Default Ugly Drum Pizza Maker again.

There was some interest in my old drum pizza maker and I didn't want to take over someone elses thread so I'll repost some pics here.

Very slick. Do you have any temp issues with the high ceiling? Also, how is the heat transfer to the stone(s)? I looks like you changed up your fire brick usage, correct?

No issues with temp. Pizza browned up nice on the bottom. Yes I took the brick out and welded a plate in there and made a ring of firebrick with bearings so I could turn the pizza to cook both sides.

Do you leave the front door shut when you cook? If so, how does it work for you? Cool build and thanks for posting.

Yup door stays shut while cooking. Pizza half closest to the fire browns sooner so I made it so I can pull it out on a slide and turn it on the bricks that are supported on roller bearings. Works excellent

Do you get good oven spring out of the dough when it cooks here? I am a bit of a pizza and bread fanatic and know that some ovens when they lack a good bit of thermal mass on the top part tend to cook the bottom of the crust much faster than the top can brown. I was a baker before I came to smoking BTW and have probably spent 2000 hours or so since then researching the secret to great bread and pizza.

Are you mostly working with frozen pizza cooking on it though? I know that usually those don't require the same thermal characteristics of a homemade dough and are a good bit more forgiving.

You could have posted these on the thread I started...I wouldn't have taken any offense! I am in favor of all things pizza-related. That looks like a great set-up. A few more weekends of laying brick, and I may be asking you for advice on how to build one like yours!
