Looks great, Dino! I'm always amazed at the stuff you can pull out of your oven. Thanks for posting.

Happy new year to you and your family!

Thanks Mike. Happy New Year to you and yours as well. Thanks everyone for you kind words.

I've been noticing posts about other foods besides pizza's in their ovens and that's a good thing. I've been reading Asimenia post on her piglet and will make that as one of my wfo goals in the New Year. I've been going cross-eyed all month hearing Johnny Mathis singing about 'chestnuts roasting over an open fire" and until Kebwi Keith posted it...never thought of doing it.

thanks again everyone and happy new year.

I acid washed my outer arch bricks so they are sparkly and red again. There is nothing left to stucco, so it's done. Technically speaking, I still have to make my side storage door that will match the eaves and real, insulated steel oven door for when I'm baking but those will take a back seat for the summer.

A work of art!

I've been thinking about lighting my oven....Now I know how to do it: With can lites in the soffet

No problem Lburou,
They are 20 watt MR11 low voltage lights wired with "malibu light" cable to an LV (low volltage) transformer I bought at Home Depot. The lights I bought on-line.

They are small and fit in nice with the size of the oven and provide PLENTY of light.
Good luck, Dino

Thanks Dino

I'm looking at cross purposing an automotive Exhaust Gas Temperature (EGT) gauge to monitor oven saturation. The two 12V systems are compatable, no?

Depends - I think most low voltage lighting systems are AC (DC is available) Automobiles use DC..

I thought ALL low voltage was DC. Maybe just the cheap stuff, though.

The cheap stuff is what I'd be looking at .

I apologize for hijacking your thread Dino, I didn't intend to....A moderator can split this subject into a new thread if you ask him....

Cool Re: Dino's 42" Pizza Oven Starts

All low voltage stuff is DC - there is a transformer to convert the AC to DC.

Just need to be sure that there is a proper sized fuse as the amperage may be too much!

Dino, I am in awe of your oven - I bow in your general direction. I am getting so many ideas from all the builders here on the site!

Uhhh - There is not a transformer on the planet that will convert AC to DC. What a transformer does is step down (or up depending on the need) the voltage. You need to rectify the AC to get some semblance of DC. Also, there is a myriad of product that operates at low voltage AC. Your electric toothbrush is an example.

Dino - sorry to hi jack your thread. BTW, the lighting is awesome!
