Congratulations Colin on your chicken.

A few weeks ago I also cooked a chicken, tasted fantastic. The WFO is certainly like a drug, the food tastes so good. Ill be interested to see how your first pizzas go. Keep up the good work.

Hi Colin
Looking good on curing and first cooking, been working away so first chance to catch-up on your build.
Agree with others comments on your neat brickwork, the photo of your oven quote "My nice neat clean and pretty oven is all dirty" all black showing off the joints is a ripper and then the dome clearing to reveal the keystone is something to be proud of.
I will try your chicken on the weekend, Pizza Saturday night, scones Sunday morning, your chicken Sunday night and slow roast butterfly lamb on Monday.
Hope your pizza goes great tonight.

I regards to the surprising high temps at underside of hebel, same happened with my curing, slab under side got to 100C and that's when i heard the dull thud as the slab neatly divided itself into four, now that I have had four clearing fires and cooling to ambient, the cracks are hairline and difficult to find (I know where they are).
The underside still gets to 40C but I guess the 50mm calsil and slab have dried out a bit.

The amount of wood for a clearing fire in my 42" is about the amount in the white box (and a bit more) in photo, I start with american oak offcuts for 1/2 hour and then start chuckin on redgum, oven starts to clear in 1&1/2 hours and then all good by 2 hours, I could go quicker I guess but I like to ramp up slowly, as you are finding out the top gets hot fairly quick but sides & floor need time to absorb heat.

Anthony

Hi Liteceeper

Stuffing recipe

2 middle bacon rashers, trimmed, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1/3 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
1/3 cup roasted pine nuts
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 cups fresh multigrain breadcrumbs [or substitute]
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves


Make Maple macadamia stuffing: Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onion. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until softened. Add bacon and garlic. Cook, stirring, for 4 to 5 minutes or until bacon has browned. Add macadamias. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Cool for 10 minutes.

Ok am about to give you a lesson. I thought I had made a monumental error with my heat break. SS tube stuffed with Calsil surrounded by calsil with 3mm air break to Granite landing. This morning when I took readings 12 hours after firing I had these readings

heart 120c SS 190c granite landings 230c. this made no sense to me. SO I have been thinking all day how to remove the SS.

My son came over for first pizza night. Cranked it up to 500c and discussed the readings with my son. we mucked around and found that if the IR gun is angled the temps from the SS and Granite read high. If IR gun held at 90deg to surface the readings were. Hearth 120c SS 70c Granite 60c.

it appeared the IR gun and the reflective surfaces [SS and Granite] effect the results. we checked this out at least 30 times while firing the last readings were at clearing temps were

Hearth 420c SS 220c Granite 160c gun held at 90 deg. angled Hearth 420c SS 495C Granite 360C

Interesting observations on the IR gun, will have to try it next time I fire up. Right now I have a 12" of snow on my oven

I can confirm the behaviour. When I check my oven the same happens, IR guns don't like some reflective surfaces or materials.

Weeks ago I did the same testing on my chimney and had the same result. I don't have any granite, but even dull (not shiny) SS reflected infra-red... interesting, that the properties of infra-red light acts different to visible light.

Years ago I did some infra-red photography, using now ancient film technology. Landscapes where surreal with this spectrum. It acts different to visible light that we are used to. It would be interesting if someone had a infra-red camera to check what it looks like from an IR perspective.

Cheers,

Steve.

The variance most likely relates to the emissivity of the materials which can vary between 0.1 for polished surfaces to 0.9 for granite good IR thermometers can be adjusted to accommodate the variance

Yep I can adjust the emisivity on my gun. But to what?

Looks like I may have to repeat my test.
