Bake of the evening.
« on: September 23, 2012, 02:39:50 PM »
Hi Guys,

Here are pictures of todays bake. As you see, I have gotten myself a termometer, AND I used a stopwatch today.
I tried 2 different setups in the oven, and though setup 2 with heat only in side of oven is easy to control, it takes too much time, so the bottom gets too crisp I think.

Thanks for making me hungry! I would eat either, like 2nd best from looks, the cheese melted great, nice color.

"with heat only in side of oven is easy to control" you do mean "on one side..don't you? I kept looking for an OUTSIDE heat source! ???

The pies look good, but it really does look like the oven is struggling with top heat.  The bottom is nicely cooked, and the side heat from the coal bed looks like it is doing it's job, maybe even too well.  Between the large door leaking any heat that stays in the oven, the top vent allowing all the heat to exit, and the dome height, I really think you are going to have to modify something in the setup to go any farther.  I wonder what type of result you would get with the fire at the back and a raised cooking floor.  This would keep the flame in the oven as long as possible and would bring the top of the pizza closer to the flame.

Try doming it for a few seconds and see what that does for you

Looks really good.  I would eat that any day of the week.

What about just blocking off the top vent?

domming it is a good suggestion.
