Homemade Baking Door for my oven
« on: July 26, 2015, 01:46:05 PM »
Just wanted to post some pics of my prototype and then then the actual baking door I made for my oven. I use this baking door after the last pizza has been cooked to help retain the heat for my attempts at baking the next day. I made had an old gas fireplace insert that i took apart and used the insulation in this baking door.  I made a second adjustable burn door to help control the smoke (we live on top of a hill and is always very windy) and the amount of air that goes into the oven. I'll post some of those as well in a separate post.  You can see the temp difference of the inside and outside of the door in the two photos. Hope this gives someone an idea..

Did You put insulation material in that big box like part that fits in the oven mouth?

Yes, when I remodeled the outdoor kitchen and made the pizza oven I took out a gas fireplace insert. Since we were throwing this away we just took the insulation out of the fireplace and used it in the oven door. I have no idea what kind it is just thought that if it was engineered to keep a house from burning down it would work for this application...Works great.
