Default Masonry heater association oven

http://mha-net.org/docs/v8n2/wildac06b.htm

This is a fun photo journal of a weekend oven project.

They talk about an oven light - castable refractory frame with a ceramic glass window with electric light behind it.

Anyone got one of those in their oven?

I'll say it is fun. Wow! lots of good pictures there. I love the shape of the oven and everything about it. That is really cool. Were you there Cristo? Does the light really go out when you shut the door?

Default Argentine "horno de campo" oven

Although these ovens are called "mud ovens" in Argentina, many are made of fire brick and refractory mortar, like this one I built with a friend in Las Vegas. The entire process from breaking ground to our first pizza is documented photographically at: http://nervegna.blogspot.com/

Hello Marcel!

I don't recall seeing an answer re sleeping soldiers - my supplier wants full flat tapered bricks to be used on their side for the first course...

I was considering putting down a course of 11 (in my case for the 39in dome) full UNtapered bricks for the first course, sitting straight on the SuperIsol. (I have thought up a kind of insulated 'well' filled with perlite cement mix to take the outward thrust of the dome...)

BTW, my supplier recommends a one-inch thick sheet of SuperIsol - anything thicker than that would be a waste of dough, they stated. Is that acceptable? Or should I put a bed of perlite/cement mix onder the SuperIsol as well?

Thanks in advance for any pointers on these subjects!

Rgds,

Carioca

Good ideas in this series of pictures - and the construction shots also demonstrate what I meant when I said I prefer well-timed snaps to a YouTube video...:-)

Cheers,

Carioca

This is my first oven It is about as small as I dared go 500 mm diam. Works really well though. It'll still be over 200 C at midnight. Has 2 1/2 inch walls and 3" fibreglass insulation.

Hi David,

Glad to see you made your oven, and that it's working well despite its smaller size. Is smaller really better?

Here's a link to a traditional Argentine oven I built with a friend in Las Vegas. Happy cooking!
