Default Alan Scott "Artisan" Brick Oven

Here are pics of the Alan Scott oven we had built in TN:

http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/memb...ven-album.html


And here are the first pizzas we made in it:



The oven is 42"x42" and made of fire brick, with a chimney of red brick. You can see from the album that the cladding is refractory concrete. We insulated with vermiculite. There is a door in the back that permits the addition of vermiculite over time. The oven has three thermocouples placed in the dome and hearth. The exterior cladding is fieldstone taken from the property.

I have to check the door width and height, but it is as specified in the plans available from ovencrafters.net. I'm pretty sure the plans for this oven are also available in the book, "The Bread Builders" by Alan Scott and Dan Wing.

Ethel,

the link you provided to your pictures gave me this "This album does not have any pictures. "

But your pizza looks great. Did you follow the plans to the letter or did you make some adjustments.

Faith

So I checked the plans and the door is 20" wide and 10" tall.

That's odd. When I go to the album, it's full of pictures that the moderator has approved. This is the URL at the top of the webpage:

http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/memb...n-oven-tn.html

Am I doing something wrong? I'm new to this forum and likely to be missing something.

We followed the plans to the letter, because with my last oven, also an Alan Scott design, the mason didn't follow the plans too closely and we ended up with some functional flaws. I noticed at the beginning of the plans there is a page outlining all the common mistakes that are made when building one of these. We made more than a few.

I'm in Mooresville, which is about 30 miles north of Charlotte. Our oven is a weekend property in Eastern Tennessee (Smokey Mtns.)

Maybe some knowledgeable person will come along and advise us about the album.

Thumbs up Re: Alan Scott "Artisan" Brick Oven

I like the way you put a whimsical face on and over it. Looks great to me. I must say I'm a bit envious of its setting also.

I don't see your album on your profile page (where it should be seen), but do see it using your link....:reallypuzzled:

I just made an album to see why.

I set it to public or everyone not private.

Edit: I can see my pics, can anyone else?
