  • Question from Washington

    Hi Everyone, I am new to wood fired pizza ovens and am getting ready to build one. I have been doing quite a bit of research and have a question that I cant find an answer to anywhere. I am an industrial sheet metal worker and could fabricate the dome out of 1/4" welded plate. Would this work instead of using bricks or refractory cement? My thought is to build the dome and opening out of this and then build a heavy steel box around the dome and pour it full of refractory cement and then put a steel top welded to the sides on it. I am looking at about a 32" dia oven and the floor would be fire brick. The whole thing will be sitting on a rolling platform. I have not seen anything with a metal liner in it anywhere, we work in big paper machine burners that are built similar to this and was thinking that if it would work I would prefer to do it like that. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks

    We don't get many steel oven discussions here, but, this is one of them.

    If you are thinking about building a brick oven, my advice is Here.

    I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.
