42" Inch WFO with 24 inch dome height
 
I am almost finished with my pizzza oven construction, and I have realized I am going to be at a 24 dome height with a 12.5 inch door height.

Should I fire and see what happens, or make design changes (i.e. raise the door height or other) before that?

Thx

I think you will find that your oven will work fine. I altered the design of my oven when building one for a friend who wanted more height. By raising the dome height around 15% and also the door height a little I was expecting the oven to perform differently. There is no perceptible difference in the way it operates that we could tell, fires the same, cooks the same, fuel usage the same. Your door height would seem to be too low, but there seems to be plenty of leeway as your diameter and therefore oven volume is not increased drastically.

That is very comforting to me to hear. Thank you for your insight.

I made a bigger mistake i made mine 26.5 with a 12.5 door... I was going to try to fix it but had positive feedback so I left it alone. I hit a white oven in about 1.5 hrs ( not sure if that's good or in the ball park?) but pizzas turn out great... no issues with other foods and breads. all good.

Pretty much the average as far as I can tell?

You need to stuff the legs in too otherwise they will be a little rare.

Hi Chip,

I'm confused. What legs, needs stuffing in?

Look at picture one of post 4 above by MAD1.

A joke is not good if it needs explanation but here we go, MAD1 refers to cooking other food in his oven and it is "all good" In the photo MAD1 is in the process of building his oven and someone is sticking legs out working on the oven build, it looks like he is cooking someone in his oven but in order to get the legs cooked he should have them inside the firebox or they will not get cooked or they will be rare - underdone. My attempt at humor lost again to the heavens.
