Default chiminey . door

If the door is installed before the chiminey . how would the oven get a draft if the door is closed?

It doesn't - the door is there to retain the existing heat.

Thumbs up Re: chiminey . door

If you have the door closed to keep the heat in, then you will obviously have no fire. Good for smoking your food though.
Put the door on the wrong side of your chimney and you will not be able to keep the heat within your dome!

Essentially two ways to cook with the oven. Door stays open for cooking with the fire going (ie pizza). Once the fire burns out or is removed, the door is used to retain the heat for hearth style cooking (ie, bread, roasts, etc)

Ok to answer your question if you need to control burn an adjustable vent can be added to the door at bottom to slow down air flow to reduce burn. This is accdording to FB build instructions.

The only time I could imagine wanting to do this is for smoking.

I always use the damper in the door when cooking.....I never thought about it but I always put my door back on when cooking pizzas too! Guess I didn't know any better??

When roasting I will also dial back the chimney damper for fire control and wood conservation and smoking too.

Are most Pizzas cooked without a door?
DUH...better try that for more flames!

still, I think the door allows me to keep the oven hotter when I want.....less cold air rushing in unabated?

still crazy after all these years.....

Well, put me in for a third way as I'm always right between these two....

....door on oven, fire burning inside. Hotter for pizza, cooler for the roasting!

Make up your mind SJ. Hotter or cooler? Pizza with the door out for me. I've yet to try cooking anything else with the fire burning. Any recommendations for a frist try?
