Is that good?  Why? 

Should we consider the weekend of the 26th?

It is good, it means that it holds the heat.  The 26th it is.

Hopefully it'll get better once it's totally cured. I just checked mine now. Pizza party was Sat. evening and the oven is at 280 now, almost 60 hrs. later. Temps have been in the 40s and 50s here since Sat.

I am sure it will, I never got the oven over 500, just a small long fire.

I'm sure it will too.
That's what I love about these ovens. You can cook for 3 or 4 days on one firing! :chef:

Other than some detail and fenestration, it is done.  No pics as we are expecting a couple of inches of rain this evening, but I will get some if it clears out tomorrow.

I hope fenestration is not frustration.  What is it?

Ready for tile or finish coat stucco.  I left a 4" hole in stucco at the top so moisture can escape.

It is simply awesome.  See you Saturday the 27th, barring an act of nature, act of wife's or children.

That looks phenomenal, Tom.

What's the final dome height?  And the door height?

The stucco is masonry cement and sand along with a high fiber and latex loading, 2 coats.  The finish coat will be white masonry cement, marble dust, limestone dust and white sand to give a breathable but water resistant coating.

The door is 17-3/4"x9-1/4", final dome height is 15"

I probably should fire it today, but I already lit mine for a brisket and some shrimp with all the dry wood I had.

Does the foil come open again before serving, to tighten up the bark, or Carte Blanche?

I got the forklift lined out for Saturday the 26th, so let's start planning what we are going to eat.  Also, do you want me to put the finish coat on, if you plan on tiling it anytime soon, I won't.

No, I won't be tiling it anytime soon, please do the finish coat.

I'm easy on whatever types of pizza you or Craig want to fix.  Cracker/ NY whatever.  Are the Via Guy's coming?  Let them bring some of what they serve to cook if they will.

Zane of 313 is in, I will fire my oven to 550 for Detroit style and maybe a thincrust. I will also make a batch (4) of caputo, the rest is up to you and Craig. Figure out toppings and we are GTG.

If anyone else wants to come drop me a PM, the more the merrier as far as I am concerned.

I may be fishing right before. There is a good chance I will not be able to make any dough.
