Default Re: Richmond new outdoor kitchen pizza oven build

Well last night I was finally able to get a hot enough fire to clear the dome and to get floor temps next to the fire in the 500+ range. I spread all of the coals across the floor put the door on and let it go overnight. Another fire or two hopefully and I will be good to go. I have kept the vermicrete base exposed and covered the oven with a tarp only in the event of rain.

The house is complete (sorry no pics today) but still no roof.....but I am tired of waiting and after another 4+hr fire over the weekend my entire dome down to the floor finally went white. So....I made 3 different batches of dough Mon night (whole wheat and 2 caputo "00") using the FB recipe and Tscarborough's minimal kneeding technique and popped it in the fridge for a 3 day retard/gluten build. Planning to fire up the oven on Thurs and make the first pizzas for the family...pics to come of the house, the first cooking fire and of course the pizzas....fingers crossed.

congratulations on the first pizzas.

How long did it take to fire your oven before the dome went white?

thanks. I finally got the dome fully white after a 4+ hr burn (this followed a number of smaller fires over 2 wks). The next time it took about 2+hrs. This last time the dome was fully white in about an hour. It is combination I think of the oven being dryer and my fire building skills improving....I hope to fire again tomorrow and will post up how long it takes.

Finally got the soffits closed in with PVC board, filled the house with vermiculite and got the roof on. Granite counters will be this week and then just need to finish up the stone.
