Pizza Party users, fire location?
« on: Yesterday at 01:25:16 PM »
Been using the PP for 14 weeks or so. Have always located the baking fire on the left side,  cause I am right handed. Yesterday I decided to try the fire at the back wall. I figured it would be easier to cook 2 pies if they were both at the front of the oven.
I think that next bake I will leave the heat deflector out, since the distance from the fire to the pie is increased with fire in back.
I believe I have seen a video on the PP Web site of someone else doing this.
How about PP users here?  Where have you placed your fire?

P.S.

I did find that the fire did not travel over the pie as easily as when at the side.  Must be the design of the ceiling.

The wall holding back the coals maybe screwing up your airflow with the fire at the back.
Pizza is not bread.

Have used the deflector with fire on side, but next bake, no deflector with fire again in back.

With the fire on the side and the diverter in use the fire still have a nice easy path for clean fresh air.  With it at the back I agree it's likely a little starved leading to the lack of flame.
