Neapolitan in Four Grand Mere 700 C Raised
« on: October 23, 2012, 09:19:25 PM »
Good evening everyone,

I know there has been quite a few question on heating the floor on a Four Grand Mere Raised dome option. So I chopped some wood last night, got the oven going and most importantly managed to take some pictures.
First of all the basic information, the oven is the FGM 700 C Raised. I started the oven cold, about 60 F and fired the oven for about 1,5 hours. The wood was a little damp from the recent rain, I know shame on me, so it took a little longer than usual.
Then I spread the embers over the entire floor for about 30 minutes, picture bellow. I then moved the fire to the side and gave the oven about 20 minutes keeping a nice fire to the side, second picture bellow.
Started cooking the pizza with the floor at about 70 F and the dome right around 850 F while keeping a good flame.
Pies cooked in about 2 minutes, I know not the standard 90 seconds, and I almost burned them taking pictures  :-D

They certainly look good from here! I also love the pics of the flames inside the oven...kind of mesmerizing.

Antoine,

Did you mean the floor at 700 degrees F rather than 70 degrees F?

Here is another picture show how well the fire travels across the dome rather than out and up the chimney.

Looks great Antoine.  Do you notice any significant difference in baking NP between the raised and non-raised dome?  Not so much in the heat up, but that actual impact on the top and bottom of the pizza while cooking.

The difference is very slight. The pizza cooks just as well, top and bottom, with either oven, but if I want to have a nice colored top, personal preference, I tend to keep a bigger flame in the raised option.
Also I personally like the raised option because I see better inside the oven.
