Great looking brick work. That is an impressive arch and dome.

Thanks for the kind words guys!

I have one thing which I'd like to pick your brains for.

How should I mount the flue pipe?? I'm thinking of something like cabsauv has used. How'd I attach this to the oven? We get some pretty strong wind here and the last thing I want it for it to fall off the oven!

Oh and yea Go Aussies!

If it comes with a flange you could lay one or more courses on top of the flange to keep it there.

Yeah, i just made a steel flange that was the same diameter as the flue and slid it over the flue , securing it with a couple of tack welds .i also made sure i had enough space to sit it in to brick around to secure between a course of bricks.
If you could imagine a rectangle with a 8"hole .
got the idea from the pics in the forum , wonderfull place that....

Hughness, this gave me a bit of drama as well. I ended up casting/moulding with refractory concrete.

I left a big gap in the arch, with the sides sloping inwards. Then I jammed (technical flue building term) a bit of tin underneath to follow the internal curve, and put an 8 inch plastic plant put in there. Then I poured in the concrete, and when it was firm removed the plant pot and put my flue on. I cut about 25mm slits along the bottom of the flue, bent them out at 90 degrees and placed it on the spot, then moulded a bit more concrete around to hold it in place.

To date, no major cracks, and if the bond between the bricks and concrete separate, the angle of the bricks means gravity will help hold it in there. It sounds agricultural, but works a beauty.

I'm lucky - I built my oven so the flue passes a few foot within my shed roof and was able to put a stay across to help hold it.

Fired her up to full temp last night! Awesome!!

Got a clear dome and got to work cooking pizza!! I Think I need more flames while I'm cooking. I just couldn't get the chared crusts I wanted but the bottoms were perfect! They took a little over 2 minutes each is that too slow or just about right? Also how warm should the dome get when at full temperature? It was warm like a hot water bottle but I could leave my hand on there all night, it was comfortable warm not hot. Is that alright?

Thanks for everyone's inspiration and the knowledge you have all shared on here. I've been reading it for a VERY long time!

All ovens cook, heat, cool and react differently, if it works, then it works.
