 dried he oven out and did a test bake. oven dome cracked, and got  into the 180 degree range on the outside top. sides stayed cool to touch. the front top vent didn't work that well lot of smoke out of the front. it has potential as it dries more i think it will cook better.

insulating with a coat of stucco over it. the cracks are letting heat out . i don't know if they can be repaired.if so it needs insulation and a stucco coat.

Thanks, Larry, for the information.  Like others have said, those are great looking pies.  On a future bake could you give us an upskirt? I'd like to see how well the floor is retaining the heat.
