  • Bloody Aussies, showing up everywhere!

    And here's another one!
    Hi All, Matt from Albury, NSW.
    Looking to start my WFO in the next week or so.
    Just Got my kit from Melbourne Firebricks - thanks Ben.
    Planning on doing a 42" Pompeii hoping to get it finished in the school holidays (in 2 weeks time).
    Should have the foundation done this weekend, the stand up during the week (doing a double house brick base), then the oven Base done during the following weekend.
    Any way, thanks to all for tips and tricks, some great resources here hope to show off my oven soon with a few home made craft beers!

        Hey Guys.
        Not planning to rush it too much. What about perlite, would it be a better option to use. I have read somewhere that a week is a good drying time for a vermiculite floor, I'm hoping that this will work with my timeline.
        Do I need to do a vermiculite floor if I have an insulation base under the floor bricks?

        I would like to have the oven cured by mid November, do a few test Pizzas, ready for 4-5 pizza/beer/pool parties!!

          Hi Hammo,

          6 of 1 and half a dozen of another, Hard to say whats best I have a good layer of vermiculite mixed with cement under the insulation board which is under the fire bricks & in my humble opinion you cant have too much insulation.
          Especially if you want to try slow cooked meats down the track, the better your insulation the more stable your heat loss will be and as for the drying personally I didn't worry about the base at all, however I took my time with drying out the dome.

          good luck.
