Hi Faith in VA,
Beautiful brickwork. I see you also went bricks on edge for the oven floor.

Dave

Thanks Dave,

The brick work was a true challenge at times. Once where the dome intersects the arch I was almost in tears trying to figure it out.

Yes I did stand them up on edge and they are sitting on a set laying flat so the oven floor is 7" of mass. My primary purpose is baking bread so I have a large oven mass all around.

I just finished my insulation layer and one coat of hard shell over the insulation. This weekend I'm planning on a large bread bake so I'm excited to see what the oven can do. I had one good batch of bread so far and that was befor the insulation was installed.

Thanks again, Faith

So--- how deep is the vent area? Looking at other posts it tends to vary. I think too much vent just gets in the way of cooking, but it needs to be big enough to capture the smoke. What would be the min/ideal depth?

Thanks
Mike

Hi Faith, How did the bread turn out and how is the extra mass to heat and cool? I would like to also use my oven for bread and pizza. I would also like to win the lottery! So the balance of mass vs firing times is challenged. I would love to hear how long your firing times are and how long it retains the heat.
Thanks in Advance
John

Just wondering. Has anyone considered also putting a reveal in the floor of the oven? gmchm

Nope!

I think it may hinder sliding RED HOT pots and casserole dishes in and out of oven. Plus another place to stop a peel in its tracks. Just my 2 cents

Well, my thought was it would be a sight inconvenience for making pizzas, but could serve as more secure way to retain heat for baking and roasting.

I did think of doing a trough on the bottom to insert the bottom of your door and then tilt it up against the reveal. That would make a good seal! I didn't bother with it because heat rises and you wouldn't lose much under the door as opposed to the top of the door. But that is an option for sure. Maybe I'll get my grinder out.... Hmmmmmmmm Oh thats right I have it out to fix my cracked Dome! lol

Then my other "thought" was to make the entryway about an inch lower as well, so the door could be put in and removed easier. If the entryway and chimney are going to be seperated from the dome for the "heat break", having thinner floor bricks or insulation would not be so much of a factor.
