Wood Burning Fire And Pizza Oven


Thanks for all the info on my last posting. Now after al this the homowner want it a wood burning fireplace,above pizza oven,plus a mantle above it and to finish it off flat scrren tv lol lol.
*Whats is the best way to draw the smoke up from the woodburning fireplace,1. cast iron sitting on top of the firebrick? 2..Taper it in with concrete? My pizza oven is going to have firebrick all round and firebrick on edge on the celing in a dome shape ,parged around it with 8 inches of concrete sand around the dome for more insulation. he doent want to spend $$$$ on them domes you can by pre-made. and sketches or pictures of work you think my be better than my idea is greatly appreciated. Im passionate about my work and want to make it look good and build it once. The full with of the fire face with stone is 6ftx14 feet high.

joe

Sounds like a poor design to me. Have him do some research on wood fired ovens if he want's to take part in the design of it.

I'm sure you can build something with the fire UNDER the oven.

Actually I saw some pics of ovens fired from below, but the "chimney/exhaust" from the fire encircled the oven, it was a european set up and probably 1/2 a century old, that did nothing but stay fired, and cook tasty things...

Not the sort of setup you would want on your patio.

Sounds more like a masonry heater.

People have been cooking this way for thousands of years. Check out forno bravo, they are a good online WFO resource.

I have rebuilt dozens of those in early homes....they are called beehive ovens. They still had a flue of it's own and the fire was burned inside them. The biggest difference between how a beehive oven and pizza are used is that the beehive wasn't usually used with a live fire in them while baking or cooking. That doesn't mean you couldn't though.

Re: Wood Burning Fire And Pizza Oven


Well, WFO's need to be kept at 700*-900* to cook pizzas...300*-450* for bread baking.

You will not get the oven that hot without a fire inside it....ever.

Re: Wood Burning Fire And Pizza Oven


He wants a white oven, which works fine for everything except pizza. If he wants a pizza oven, it will be a black oven. What the customer wants and what the customer can have are not always the same thing. You need to find out what he wants to bake in the oven and proceed from there.

Re: Wood Burning Fire And Pizza Oven


A guy I met on the weekend has a contra flow masonry heater with a white oven. Cooks pizza @ 800* in under 2 minutes. But of course the oven is ABOVE the heater. Below the heater or fireplace would just be weird and useless.

Most people want to be able to sit around a fireplace and not have to look UP at the flames. The HO's design is bad, totally opposite to how it should be both aesthetically and functionally
