The cheap aluminum one works better than the wood, I have both.Trust me on this one. The cheapo aluminum peel is going to lead to frustration. Better to use a wood one than that, they are just as cheap.
Once you get tired of making calzones or worse with the aluminum or wood one, you will be amazed at the ease with which you are able to launch pizzas using the slotted one.
Buy the aluminum, solid one, then when you get tired of fighting it, cut it down into a turning peel.
Don't get the wood...if you want a wood one stop by my house and take it...you may have to dig a little for it though.Can't i cut holes in it and bevel them like SC did....No wait I can't do that, definitely can;t do that.
I'll get a wood one and the aluminum one. I like the idea of a wood one to put it in the oven but the aluminum one to pull it out, if I fvck up too much I'll invest in a more expensive one
Did you build an oven or buy one?The cheap aluminum one works better than the wood, I have both.

I mix semolina and ap flour 50/50, dust the peel, give it a shake to make sure the pizza slides nice and fire her in.
Inner.Who? Me or Inner. if me I'll post some tomorrow night and after the weekend. Oven doesn't look much different other than the back wall being built. We're making pizza tomorrow, so cross my fingers. I'm going to get the front arch finished on the weekend, should make a visible difference. I have the roof all figured and wih the front arch done I can brick up to it.
Still not decided on a countertop, 75% sure it will be concrete but not 100%. It's keeping me from building the inner wythe of the rear wall which also ties into the side wall. I;m thinking i might leave a ledge for the countertop and corbel the brick over it.
I hate working at home
