Thanks all. I am very pleased with oven, and my neighbors even more so. Can't wait to finish it wih the cap (hopefully today).
You are correct in that this pie was not cooked at 1000 degrees, I incinerated that one. They were cooking very fast but the crust was not as crisp as I like. This one was probably closer to 650 or so. I am learning as I go. I have an infrared/laser thermometer and am measuring floor and ceiling.
I am thinking optimal is around 700 degrees?
Good eye with the Yuengling. I bring it to Canada cause I can't get it here.
