Default Re: New Zealand Fuera Oven comes in for landing

Thanks. The stand was made by the same guy - he mills the wood himself off his farm and is made from Macrocarpa (Cupressus macrocarpa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) - or what "you guys" call Monterey cypress.

They grow large down here - like 40m high. He is making me a coal rake and a pizza peel with the handles being made from the same tree.

Hey Andy.

Yep - Cured it over a weeks worth of fires. The Fuera ovens hold up very well - no cracking and held heat really well.

While doing the curing we roasted a chicken (cooked fantastically) and made a really nice Hearth bread.

Super impressed.

Picked up some 00 flour and am going to have a crack at pizzas for the first time tomorrow. Complete with the big angry fire.

Chris
