Default Re: My 3-Legged Dome

George - Is symmetry very important to you? I liken it more to some of the dome adobe houses in Santa Fe rather than a stubby whiskey bottle. I vote for no symmetry, I like the shape now and much more height may be a little imposing.

lwood,

I agree. I decided with no symmetry and went ahead and secured the sections of stove pipes. As shown in the latest photo below, the chimney is still not tall enough to code but I do have the sections to complete it. I'd like to mold around the base of the chimney with more perlcrete before adding more height to the chimney.
Thanks for your thoughts as well!

George

Default Round 3

I secured the stove pipes and molded additional perlcrete on the dome and part way up the chimney. I'm still unsure of the shape I'd like to end up with as I am not thrilled with what I'm seeing so far. I'm not so sure if I should stucco part way up the chimney or leave it naked from the dome top if I decide to go that route. Or keep a simple dome shape with a naked chimney.
Good thing with perlcrete is that I can carve off what I don't like.

Deciding on the shape is becoming to be the most difficult part of the build.

Saturday: I cleared the oven from the previous night's curing fire and threw a big 6.5lb rack of spareribs in there, my first oven cook. I covered the entry and left the ribs uncovered in there for 3 hours. I was afraid of drying out the ribs but they came out just about right, not dry at all.

Meanwhile, I did a little more work on the chimney while the ribs were cooking.
And this morning I started a new wood fire and upped the intensity a bit. I'm very happy with the way the chimney draws.

Nice looking ribs George. Isn't it great to start cooking in it? I like the way the upside down bottle shape is turning out. It's quite pleasing with the 3 legged stand. Can't wait to see the final product.

What temp did you cook the ribs at. They look great and the oven is fantastic looking.

Thanks guys!

Yeah, the shape of the oven is turning out looking like a hanging wine glass. The shape is starting to grow on me and seems to tie in well with the legs.

I threw the ribs in when the dome temp read around 350F. The floor temp was under 300. My family told me these were one of the better ribs I've done. I will be using my Weber less often now, seems like....

I temporarily extended the chimney stack and started another fire this morning.

Thanks for sending me over here, George. I thouroughly enjoyed going thru all 10 pages of the build. You've done a fantastic job on that oven.

BTW, the ribs look great!

Thanks Mark! I love that bbq site, I've learned so much there.


I did some additional chimney work this afternoon and did some cooking in the evening as I continued curing the oven. I am now building larger fires.
I also need mount some sort of a brace to secure the upper stove pipe and cap the pipe.
