Russell,
I had to go back and look at that one myself. It got me to thinking about a foil roasting pan. The disposable type turkey or large square rectangle pans. I just thought I would add a little slant to a great idea.

Annie M.
If you can't find something similar to that Bruce's Door was made or don't have the tools to work the thicker aluminum there may be another alternative. I think that a temporary door could easily be fashioned from a couple of these disposable pans. The material is thin and can easily be worked without tools. Stuff it with vcrete like Russell mentioned or pack with crumpled aluminum foil.

Thanks Annie M.
But, not really my idea alone. Bruce came up with an idea, Russell saw where it might help and posted it on the forum. Russell's post got me to thinking. It's just the forum working together to help solve a problem. If it works for you, thank the forum . If not............... blame Russell.

Seriously, I'm glad that you are having a great day.

I could think of many reasons for that thing not to work but it did a number of times! for a friend of mine. I'm sure you can do better

Italian ovens traditionally had wooden doors for baking and roasting. As well as soaking the door in a bucket they would seal around the sides of the door with wet newspaper.

Lot's of ways to skin the cat and I think you have enough local resources/materials to find something that works for you. Like Gulf say, you can always blame me........LOL. Congrats on the first baking.

Talking Re: Rustic Primitive Materials

Gudday Annie
Happy that you enjoy your oven. Yippee! ( hope that didnt sound funny with the Aussie accent ) Noticed pizza has not been a priority. Originally pizza was the flat test bread that the bakers would make for themselves in a oven waiting to equalize and cool.
Regards dave

If it fits and you can encapsulate some insulation into it, It's a door... it is also great to hear that you are cooking.
