I recently acquired a used Blodgett 1048 for my small, artisan bread bakery. I had been using the same model for the past year in my town's local pizza shop and am now branching out into my own space, however, (of course) there's been some issues getting it up and running. My boyfriend and I successfully converted the oven to LP and got the pilot lit, but the burners seem to be igniting unevenly. Any ideas? We're going to take them out tonight and clean them with some pressurized air.
I had't put the decks in yet since I figured we'd be working on the oven a bit, and that's my second question. The oven came with two large aluminum? decks and two new stones, the manual isn't very clear so I'm wondering if some can tell me: are these "aluminum" decks insulation and the stones go on top of them? I feel silly asking this, but I'm just learning as I go.
Any tips/advice appreciated!
Happy Baking/Pizza Making....
