Default Re: Brick or lazy modular

... are you thinking of using a steel arch with a brick dome? Because I was thinking about doing that. I would be afraid that it would expand or crack up being a different material. If you go with Wiley's full metal oven design you may run into trouble getting help if you need it. I could probably go with a design like his but I feel safer using things that are fixable or replaceable over time. I also just don't like the idea of not having expectations of the way the material ( the metal) would react with my cooking. Having said that it may be a better choice to use a steel arch for a whole host of reasons depending on how you use it. If you can figure a way to integrate a steel archway in it may give you some benefits... I just don't know. I'm still working on my oven. Hopefully I get it done soon. I have "enjoyed" working on it long enough.

Good luck.

Steel Arch/Brick Oven is exactly what I would like to do.

There must be a way to fasten the two together to allow for the thermal expansion. Although, I doubt there is much expansion in the Stainless the problem must be in the interface of the two.

Why not use a ceramic insulation banket layer betwen the brick and the stainless dome/entrance cover to take up any differences in expantion rates?
