I would replace it. It is ten or twelve bucks, but it is also definitely broken.

Oh, yeah. I replaced it. It wasn't as hard as i expected to remove it, but I had to chisel out the Heatstop 50....that stuff is hard as nails.

WCD,
That is a damn fine oven you have built. Problems are part of the process. The good thing is you are cooking and eating out of the oven and what you have left is the cosmetic stuff ( also the stuff that is most important to your significant other, an important person to keep happy). The rest of it is easy, but time consuming because it will show forever ( all that great brick work you did on the inside of the oven, only you and the people on this forum care about, everybody else- its about the pizza and how the oven looks from the outside).
Nice job, I really like the red brick enclosure and stand.
Eric

I laid about 85 bricks yesterday. I have the whole thing up about 6 feet tall and will soon be able to start my roof supports. The sides don't need to go any higher. I am definitely excited.

Now that's a brick oven. Looks great. I really like the look of a red brick oven, very traditional.

I've been wanting to post how impressed I am at a pic you posted 2 pages back: 3 pizza's at one time? My personal best is 2 and I find it exhausting. Then again, I don't have kids clamoring for pizza, honing my oven skills .

Nice looking oven,
Dino

Thanks. I usually crank out 6-9 pizzas at a time. Then I have lunch made for a day or two. The teenage son can clean house on pizza night.

Great looking brick work. I too have had many distractions and I believe I might be the slowest brick layer ever. Good luck on the roof, can't wait to see it finished off.

It has been a while since I posted. Last weekend I did some work on the front of the oven and started the chimney. Today I did a bit more and since I have only about25 bricks left before I must there is nothing left to except chimney, I will start the roof work tomorrow. I'm gonna start the framing. As most of you can imagine, I am pretty excited about that.
