    It is a beautiful day up here, T-shirt weather, leaves falling. I used hard maple and oak pieces. I had the thermometer pegged pretty well until the last pizzas went in. Probably close to 800::F. The crust was really nicely done on the bottom too. I raked out the coals and soaked the bricks with heat before putting them in. Nothing fancy for pizzas today as it was a last minute thought.

    I noticed you are using an air temp thermo. have you ever checked the floor temp with a infra red?? I try to get 800 plus on the infra red on the floor, pegs it on the dome.

    No, my infra red only goes to 500ish. I'm learning to rake the coals out more to soak the bricks for better floor heating. I actually don't like the crust too dark on the bottom. Here is the bottom
    crust shot. Agreed on the dome, insane heat up there.

    Ah, I was more or less putting up firing pics, the pizza ones just fell in there. You were warned. ;) I actually skipped supper and feel quite disgusting still for eating at least a pie and a half myself. I neeed Tums now. I could not help eating those pies right out of the oven. Little extra garlic in the sauce too.
