Thank you.

I have had a very successful heating and cooking process this go round. Great pizza, Decent bread, Day two was chicken soup. 5 qt cast iron pot with 8 chicken thighs, carrots, celery. put it in at over 350 degrees in the morning at 7 am and pulled it out at about 4 pm.




It was fantastic. The kids really dug in.

On day three,, I put in two bottom round roasts at 10:30 and pulled them at about 6 pm. the oven was at about 200 degrees the whole day. Meat was internal temp of 140 when I pulled it and I stuck it in a preheated oven that was 450 degrees, for 3 minutes just to carmelize the surface of the meat.

Good looking food. We have done mostly pizza and some bread but this spring and summer am going to cook a lot of variety. May even make an Argentinian Oven as well.

I've been cooking lots of bread and pizza and havn't been doing too much to finish trimming out the oven but little by little I have been edging toward being finished. I Got some white Fabral ( the roofing place I bought my steel roof material from gave it to me for free....it was a throwaway sheet with a scratch and a small bend in it. ) It worked quite nicely. I trimmed the sides of the oven out with an old piece of white vinyl siding soffit. I used a pair of metal fabrication pliers to uncrimp the end so I could slide it up under the steel roofing, then fastened it in and pulled it around, screwing it to the steel studs as I went. Then I painted it with acrylic latex paint that matches the roof almost perfectly. Tomorrow I hope to trim it out with some Cedar I bought. Of course, I had pizza for dinner again tonight. the 24 hour cold ferment recipe that is reccomended on here. It was awwesome. The bread is still rising and I hope to have a coupled decent loaves to take over to a friend's house tomorrow night.

It's morning time in CT and I haven't had breakfast yet so seeing your bread makes me extremely hungry. Oven roof and soffit looking good. Striped Bass are running pretty good so cooked some up on the WFO. Outstanding the way it comes out in the oven. Actually everything seems to taste great when you cook with wood.

The food looks FANTASTIC! Great job of getting me motivated while recuperating from a severe flu/sinus infection! I will be cutting bricks in less than a minute after this Post! Great Pics! I'm drooling here!

Wish I never gave up my boat, those Striped Bass sound awfully good right about now! I may have to get another boat, I miss fresh sea food!


Keep up the great work and thanks for the motivational photos!

Love the look of the cedar in the front peak. Goes real well with the brick. I did a porchetta last wee along with some stuffed breads and roasted potatoes, mushrooms and onions (see my post in the food section. After seeing the roast you made just had to do it. It was outstanding. Can't wait to cook again.
