Is that a sheet of plywood under the rather thin insulation under the floor?

The sheet is cement fibre board. I will admit insulation could have been greater but wanted to save weight with the oven on the deck and being mobile.

So far with the few cooks i have done external temps do not get greater than 40-50 degrees and internall temps once coals have gone out stays in the low 200s through the next day

I noticed the cook dome looks like a one piece cast. Is this the case? Could you tell me please the maker of the cast oven you have bought here. Thanks Wayne

Dome is entirely one piece, with a seperated entry piece that had a mortar joint.
Oven came from Alfresco Woodfired Ovens in Western Australia.

Absolutely loving it still, pizzas have always been good, now trying or the type of roast, so far done, roast beef and some pork belly, and also some great ribs

How hard was it to move the one piece dome into position? How heavy was it?

Moving the dome around was fairly easy. was packaged on a pallet that we carried around and sat near the stand.
We then layed a 6 metre steel SHS from the ground to the top of the stand and place our towel at the bottom.
3 of us lifted the dome and sat a edge on the towel and then slid up the steel and lowered over the fire bricks. Only took 5 minutes i spose. Weight would of been approx 200kgs
