Hi David s
as always with you advice your right on the money...it was always impressed on me that cement cured and if left to dry out it stoped the proper curing process. I've always covered and watered any job.......
.....but the glad wrap...sorry I see it working and working better than any tarp...but....it just tickles my funny bone.....I have these pics in my head of Oscars wrapped oven looking like an oversize leg of lamb from "Coles supermarket"...sorry.

Oscar please just one pic? you can always edit it out later...

Regards Dave

Yep, that's it. You will see lots of little beads of moisture under the cling wrap, so it's working well. The hardest part is to restrain yourself from ripping off the plastic and starting fires.

Dear Oscar

You know what you can do now!.....Tell the neighbours that you've sold the oven for say 5 grand and its been wraped for transporting. and you'll use the money for a bigger oven.....recon they will be fooled
Great idea Davids... might look a little strange...but that'll stop it from drying out!!!

Regards Dave

Sorry Dave but I've been very lazy lately and other than cooking in the oven all I have done is waterproof it.
I will get around to tiling and rendering it and making a nice garden bed around it but as always finding the time and motivation is a struggle, lol.

Alright Dave here it is not much has changed with a few things still needed to be done before I can say it's finished. The tiles you can see are just sitting there for effect nothing else. They still need to be glued down and maybe stained a more red/brown color as I believe the orange and black don't suit.

It's not the best pic but I promise I'll take better ones soon.

Looking good Oscar, how do you find the 6" flue, does it handle the smoke ok?

Thanks Al

The Flue is a little small and if I had to do it over again I'll go 8". I'm not sure what I was thinking getting the 6" as it should of been a no brainer. Go larger and play it safe rather save a few $$$ and gamble it'll be alright. You can see from the pics the bricks are stained as about 20-30% of the smoke goes over them but once the oven is hot the flue seems to cope.
I'm really enjoying cooking in it and I'm about to do my second roast pork tonight. Hopefully it turns out better than my first attempt.

Dinner tonight will be roast pork, Garlic prawns, chicken wingets (buffalo wings) roast potatoes in foil and chorizo in terracotta pots with olive oil (Spanish salami) and it's proper chorizo not the garbage Woolworths sells.
Have a few friends over tonight so I can't stuff this up or it'll be KFC.
