Nice brick work, something about fires that is mysterious.

Just had a look at the photos a little more closely , notice the cut outs in the brick back wall. Now i like that ,that's a good idea... Lets a bit of airflow around the wood.

Hey Dave,

I am not sure if it will make a difference or not but it worked out well with the brick bond so I went for it. It might just make it easier for snakes and spiders to make a home in there

Cheers,

Matt

G'Day Guys,

I had last Friday off work so I took the opportunity to start a small fire around lunchtime. I had already had a few small fires in there during the week to push out some moisture. As the day went on I slowly built it up in order to do some cooking that night for dinner. Around 6PM I had enough of a fire going that the dome finally went white and I knew she was ready to go..

I bought a long probe dial temp gauge. So I could use it while I am cooking I drilled a hole through the middle of half a brick and mounted it in there. I will swap it between that and the door when I get around to making one.

Here are some photos.... It was a bloody beauty!!! Everything was cooked to perfection and tasted sensational.

We cooked about 6 Pizza's, 2 Pides and a loaf of bread. I was very pleased with the results

Looks great. The tasty end of the WFO building project and isn't it worth the work!!

The temp gauge in the half brick is a good idea too, consider it stolen. Imitation is the highest form of flattery I am told.
