Just a little humor here, but it seems that it works for him.




Didn't know where to post this, mods please advise.

Enjoy!

What that shows is the importance of a (1) balanced oven, (2) conductive heat transfer through the deck, and (3) the sheer power of the IR from a rolling flame in the dome - none of which he has.

He's at 90 seconds at 1600F. My typical bake time (deck 850F, walls 950F) is about 45-50 seconds. If I up that to 1000F, I can get the time down to about 35 seconds.

Wow!  Does yours get done all the way through in that short a time?

And do you hack yours with a cleaver?  OK, never mind that last question ...  ;D

Absolutely. 45-50 seconds is my sweet spot.

I think he said he let the temp get down to 800 or so for the bake but definitely needs some tweaking to get the desired result

My brother has a forge and a WFO, although it's unlike most of the WFOs I see from members here. Anyway, I don't believe he uses them interchangeably :)
