I am not sure what you are talking about when you say the double barrel approach. I never intended to use both at the same time. The lower part has no insulation, however it does have 2" of concrete cladding. Also it is hard to see but there is a block wall behind the back brick work. Have a look at the pics to see what I am talking about.

Do you still think there is a problem with no insulation?

You can also see the roof detail. I am not sure what you call that type of "key slot" but that is the only way I could figure out how to hold the arch together with a flue hole in the middle of it without using some type of steel support.

PS Thanks for the white oven info... Interesting.

Is the bottom to act as a fireplace only? How do you plan top and bottom for usage? That is what I am wondering. I would like to answer further once I understand the usage of each. When I say double barrel, your top and bottom oven had me thinking with reference to the double barrel of a shotgun.

It may only be a fireplace, or smoke generator for the main oven, or just a grill. Too early to tell yet. The top is obviously the bread oven. I don't think there will be any problems, only time will tell.

Knowing that detail, then yes, it looks to be quite the set up. One you will enjoy for many uses. And like the others are saying, keep info and photos coming.

It is interesting and it will be a great learning experience, nice to have some options for the wood burning apparatus. Unfortunately I can not experiment with the oven as much as I would like because it is in the country and only gets occasional weekend visits. However, I can now work on my bread and pizza recipes, then try them on my stone in the oven. It should give me a good idea of what I would like to make.

Speaking of which, I found this article about a pizza maker in Santa Rosa. Sunnyside up egg on a pizza, WOW so many things to try…

I also really enjoyed the "similar threads" at the bottom of this thread, so much great information here!

I just picked up the book " American Pie", on the cover I saw the picture of the Sunnyside up egg pizza. The first time I heard of it was that place in Santa Rosa. So much to learn...
