First Fire in the Pizza Oven

Was able to light a small fire in the pizza oven yesterday afternoon after the last piece of chimney pipe arrived from UPS. Here's a picture of the oven with the chimney in place.

Here's a shot of the first fire. I still have a lot of work to do before any fires large enough to cook with can be made. You're supposed to cure the oven concrete with successively larger fires so wanted to get started.

I wanted to go ahead with a couple of small fires before adding the external fiberglass insulation blankets in case I get a crack- much easier to see and repair this way.

Making progress, maybe there will be pizza by labor day!
