Poor man's Ember Shield
« on: April 12, 2013, 05:43:20 PM »
I made this version of Omid's ember shield from a $12 piece of iron lintel from Home Depot. My son loves cutting metal!

Cutting an angle off the corners allows it to fit in nice and snugly.

I'll let you know how it works!

Nice job.  I've always been curiousb if it is necessary or not.  What differences should one see when using an ember shield?

Chau,

You gotta understand --- I need all the help I can get! Anything I can do to help me work in harmony with beast is bound to help. You, Craig, John DlaV, etc etc etc do not seem to need it. The puzzling thing to me is whyOmid of all people has one. For 12 bucks I thought it would be worth fining out.

It looks like it could promote more even baking but I would assume that the oven would have to be fully saturated.   I don't always saturate mine bc I only bake a few NP pies at a time.
