hi James - where about are you in NZ? Good to see someone else from around here building a pizza oven! ...... and once it's done I'd love to come to your restaurant and taste it's produce - any wood-fired pizza should be better than the ones we get out of the fast food chains here!

good luck!
John

The chimney goes over the entry opening, at the top of the door to the "igloo". We've heard from someone who put the opening at the top of the dome: it burns wood like a locomotive, and never really gets hot enough for pizza.

Exactly. You can make it look like the chimney comes out the middle by bringing your chimney pipe back, and over the oven, from the vent above the door opening.
