Pizza Party users, fire location?
« on: September 14, 2014, 01:25:16 PM »
Been using the PP for 14 weeks or so. Have always located the baking fire on the left side,  cause I am right handed. Yesterday I decided to try the fire at the back wall. I figured it would be easier to cook 2 pies if they were both at the front of the oven.
I think that next bake I will leave the heat deflector out, since the distance from the fire to the pie is increased with fire in back.
I believe I have seen a video on the PP Web site of someone else doing this.
How about PP users here?  Where have you placed your fire?

Mark
P.S.

I did find that the fire did not travel over the pie as easily as when at the side.  Must be the design of the ceiling.

The wall holding back the coals maybe screwing up your airflow with the fire at the back.
Pizza is not bread.

Have used the deflector with fire on side, but next bake, no deflector with fire again in back.

With the fire on the side and the diverter in use the fire still have a nice easy path for clean fresh air.  With it at the back I agree it's likely a little starved leading to the lack of flame.

hi Mark, since i bought the pizza oven, i use it about 2 times a week, i tried to move the fire in various positions but my favorite position is on the left, because i can make large pizzas by the big pizza peel

Wolver. Used the back wall for fire placement 2x
Made an adjustment in the fire diverter.

the management of the fire, to the right or left is easier,probably cooks better looking interior design
I tried without separating flame, but i prefer use to cook pizza or roast, the pizza is cooked better. Mark, prefer with or without separating flame?

I continue to use the separator,  I have modified it as can be seen in my recent post, video.

I tried to put the fire in the left corner is very comfortable for cook 2 pizzas at the same time,
Very interesting placement for 2 pizzas :)

compliments Mark for video and your pizzas  :drool:
Many customers use the "spartifiamma" allows you to better manage the pizza and allows uniform cooking.
today try again the position fire in the corner to cook 2 pizzas at same time, i have ask to more customer and more use this method but the majority is put the fire to the left or right side and use long pizza peel for pizza al metro
