You then go to the skills suite list and tick the box along side "cement casting" ...only joking.

Dave you got me to thinking, any reason not to lower the vent a few inches into the insulation? It measures 7" thick at the top. This would lower the profile of the vent and I don't think have much effect on heat retention. I like the idea of the cardboard, thanks for the tip.

Thanks Russell, hard to believe its almost done. Assuming the igloo looks okay, I would like to put some kind of roof structure that will cover the oven and the green egg while extending far enough forward to provide some shade and shelter while cooking or grilling.

I can't see why you can't recess that in , in the scene of things that will not make a difference. I a bit confused with the size of that thing , its not a fitting that I'm familiar with and its hard to gauge it size by the background.
Good stucco ing remember its like painting the first layer is just there for the next to stick too. It doesn't have to perfect. The next are the best ones. 3 thin coats are better than two thick coats .....any day.
Regards dave

I had intended to use a 2" fitting to begin with. I decided later to use a 1". This is what mine looks like recessesd.


Edit: It is a 2"+ (beer can size) from the blanket insulation through the vermicrete layer. The space left by the beer can form is also packed with CF blanket material. My threaded 1" PVC fitting is anchored into the stucco layer and also the grout for the brick splits.

I went with a 3" fitting. I thought plug would be easier to handle and did not see a down side.

Stonecutter, I tried and I couldn't do it. This is as far as I could get.

Don't sweat it Bruce, I described best practice and what you did isn't too bad. You can brush some liquid bonding agent ( like an acrylic admix) onto it before you start your next parge.
