Default Re: 36" oven in Colorado Springs (grill and counter)

put some temp doors below the grill. On the back side of the grill, the mason put a few bricks soldier style, for venting.

Default Re: 36" oven in Colorado Springs (sink and counter)

sink (not plumbed) and counter, just using the sink for an ice bin, gotta keep the drinks cold. also some "venting" on the back side.

and finally, a couple pics of the finished oven.

already had a trial run where we made 12 pizzas, then followed by a sat night party for friends and family, made 44 pizzas that night, and was a great success.

Default Re: 36" oven in Colorado Springs (back of oven)

and since we wanted to challenge the mason, we decided to do some additional brick work detail on the back of the oven. we think it turned out great!

there are no doors on the back side.
the venting is mostly for the gas grill, and then just general airflow (prevent moisture buildup).

Just wanted to share a nice photo of the WFPO all tucked in for the winter.
