So that last pizza was not quite crispy because I made it on the stone and put the cold stone in the oven/smoker. I needed to come up with a way to crisp it up. I took an aluminum strainer and cut the handle off to make a pizza screen. This time the stone went in and pre heated. Quite possibly the best pizza I've eaten. I had a back up plan though of wine &garlic marinated chicken.

Doing up some brown sugar pork spare ribs while I cut a maple that got damaged in the ice storm. I have to move it out of my neighbors yard and try to get into my yard. This is almost like work.

Got that maple wood split and stacked today. I have a pile of oak I split too while I was at it, but didn't get it stacked yet.

I like the build, my smokehouse seems like it will never get finished are you in the same boat.  It is looking good.

I'm waiting on a friend to build my steel door yet, but I've just been using bricks as a door for now. Other than that I'm done.

Got the oak put up this afternoon. The two on the left are maple and the oak is on the right. A boy at work has a hickory in his yard he wants cut down next week. I'll need some fruit wood to round it out.

I got as far as I could today before the light faded. I still need to add the air vents to the door. The hinges are just basic barrel hinges so the door can be slid off when we want to sit by the fire.

I got a little more done tonight befor the battery drill gave out. I have to drill some more holes, but I can choke it down to a portion of a 3/8" hole or open it up to wide open. I'm gonna keep drilling a wider pattern of holes the further the horseshoe is swung open. The shoe is tacked on the inside and a full weld around the outside, then ground down.

I cut off and re made the door latch. It was wobbly because it was just a rod running through the steel door. I made a sleeve from some leftover tubing from the hinges and welded it to the front of the door. That gave the through rod some stability. I made a new T-handle for the latch and centered a horseshoe on it rather than hanging it from the top again so when the handle is pushed in against the spring it goes straight in without binding. The sleeve comes to about the third spring coil.
It works very well now and feels firmly latched.
