Default Re: My first oven build...HELLO from Texas

In conclusion...

8 pizzas Friday night, INCREDIBLE!
Saturday 1/2 cord of seasoned oak, picked up and stacked under oven, laborious...
Sunday, 5 loaves bread with 10 pizzas, FANTASTICALLY IMPRESSIVE!

A big THANK YOU to everyone on Forno Bravo Forum!

The oven performs better than expected, We stopped making pizzas at 8pm last night, 12 hours later the oven is heat soaked at 410*F.
I am very pleased and now I do know why I built the oven. Note the crack in the front arch, it terminates at the dome. I will treat it like an expansion joint fill it with caulk and cover it with limestone.

The bread looks amazing, as does the pizza. I am seeing more and more ovens with lighting. I did not get the memo but it is a great idea. One that I need to heed myself.

Good looking pizzas and bread! I am sure the oven will keep improving as it continues to cure as well!
Congrats!

Thumbs up You (and your oven) have arrived!

Your pictures are great! Happy to see you enjoying your new oven. The crack is minor, you will find a solution. The bread. The bread finds me salivating and wanting to taste it from my own oven, yet incomplete.

mn8tr, I'm planning to make a long oven landing, 18 inches at the back and as wide at the front as I can manage....With some kind of lighting in there.
