Hi Mike,
I just closed my dome tonight with the keystone! I am getting close now to firing and curing the oven. Which type of oven did you build? AS or Pompeii?
I am getting to the point of having to decide on adding extra thermal mass/cladding on the outside of the dome and I am still not sure of the benefits/trade offs. I am building a pompeii oven with 4 inch walls so far And I am now working on the vent chimney area. My goal is for pizza and then baking bread with other cooking as the temps allow.
Let me know how you use your oven and any suggestions you may have for my build.
Thanks
John

Hi John, congrats on nearing completion of your oven!! As for mine, I actually purchased it from a place in New Haven called Tuscany Fire back in
'06. It's a Difiore oven imported from Italy. It's a modular oven consisting of 14 individual pieces. Since I did not trust my skills, I hired a mason to assemble it and build an enclosure around it. I obviously failed in my attempt to post a photo of it. If you can give me a helpful hint on posting the photo, I will attempt it again.
As far as what type of cooking I do in my oven, I do virtually everything you would do in a conventional oven. Besides pizza, I've baked bread, lasagna, porchetta (Italian style pork roast), our Thankgiving turkey every year, roasted root veggies, etc. I'm hoping to do my first suckling pig sometime this summer as well.
Good luck with your oven John, I know you must be very excited!

-Mike.

Hi Mike,
You may need to down size the pic to 800 by 600 pixels, there is a limit on size of pictures.
Hope this helps
John
