Default Re: Oven number two..

I have just clocked the chimney above the insulating fire bricks and it is just a few degrees above ambient so it would seem that the thermal break works well..

I forgot to add that the oven is sitting at 250c this morning from doing pork spare ribs last night.

I managed to melt some ceramic rope that is silasticed to the fire brick reveal with the firing for last nights pizzafest.
The silastic is fine.

I could smell something getting hot last night, I never imagined it to be the ceramic rope..

I now think its fiberglass rope.
That could explain things.

Youll get more replies if you start your own thread as there a few oven builders who live in SA.

Hi Brickie,

Its getting cold in sydney over night so i am hoping that is one of my performance issues.

You mentioned before that you get around 250Deg C the morning after?

Questions;
1) Was that with or without an insulated door?
2) Whats your current morning temps?

I've put in insulation but only got 130Deg C,, but maybe thinking i need to keep driving out water.

Cheers,

Gummz

We lit the oven on Sunday to do a roast so not a roaring pizza fire ,yesterday morning it was still 250.
This morning its 125, and the ambient is 6 .

I always try to put the door on to retain the heat.
