Default Temperatures - for the record

I wanted to document my temps, when I get asked, I never remember all the numbers.

Saturday at 6:30 PM after the fire; hearth=900 deg.
Saturday at 8:00 PM after pizzas; hearth=555 deg.
Sunday at 9:00 AM hearth=447 deg. - cooked a coffee cake
Sunday at 4:30 PM hearth=374 deg. - cooked coconut shrimp
Monday at 6:30 AM hearth=288 deg.
Monday at 4:45 PM hearth=244 deg.
Tuesday at 4:45 PM hearth=170 deg.

As you can tell, we didn't do much cooking, but the oven appears to be retaining heat fairly well (I think).

Very nice Les. Thanks, that's a good record. We should all do more Tuscan white beans. :-)

Les,

That's very close to my oven's retained heat loss. Amazing how similar our ovens can be.

Very much like mine as well...I have about an extra inch of mass in the dome. Do you guys have any extra mass in the dome?


Be warned, you can hurt yourself trying to use all that heat...no way a family of four can eat all the food that will cook in a single firing...even if you eat it all week!

No extra mass on mine. I don't have a drop of mortar on the outside of my dome. Just lots of insulation .

I probably added around 1/2 inch of mortar. I recall your's being extreamly clean Ken - was a shame to cover it up.

I always have the inside of the dome to enjoy! (that's the best part anyway)

But how cold was it outside? The outside air temp will be a factor in the oven cooling as well....

Only to a degree. The small part of the oven that sees the colder outside temperature is the oven opening, which is small. The main volume of the oven is well insulated -- and all the insulation that keeps the heat inside, also keeps the cold outside.
