Wood fired pizza oven dome build out of 2 inch steel plate
I was thinking of building a second Pizza oven , I was not planning on cooking Pizza as such because I have an existing oven that does the job well for me. What I want is a second oven that maintains a lower temperature well for cooking a range of artisan breads and desserts.
I am not good at working with bricks etc so was thinking of building the dome out of 2 inch thick steel cut and bent into arches welding all the arches together to form a dome Pompeii style oven. Of course I would add a foot or so of loose insulation.
does this sound like a mad plan or a potential winner
for a pattern
Steel expands more than bricks do so there will be more movement as it heats up. It might be easier just to use the kitchen oven.
On reflection,Yep the home oven idea is undoubtedly the best idea I even have one i plug in outside. But this is the domain of ,The Wife .
Me cave man, cook with fire .
The umbrella is an inspired idea but the cuts will need to be extremely precise especially allowing for thickness and bevel. I think it is a job for a computer and automated cutting
I have two sheets of steel only one sheet of 10 mm and one sheet of 50 mm I thought the 10mm steel would
suit making oven doors out of the walls out of 500 mm I beam. I was thinking it would have good thermal mass.
I have no idea what you mean by spall liner not sure if you are taking the micky out of me ? I certainly don't see any need for a spall liner
