Next step was to build square, ceramic chimney which is supported on two steel angles. Chimney is 20cm x 20cm. On the internet I found old bricks from demolition which look awesome. I have also bought 30mm thick ceramic blanket and 30mm thick insulation board which was not easy to install since I had already builded walls :) whole was covered with expanded clay http://www.leca.com/.

I didn't feel strong with building the roof that's why I got some help from Mr. Mietek :) He poured screws (Phi 10mm) into the concrete and on this screws we've placed big rafters. Then roof foil insulation and tiles.

thanks guys!
We got the oven moved into the space yesterday.  that thing is heavy!  I remember when Craig moved his oven into the garage we were all coming up with ideas to put it in place.  We tried several different ways to move it, and they almost all didn't work.  finally coaxed it into position.  it faces the front door of the food hall.  We hope the flames will be inviting.  we have a few other pics on instagram @stradadinapoli

In the Chicago land area 5star is where people go for stones, they also sell on eBay with a 100% rating.  These are not OEM but people who have used them think they work well.

Personally, and it's just me, the cracks drive me nuts, especially with the little raised lip that creates issues sliding in and removing, plus cleanup scrapings go in the cracks.  I always think that somehow my pizza crust will suffer and won't cook right when over the crack...so I worry about it.  I'm stressed out enough.


Thanks so much for telling me where people in Chicago land go to get their stones.

I already purchased a new stone from the link at Reply 17 https://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=48976.msg492194#msg492194 and am waiting for it.

I am like you that the crack drives me nuts.  I did snag the metal peel on the crack different times, and had some problems turning pies.  I thought the peel ripped the bottom crust, but that didn't happen.  I didn't think about cleanup scrapings going into the crack.  Lol, about being stressed out enough.  That is me too.  There are enough problems with all of the pies going in and out of the oven decks and making sure they are okay.

Great pie!  What is your Grande mix?

Liking that cheesy little cruncher!

It was soon good, I wanna make a full size maybe even extra cheese.

bacon on pizza just seems wrong but you're starting to convince me otherwise. *love* the meatball/pepperoni bake!

Bacon is great with anything!  Thanks, that was a good bake for me =)
Hi Simone.

I live in Europe, but I want to set it up in South East Asia (I will tell you more exact location in PM).

So what is the problem with using regular charcoal? Does it get too hot? I guess there might be a problem with the oven needing more oxygen. In any case, I definitely do not want to use regular wood.

Anyway, these briquettes are made from coal that comes from 100% coconut husks. They are food grade and do not leave smoke  Not sure if they are 27 Joule per KG or if they are 27 MJ per Kilo. I get very confused by caloric measurements. In any case they hold less energy than regular coal.
