Thanks Russell

Thanks for the compliments much appreciated.

I do have a tip I got from Doug to break the soot clear soot cycle. Apparently Doug's oven is always clean. How he does it goes like this. Heat oven to pizza temp, cook pizza, before closing down wfo, after pizza cook, re heat oven to pizza temp, remove fire when dome is clear, seal oven with door, sit around fire with a nice wine [I added this bit ]. Oven stays clean you can then cook over next however many days.

I agree with Russell on there not being any need to grind the inside of your oven. Spend as much time as you like, but I can just about guarantee you won't be looking at it once it's complete.

As to Doug's "tip" - that's pretty much just the way it works... The oven gets sooted every time you light a fire, clears when you get it hot enough, and stays clean until you light another fire. Wash, rinse, repeat

Hi Allan

too answer each question.

Just a thought, just a thought, just a thought

Seriously

I guess no body else has...because I can.. I have spent a lot of time Admiring Gianni's soap stone and it just looks very clean. So if I polished the floor it would be much easier to clean. As for the dome hmmmmm it would be

The fire cleans the floor.

Floor will expand at different rate so anything you make smooth today might not be smooth after few big fires

This only half correct...you can, but I have already I done it. I used a wet polisher on the floor BEFORE I built the dome.

I wasn't trying to achieve a polish though....this was about functionality. The bricks that I used are very rough on the surface and I wanted to close them up, and eliminate drag. I used 50 grit to knock it down then 100 to 200 for the final finish.

How firebricks turn out when trying to achieve a high gloss...I can't tell you, because in all honesty, I see little that can be gained by doing it, so I never tried. When I start the next oven I'll play around and see how it turns out.

But whatever floats your boat....if that is what you want to do, do it. There's no right or wrong on this point.
