Default Dover, Pa 42" Pompeii


I'd like to thank this forum for all the support, and
Encouragement. This has been a great fun project.
If your thinking about trying one, do it! It looks finished
but I gotta make bottom door and some finish pointing.
Starting curing fires tonight. Can't wait to taste that first
Pizza...

I'm starting tonight Wed, Thursday Friday, Saturday threw day.
Hope to cook Saturday night. I don't plan
on going super hot either. Planning on 200,300,400
500 on Saturday! I don't need a pizza in 60 seconds.
I can wait 5 minutes or longer!

Bubb,

Start with a bag of charcoal, easy to control temp, easy to spread around, then cook something as well. This will get your oven in the mid 200 range. Fires are more problematic in controlling temps 300 quickly becomes 700 with on piece of wood.

How big of the pile of charcoal do you use
to start with? Did you count out brigkets?
