  • There is a thread on doors. Some welded, some pop riveted, cast concrete, even wood. So a search of the threads.

      Careful, I think that wood door didn't last long. I remember thinking, "beautiful door, but how do you put a wood door on a wood-fired oven?" It turns out, you don't.

      BTW Door thread is here: https://community.fornobravo.com/for...ur-door-thread

      • Hey Yeager I have a ton of left over ceramic board. How thick are you wanting to make it? Mine is 4" and holds heat great. If you stop by sometime I can show you what I did.

          I still persist with a wood door for my ovens because they look good and Italian ovens traditionally used wood. (They used to soak them in a bucket of water to help prevent charring). What you can't do with a wood door is put it in place after cooking pizza when the oven is really hot and leave it there all night. However if only used for baking or roasting at under 300 C and if the door has an insulating panel then it's fine. Wood also has the advantage of being far less conductive than metal.
          Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

          • Hey All,
            Thanks for all the suggestions on doors! I have a few ideas brewing now.

            My current adventure is electrical. I need to get everything in there and inspected so I can have it all covered up. The stucco system I am using on my oven/outdoor kitchen will have a thickness of about 5/16 inch to 1/2 inch plus my 1/2" Cement board. What type of electrical box should I use that would pair up nicely on this? Should I get the square electrical boxes that have the side fasteners and then get a 3/4" plate? Am I better to be a little proud or a little short to put my outdoor switch/outlet cover on?

            • I used a shallow surface mount box and just stuccoed around it. That keeps the whole thing sealed up, even i water seeps in around the stucco. Doesn't look too bad

              • How are you doing finishing your oven Yeager? I'm back from way too long in Europe and cranking out delicious pizzas several times a week now! We need to get together with RandyJ soon. I put together a little lcd to display the temperature as measured by the thermocouples I embedded in my oven, just have to finish it off with a acrylic front now.

                • Hi Thomas glad to see you are back. I agree we will have to plan some kind of get togather. That is a nice looking display you have there.
