Default Iron Oven Dome!

Hi all,

I was thinking of building an oven with a floor made from fire bricks and a dome made from metal!

PLease i would like your input on this idea, what do you think?

- Has anyone tried it before? Would it work?

- Will i get the desierd heat for pizza cooking?

- Will it heat faster, and retain heat?

- How thick should the dome insulation layer be?

- How thick should the metal be? is 5mm enough?

- If you make pizza in a brick oven vs. a brick floor with a metal dome, will they both taste the same?

- Do you need to insulate the vent? will that help retain heat in the oven, or it dosent matter?

thanks,

southpaw

I don't think the metal would retain enough heat.
