How your insulation should work
 
1 Attachment(s)
I cooked 8 pizzas on Saturday, July 13 at about 7:30PM. I burned the oven for about an hour and a half before that, less than 2 cuft of wood, and kept the coals and flames going while I cooked for another hour. Today at about 7:30PM, I shot the oven with my gun at 130+ degrees. That is 5 days with 6 inches of rain and about an 85 degree average ambient temperature. You can never have too much insulation.

Interesting! I had to check mine when I saw your post. I cooked 4 pizzas on Saturday night. Didn't pay particular attention to putting the door on because I didn't plan to cook anything the next day. Ambient temps are, um, a bit cooler here (nights in the fifties this week). Just checked and the oven is at 122.

That's great, but if you're not using that oven heat, then thers's little point. Hoped you cooked lots in the 5 days.

With no door on I am at about 250 degrees (Fahrenheit!) 24 hours after firing. This weekend I will be building a door and I will put it on right after firing on Sunday night and see how that changes things!

I didn't cook anything after pizza or the temps would have been lower. I usually get at least one more days cook out of it though.

A big chunk of dead cow, a couple of drunk chickens and some corn put in at a little over 400 degrees. That should get it down to 300 pretty quick.
