Most importantly, she made it home.  I have no nerves or fingernails left.  I forgot to put cardboard under the ratchet straps where they could rub the concrete base.  I fixed this at mile 80.   People passed me all day long.  I watched them in the side mirror, maybe one out of ten looked twice.  At some point near mile 100 of the total 200 mile trip, somebody pulled up beside me with a sign that they were holding up.  The sign had WTF? written on it.  I grabbed a piece of paper and wrote "No WTF?, WFO.", and held it up so they could read it.  Ahh, only so mutch time for fun.

I LOL'd @ No WTF- WFO.  They probably were like "Huh? 2xWTF!?"

congrats on making it home!
I'd rather eat one good meal a day than 3 squares of garbage.

Glad you got here home in one piece. I'll start a new thread with pictures of the event last Saturday.

This has been one of my favorite threads. Has been great to follow the journey. I have such a jones for a WFO. Sigh...someday.

"No WTF- WFO" T-shirt's please!

Congrats to all. Tom for building it, Gene for getting home and everyone that was fortunate enough to break in the oven that night.

Awesome to see it come to completion. Looks like all had a great time and you ended up with quite the oven.

To clean smoke stains, take a tsp of laundry detergent and a tsp of bleach and mix it with about a quart of water in a spray bottle.  Use another spray bottle of plain water to wet the surface, then spray the cleaner on.   Allow it to sit, and gently scrub if needed.   Rinse with minimal clean water and wipe down with paper towels.

Don't use the hose.

Thanks Tom.  I was cooking in a heck of a wind.  If I had the 8" flue properly attached, the oven gas/exhaust would have been taken away.  Live and learn I guess. :pizza:

So, where has it cracked, and why aren't there more pictures of pizza?

I really haven't seen any cracks.  There are some places where the mortar has retreated and shrunk, but nothing major.

I've got about 50 excuses, but none of them are good enough not to be cooking pizza more. :angel:
