20 lbs is a standard tank? Mine is 4.5 lbs. I'd estimate actual run time at about 10-15 hours. That's usually about 4-5 nights of baking pizzas.

I've never heard of a 4.5 pound propane tank. Your typical gas grill propane tank (pictured below) is 20 pounds.

EDIT: Never mind, Google is your friend. A 4.5 pound tanks holds 1 gallon of propane. A typical 20 pound propane tank holds about 4.7 gallons.

I'll frame the whole thing like this:

I built an actual 42" oven in my backyard. Between getting dry wood, heat up time, and weather related issues, the outdoor oven is a production. I couldn't just "heat up the oven" after work. That whole thing takes a good bit of time.

The 2 Stone has allowed me to experiment every day if I want. I get out of work and crank it up. BAM! I'm eating dinner with my wife at 7pm. This winter I've cooked 3-4 times a week in my garage. It's literally 0 degrees outside with snow up to the back of my knees and I'm cooking pies in a minute and half at 850 in less than a half an hour. It will easily do 900+.

If you have the money it is the best value out there.

A small bottle at 800-850 batting the cold is good for about 6 cooks. Much depends on how high you're going. If you're in the high range I'd say there's no way it goes 10 hours.

Willard,

First off, thank you for the phenomenal discount.  I'm sure many members look forward to using the 2stone for the pizza making needs!  Very generous of you to provide such a drastic discount!

Second, I wanted to check, how long is the discount good for?  I'm in the process of handing my woodfired mobile oven to one of my partners as I get ready to open a restaurant... because of the risk involved in opening up a restaurant, I'm unlikely able to convince the wife to let me buy any new toys for the next few months... is this something you think you would provide long term to forum members, or will I just be out of luck later on when I want to get one of these for my home?

Thanks again!

I'm liking that pedal idea. Gonna have to steal that one. Now I just have to find a "foot print gas pedal" version  :-D

Being a guy that builds and modifies everything i need (necessity being the mother of all invention!) I love to see when some one not only makes a mod that kicks ass but also wants to do something like put an old van-foot gas pedal on it! Good stuff. It's good to see a deal like this and even better to see members taking advantage. I love this place!
I love making WF pizza! http://www.rivercitywoodfire.com

Gee, I have some questions.  What kind of cardboard was that shipping package?  How many stones were broken?  Was the shaft bent? :-D

When you make a pie that looks better than Dylan's then we'll talk you can talk to Dylan.  (I've got some, um, learning to do.)

I couldn't believe that Willard shipped it in a custom plywood crate! No broken stones, no bent pieces, it's a work of art. Heavy gauge stainless steel, all welded construction, stainless steel hardware on the pieces that are bolted together, I'm very impressed with the workmanship.

I fired it up briefly last night (no pizza) and the stone was up to about 600 degrees F. in about 20 minutes. I'm going to attempt a couple of pizzas tonight when I get home from work.

Anticipating seeing those pizzas. That's an impressive looking oven in construction.

Congrats!
Did you do anything to add thermal mass to the top? And did you happen to take a photo of that? :)

I paid extra for the second stone up top since only one was included in the special pricing. I might order the thermal blanket that I found on amazon.com but I'm not sure it needs it... the top of the oven was not very hot, so I don't think there was much heat loss.

Steve, you've got the roof of the Inferno on sideways. Turn it a quarter turn clockwise and it should seat properly.

Also, 600 degrees in 20 minutes doesn't seem right. With the gas full bore, you should hit 800F in 10-12 minutes.

I was having issues with the burner blowing itself out with the gas turned up high. I adjusted the burner vent and it's a little better (more blue and less yellow flames), but it still wants to blow out with the gas cranked high. I'm going to check the burner holes to make sure they're all reamed out properly.

Maybe you just have to turn it down a bit, I'm not sure.  You might give Willard a call.  My sense is that he is pretty particular about these setups, so I suspect something is amiss other than turn down the dial.

In my experience with these kinds of burners, a few things come to mind.  First if the flame output is obstructed, it can blow itself out.  Also, if there isn't enough air (or too much air eg. wind) feeding the flame it may go out.  I'm not talking about the burner vent, which is also an air intake, but just having unchoked free flowing air surrounding the circular burner is important.  Lastly, if you are running unregulated with high PSI in the line, that could cause a problem.

Ok, scratch the burner issues. I readjusted the air mix and didn't have any problems with the flame. Stone was up to 750 degrees F. in 20 minutes. Not sure what I was doing wrong last night, but it's fine now.

Here's my first attempt at Neapolitan pizza using TXCraig's recipe (Caputo @ 62.5% hydration, 3 day cold ferment) on my brand new 2stone. I made two Margheritas and one pepperoni (Ezzo). All three pizzas tasted AMAZING!!

Stone temperature was 750 degrees F., cooking time was approximately 120 seconds.
