Hi, could anyone help me and advise the likely time it will take to fire up my oven once completed and cured properly. I am building a high vault 30" pompei oven exactly as described in the forno bravo plans using firebricks, thermal blanket and 4" vermiculite insulation. I'm just worried as I've heard some can take 2 hours to reach pizza cooking temperature which isn't what I had in mind when I started the project. I had to reduce the size from 36" oven to 30" as I messed up the base but anyhow should still be ok it looks decent enough, right now I'm half way through building the dome.
