time to put insulation back on

then add double insulation and start chicken wire and render,stucco,

The door was made at a friends fabrication shop and had the sheet metal guys fold it for me i went to Bunnings got a broom stick handle and cut it as required, some stainless steel electrodes,some pieces to make handle extensions and welded it all up to make a door.

I may 1 day insulate the door, i have some board left over.

you may also notice a crack in the picture of the door dead center this was my fault not a casting fault. YOU have to take the chimney out before pushing it under the veranda in the dark and wonder what the hell belted you so hard on the HEAD!!!!!


so now the oven itself is finished just a little work to do on the frame and base to finish it off

please don't pick on my render effort it was my first attempt, i was going to finish it better then it is but due to other circumstances i did not get a chance to finish it off properly.

So all told the build took me

4 days to first fire this includes the frame
and another day to do the chains and render

so here are some pictures of the spoils from last night
and a picture for anyone that is still in the cold weather

So thanks to all who shared designs, ideas, know how,
without Forno Bravo's help and plans this may never have happened

As of my attempts to go on the floor have resulted in burnt bottom raw top
I'm wondering what temperatures you guys have on the floor and on the dome

I can do it buy cooking three quarters of the time on the plate and then removing the pizza and dropping it directly on the floor

But my daughter see's any black she will say I burnt it

Move the fire off to the side and let the oven neutralize for about 10-30 minutes. and the floor will cool a bit away from the fire, but I fear that if you are not getting the dome heat you desire your oven may still be a little damp.

Does the dome clear? if it does not your dome is not hot enough.

I typicaly see dome temps at 800-950 and floor similar. I do not see any live flames licking over the dome above the pizza just hot coals on the side in your photos, it is hard not to cook the top with live flames leaping half way across the dome, You can get some additional crisping by lifting the pizza to the top of the dome at the end of the cook to final it.

A good pizza should have a touch of charring, IMO...

Aim for around 350oC floor temp for a good pizza.... do not put on too much topping and if the top needs a little more when the base is done then hold it up close to the dome roof with peel, it will be super hot up there and will finish off the top.....

The top will cook better if you maintain a flame by having a fire on the side.
