Thanks alot for your input. Your right about the customer service, it is excellent; all my emails were answered promptly by Michael & he also followed up with a phone call. Which oven did you purchase? Is it able to reach 800+ degrees? How is it at retaining it's thermal heat? Do you have any photos?
I bough their Middle sized oven, i think that it's called the milan or milano. I also got a cool temperature gun from wildwood when i bought the oven. All i do is point the laser at the different parts of the oven and it instantly tells me what temperature it is. I've had my oven up past 800 degrees. Actually i tried cooking at 900, but it was really fast. i burned a pizza when i walked away for a bit, but i guess i should have known better. It seems to retain the heat well, the outside is cool to the touch when its fired.
Michael even shared one of his recipes with me, and it has quickly become one of my favorites. I have a small dutch oven that can fit in the oven, and i use it to make the best pulled pork i've had in a long time. At the end of the night once i'm done cooking everything else i heat the dutch oven up in the oven, i season and brown all sides of the pork shoulder. and wrap it tightly in foil, then place it back in the dutch oven and put the dutch oven inside the wood fired oven. The oven is usually about 350-400 degrees F at this point. The next morning i get to wake up to beautiful pulled pork shoulder. This says a lot about the heat retention, as the pork is always still piping hot, many hours after the fire went out!
Don't have any picture right now, i'm kicking myself for not taking some when the weather was better.
