Second day of pizza making and things went well. The oven was still hot from yesterday so it took about an hour for it to come up to full temp once I lit the fire. I did not see any steam coming through the insulation today. Made four pizzas and then roasted a chicken. I cooked the chicken in a cast iron pot with the lid off. I dont have a door yet so I just stacked some fire bricks in the door way and it seemed to work fine. The chicken was quartered and it was cooked in about 35 minutes. It was the best roast chicken I have ever tasted. The pizzas also came out great but there is always room for improvement. I need some practice managing the pizza in the oven.

Doesn't look like you need much practice. The pizzas look great! Nice job!

I have not posted in a while as it was a busy summer of using the oven for cooking but not building. With the cold weather closing in I decided to make the push and finish the outside of the oven.

Here is the progress...

1. I made a switch and replaced my clay flue liner with a duratech chimney system.
2. I used a thin brick system called Brick It to cover the outside of my base with red clay brick.
3. I made a red brick arch in front with wide mortar joints. I hide a small brick inside the big joints because I was concerned about the size of the mortar joint but I liked the look. I hope that works, only time will tell.
3. I covered my dome with lathe and did the first coat of stucco.

I plan on one or two more coats of stucco in the next few days.....

The cost of the chimney can vary from about $200-500 depending on what you need in regarding to mounting pieces, length, accessories. I went with this system because I like the slender look of this chimney vs bricking around a clay flue liner.
