Wrap you temporary door in aluminium foil. It goes a long way to protecting from the heat. If it gets tacky and falls off ....how cares its a temporary door, it just has to work once to be useful

I think thats what I'll do Dave, wrap the crap out of a piece of CFB and my plywood template w HD foil.
I just drew out plans for what I want to do w the door and it will take me a while. Im going to use a Rutland gasket around the outside. I know its not "food rated" but Ive used these on my BGE for years with good luck.

I had the pleasure of visiting today, and it is a lovely oven. When you get the brick wrap and roof on it it will be outstanding. You are well on your way to Neapolitano pizza as well. This is your goal (all it takes is heat and slavish devotion to your dough (not my pizza, it is the Master, TXCraig's)):

edit: Those are those little oil cups, Vermont smoked I told you about.

Dave,

That's a lot of heavy soot on your outer arch, are you overloading your chamber or is your flue inadequate?

That is the inner arch. The flue arch is not there yet no place else for the smoke to go. Just my observation.

Thanks for making a celebrity appearance and giving me some good advice Tom! I learned several things:
  • every 3 or so pizzas, drag some coals over the floor
  • put some flour on the peel to make the Pizza move better
  • keep a good flame going, not only for the radiant heat but for LIGHT
  • Occasionally(after coal drag) slap the floor w the peel to clear ash out
  • What a "Jack arch" is

Here's one pic but several more from last night (including a couple w Tom) in my Picasa page (see below).
Woke up this AM with about 30 Facebook pics and notifications from friends that were there!

We had cooked 15 various Pizzas when things finally slowed down so I put my foil covered temp door on and then about 15 minutes later more people showed up! I removed the door, threw on a few hickory slats and still had enough dough left to cook 3 more! So,,,, 2 ended up being Cinammon/Sugar/Butter/Apple things which were great too!

from everyones comments and expression, this will be a great asset to us. We have alot of church friends and love to do outdoor entertainment. thanks for everybodys help here!
BTW, It's 400 degrees in there this AM

I see from your album you visited Pieous. Did you talk to Josh? He really has it going on out in Dripping. You should also go visit Steven at Bufalina on the East side, he is currently the king of Neapolitano in Central Texas, and a nice guy to boot.

Gudday GarnerAC
Sounds like your pizza night, has turned out better than you expected. It's seems everyone loves pizza out if one if these ovens and you always have the satisfaction of knowing that you built it yourself!
I've deleted that post before , sorry I realized I was rude to carry out a cross conversation over your own
Again congratulations!
Regards dave
