    Re: Down Under Brick Dome Build

    Gudday bricky and Laurentius
    Welcome back from your trip brickie!
    It's emphasized to all newbies on insulation you have heard it before "cooked pizza first night, closed up the oven, baked all next day in a snow storm and still had 100 F in the oven 2 days later. They complete there ovens and cure them the emphasis again is to build the oven up over time to gain to that max temp.
    Little is said about a short firing at all. I thought it timely that I mention this and your definitly right Laurentuis it is all about knowing your oven and learning to manage it.... Man taming flame
    There has been a link posted that I followed to an e book excerpt that stated that the best way to use a wood fired oven was to start at pizza temps and cook to the cooling oven. I wonder if that was a less insulated design than the forno?

      Hi Dave,

      I agree that is one of the great features of a WFO, and when I first built mine, that was the way I ultilized it. Now, I very seldom do pizza, I love baking bread and cooking and you learn quickly that bread doesn't function on your timetable. I feel the faster a newbie learn heat management, they will enjoy using the oven and will use it more often. Waiting for a fully saturated well insulated oven to cool down is a B%$#*, especially when you're on your family's schedule and not your own, and one day, that "Why you get so hot in the first place?" sinks in.

        Im sure everyone utilizes the heat in this way with a cooling oven but that doesnt mean you cant fire her up just to do a roast, Ill be firing mine up tomorrow for just that reason.
