Re: The Wood-fired Oven Thread


I made the same mistake, thus my door is also 2 piece. It is a skeleton of Heatstop/perlite at 1/1 infilled with perlite/portland at 8/1 and covered with Heatstop/perlite at maybe 1/3, I don't remember. (the picture of the skeleton is an earlier door that I dropped, just to show the method). Each side weighs about 6 pounds, and the exterior is acid washed brown.

It works well, but still gets hot enough that I wear regular leather gloves to remove it or replace it.

Note also that the center was cut at an angle to help hold the heat in.

CJ...it's like seeing a radio DJ...not the voice I was expecting.

I'll probably do sheetmetal door initially which will probably end up being long time short term. Does the rebar get hot?

I think I'm going to go the same route next time I need a door-an insulated SS panel with stand offs to a wooden exterior panel. That is, unless I can find a forge to cast one for me...those are the best looking IMO.

Isn't that what you have now?

There are a few pretty good metal guys around, I'll probably go the plate steel with welded handles, could do that for $20, but I may talk to a smith who did some incredible andirons for a fireplace I did and see what he could do. Actually come to think of it I know a welder who likes to do ornate work that was thinking of making an oven...maybe some bartering is in order

No,my wooden door is in SC with the oven. The new oven on the other page is a single piece of uninsulated metal with a glass window.

And no, the rebar didn't get too hot . I grabbed it with bare hands.

Yeah, that was the last oven door. Worked very well too...not a sign of charring or anything.

That's a good idea. Plus, I'm thinking that type of pan won't leach as much heat out of the hearth like a cast iron pan does.

Re: The Wood-fired Oven Thread


I don't think I have ever used my cast iron in the oven, no, I have, for baked beans. Other than that it is always regular steel cake or cookie pans.

Stonecutter, check your pizzamaking.com messages and plan on being there. It is an experience worth the effort and expense (which is minimal other than the airfare, you can sleep there or at either of my bros who live within a few miles).

Yeah, but this is PIZZA. And not just pizza, but the best pizza in the world, along with the best whiskey and wines. This is the Texas Pizza Summit IV.

OK, it is a bunch of pizza nerds in a garage/driveway in Houston, but it really does constitute the best of all three that I have ever had, and people travel from all over the US to attend.

Here is last year's:
