I'm just glad to see the oven made it home in one piece.

You did your part. I forgot to thank you for that in my post. I apologize.

John, actually only 36" (old style - not even a flat screen)   :(   I'm trying to compensate with a big oven...

Congrats and may you have more fun making pizzas!
 :)

Craig,
Not to rain on the parade,will you put up some carbon monoxide detectors?I read a horrible story about a retired police officer,working on a gas powered generator in his garage that was attached to the house.He and and his wife both passed out from the gas and died from it.The fumes built up inside the house from the garage,and killed them both.

I dont know if your wfo will put out noxious gasses like a gas engine would,but do be sure you all will be safe,even if you run a vent outside.

Be safe!

Thanks for the concern Bill. It's actually yet another thing I had not thought about. My garage is not attached, so I don't think it too much of a concern for people in the house. Also, in addition to the massive vent (10") the oven will have, I have multiple exhausts already in the garage to try to keep things a little cooler in the summer.

Craig, chicken parm,  I have had my homebuilt inside my house,  permitted by the town btw, running for about 5 years now.  I have co detectors in that room  and two in the main house.  They have never gone off.  I rarely set off a smoke detector about 10 feet from the oven when I am getting a draft going.  Craig,  is the 10" pipe what was recommended?  Mine is a 7 and drafts great.  BTW congrats on that oven! -marc

Thanks, Marc.

definately going to be the best garage mounted pizza oven ever! 
did you ever make the last 6" move? i was thinking a couple of floor jacks might get it done.

Thank you. No, I have not yet. I don't think it will be a big deal though. I have a 5K hand pallet jack at the office. I'll build what is essentially going to be a very thick pallet to fit between the bottom of the oven and the hand jack, so I can lift it an inch or so and roll it the last few inches.

Are you going to furnish it and turn it into Craig's house of pie? :)

No. Why? It's dripping with ambiance as it is.

I meant with a saw-horse bar and some lawn chairs. ;)

I'd love to, but it hardly seems practical. You live in TX. Just how often would I be able to use it?

Great to read about that! Good idea to take all the precautions and put your mind at ease.

Hey Craig....

With proper ventilation and air draw... you should be fine.  I mean... Restaurants do it all the time!

there are a couple of set ups I really like... some of my customers have sent me pics.

look for Mike and Susan Stansbury... &  Wendall Pierce...  great indoor set ups.  http://fgpizza.com/store/page11.html

When I grow up... I want a room like Wendall Pierce.   ;D
