Default yo, that dome is HOT

Has anyone noticed that the dome clearing--the soot burning off and the bricks getting white hot--has a smell? It's not like any other part of the fire smell, but when it happens, it sets off my internal timer that tells me 45 minutes to pizza!

Sorry - there is no way I am sticking my head into the oven to see if there is a smell.

yea, I know, It's officially arm hair and eyebrow makeover season.

Really though, it comes out of the chimney, and it's the signal to get my prep in order!

Being the old steam train buff from my youth that I am, the smell reminds me of all the old trains that I used to enjoy watching.

It is the "creosote' smell from the burning off of the soot layer.

yea. I think it smells like diesel fuel or a house fire. Which might be why it freaked me out the first couple of times I noticed it. Now---ahhh. I am sickly addicted to the whole WFO aroma. And the food, of course. But really, just the smell of some WFO action makes me so happy.

The "creosote" smell will go away very quickly and indicates you have reached a high enough temperature to burn the oven "white".
