Ellie,

You and Dale are putting together a great looking oven.

You should be on to the next learning curve soon, "how do I use this thing?" and that is great fun also.

Beautiful! When do you get to start curing fires? It's been at least a week since the dome was finished, hasn't it?

Very nice looking oven. The whole thing seemed to evolve overnight!
Enjoy!

Thanks, Dale said he could have done it in a week if he had worked with another guy like he usually does. He did it all by himself. We were hindered by a week and a half of rain, but I swear, he was here working in between rain drops!!

If you ever want brick work done, he is your man.

Nikki, I promised Dale that I would not start a fire until March 1st, one month from when the dome was finished. I will keep that promise. Besides, I need to get a good cookbook! There is the one with the dvd that comes with it and I am really hoping that it is a good primer.

Ellie,
You must have great patience.March 1st! Most of us were very quick in starting our curing fires. Les, didn't you start your first fire as you were setting your plug.

Pretty much. I recall going away a few days (after the plug) for the forth of July and then going nuclear the next weekend.

Yeah, I am a patient person, all right.... however, I also don't know what I am doing when it comes to pizza, so I have to do some research. This will give me a little time, lol.

I never thought the dome would look as good as it does. I was prepared for "rough" so I am so happy, that I wll defer to the "month wait" since he is so sure that will do it. Dale says I can make a big fire if I want to at that time, as long as I wait the month. I will still cure it slowly anyway. I want to make sure that this thing works well.

Ellie, when my dome starts cracking due to my impatience, I'll send you the pictures to help pass the time.

if you do find a great cook book please let me know. As mentioned before, that's the next learning curve!
