I made an insulated door this weekend.

The bricks look great. I love the look of old brick.

Great oven and cool looking door. What's the other side look like? How did you insulate?

Hi,

I don't have a pic of the other side. I'll take a pic and post it tomorrow.

I used 2" worth of ceramic blanket remnants and completely "boxed" them in this aluminum box which I made from alum sheeting cut from a couple of old serving trays. The handle is from a notched mortar trowel. I simply broke off each notch with a pair of pliers.
The thermometer is a 750F bbq unit with a 5" stem which is secured with a sprung clip on the stem at other end.

I think the insulated door is holding temps well. I baked some banana bread last night with the residual heat from a firing couple of nights ago.

Nice looking door George. Did you fold (bend) in "tabs" on the sides under the top & screw (the 2 rivet looking things) in the corner? Or is there, as you said, an entire box from each side, 1 slightly smaller than the other?

Hey, good looking banana bread too.

Thanks Dino.... No, I just used one box, with both sides tapered inward, and a flat 'lid' riveted all around on the other side. I'll post a pic of the back side tomorrow as I am at work at the moment.

Looks great George, I'm planning on making a similar one with some remnants of my insulating board. I don't know what metal I'll be using, I guess I'll have wifey dig through some pans no longer in use. How thick is the aluminum plate you used and how is it holding up with the high temps?

Hi,

The aluminum sheeting I used from the trays were not at all thick and rigid, and they were pretty pliable, so very easy to work with. I know alu has a low melting point but for the entry area post pizza temps I think it'll hold up well. If it should deteriorate down the road I'll make something identical again but with steel sheeting, like 26 gauge, for instance. I like door so far. One handed operation (so you can hold food in the other hand), and very light.
