worked on the enclosure yesterday and today, below are 3 pics.

- put some wire mesh over the blanket to help keep it in place.
- built metal rafters to span the enclosure
- enclosure with metal rafters and cross supports

overall the enclosure is vey sturdy and I'm happy the way it turned out.

Default Re: 36" oven in Colorado Springs (loose vermiculite)

since I got the vermiculite cheap ($10 for a 4 cu ft bag), I got 5 bags and it basically filled the entire closure, good calculations (estimations) I guess.

Nice on the insulation, and now that you are weatherproof good cooking ahead.

That's the plan....

day 1 = pizza
day 2 = ribs
day 3 = cinnamon rolls
day 4 = roast

Ok, just guessing there, but I'll let everyone know the heat profile as the days go on.

Switch the ribs and roast or do them both on day 4 or 5, day two could be whole turkey or chicken after some nice crusty bread. Casseroles in cast iron also do well on day 2, steaks or fish with a refresh to the coals on a Tuscan grill are also a day 2 treat.
