What is Thermal Shock?
TS is the process of fast heating an outdoor pizza oven surface to a degree that you shock it, this surface does not know how to react but to crack. The same principle applies in reverse. If a surface is too hot and it cools down very fast, the same thing will happen.
How to avoid TS in your wood fired oven?
It is a good practice to heat the oven by adding wood gradually rather than stuffing the oven with wood in hopes of getting a quicker result. Also, when done using the oven, make sure to close the door and damper, to allow the oven to cool down slowly.
