Wow!
Great looking set up. I love the base. I am a firm believer in the "use-what-you-got" theory. If you aren't going to use your half a giant steel ball for your dome oven project, when the hell ARE you going to use it! And to fill it with insulation is genious. I bet that will be the best insulated floor in FB history.
Congrads.
I know where antelope is. You are almost in the neighborhood!

After letting the oven cure for a week with 2 halogen work lights on, we
lit our first fire. It was only going to be a small one at first, but ended up
being the mother of all fires. since we weren't planning on cooking,
some one ran down to papa Murphy's so we could se how it cooked.

Looking good! You might think about an extension to that flue: code wants it two feet above any structure within ten feet.

here are some pics from the weekend, we fit the top of the ball
over the door and chimney before putting on the insulation.
the last pic is for the building code police
we had a big day Saturday, cooking about 30 pizzas
started the fire at 10:00 am and cooked until 8:00 at night.
cant wait to do it again next weekend

Very impressed with your metal skills and cool creative oven. Where did the giant steel ball come from? Did you make it?
