Cooked pizza last night ! took 1.5 hours to clear the dome but was amazing when it finally happened . I wrapped oven in 1 layer of blanket and was only slightly warm on outside at the peak of fire. Under the hearth was only 18 degrees so no heat at all getting through 4" of vermicrete. I thought I may have made a mistake not using board but it seems not.
I think we had it too hot at first , was taking 2 mins to cook a pizza ! very happy can now get on with the rendering..
Had a tray of snapper wings in cream sauce in oven while heating up , we just used bought bases making dough is a whole new thing
cheers

Man Ive been hammering the oven every week end since completetion , put on a few kilos as well. Not 1 crack in the oven except for a 5cm long hairline in the render surrounding the chimney Ive had it to over 500 degrees C . Most of my friends are pissed at me because there now saying they wont buy ordinary pizza any more ! And to think 5 courses from the top I was thinking it was all too hard
Big pizza night for new commers tonight
