Hey Tex,

Where ya been? Door and set up look great. Me, I am still plugging away on the finishing. Some truth that when the ovens get functional the finish work seems to drag on. Laid out the centerlines on the dome for my shingles and installed my vent in my dome but now working on a pergola adj. to my oven. But nothing like your set up.

Hey Russell
man, i started a big landscape remodel for front and back. Been playing in the dirt way too much. Moving sprinklers, lots of concrete, brick walls, etc. I still need to finish the pergola too. My son graduated from high school, so have been busy with that too.

I am looking forward to the shingles on the dome. That is so cool and i kinda wish i would have tried that. But Good to be done with that as well.
Tracy

Nice to see you getting cooking in that thing! What I want to know is how hot is it outside the oven?

the outside of the stucco is ambient temp, maybe a few extra. That thing was still at 450f after 48 hours on the door thermometer. The steel door just radiates heat out i think though. But still that is really good retention i am thinking also considering that i cooked twice in it during those 48 hours after the initial fire. I will get some accurate numbers next firing to get a true picture of the performance. Your oven turned out great.

I was thinking more about the weather in Amarillo in June! I lived in Houston for a year. It was ungodly hot there. I wouldn't want to be anywhere near a WFO for about 5 months out of the year there.

450 two days after a fire is really good heat retention.

just a normal summer, for a change. We are at 3700 ft elevation here so low humidity and cool nights and hot days, but always a breeze or windy as heck. It has actually rained a little and is usually mid 90s for high and high 60s for lows. So not anything like south texas.

Boy oh boy are you right about that.You couldn't teach me anything when I was 18 but now that I'm closing in on 50 I learn something everyday and my old man seems a lot smarter know than he was then.Keep us posted on your landscaping
or build another oven or something,it would be a shame to see this thread die.

How about a link to the Harley to oven post. That sounds right up my alley. I could not find it on a quick search .
