Hi Bert

I havenít done much work on the oven in the last few months, due to wet weather, flu, being busy doing other things etc. I am still contemplating how I am going to do my enclosure and have changed my mind a couple of times. I also decided I needed a bigger wood store so I have been back on the jack hammer pretty much carving a wood store into solid rock.

I suppose the other reason I have not done much work on the oven is I am having a great time cooking in it. The pizzas have been coming out superbly. I have also been doing roasts, casseroles and pide-bread (ala Karangi Dude). But the thing I have really enjoyed cooking is bread. Our sour dough starter has really developed and since we have adopted the no-knead bread method (check out Breadtopia.com) we are cooking bread better than we can by at any bakery near by.

We cooked pizza and pide bread last night and mixed up some bread dough before we went to bed. I had to open the oven a bit this morning to cool it to 250c before cooking the bread. Here is the result:

Sharkey, that bread looks awesome! Looks like those FF fire bricks are doing the trick and retaining good heat.

I hear you re the weather. Ever since I broke ground its rained. I thought I'd be smart and do all the heavy lifting and excavation in the colder months, but alas with rain and kids etc that hasnt happened yet. The thought of lifting besa blocks and hand mixing concrete in 40 degree heat does appeal to me much + all the cold beer it would cost me to keep hydrated.

Question: how did you get the photo directly onto your blog? I've only ever done thumbnails but your option is much more convenient.

Keep us up to date. i enjoyed following your build.

Bert

I've been admiring your oven and your bread. Baking such a loaf is a big motivation for my build.

I've been reviewing your oven build again and find it very inspiring. I will be copying some of your ideas for my transition and vent. I really like your photos and think you have the most dramatic [hard earned] setting of all the builds on the forum. But, I was wondering why you needed so much chimney length to clear the rocks, when it appears there is no fire danger involved? gmchm

That bread looks absolutely delicious. My goal is to achieve bread that looks that good.

Nice job!
