Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

    I own a mobile wood fired business in the US. Under the hearth, use a ceramic fiber board. I have two inches of this material under my hearth. Over the dome, use a ceramic fiber blanket. I was able to locate this material through an industrial insulation company. The board is used to insulate blast furnaces. The blanket, is used for many functions including insulating pipes that are hot. In the US, the ceramic fiber products are extremely expensive. With that said, it is worth the cost. If you get the insulation wrong, you oven will not run efficiently. For example, if there is not enough insulation under the hearth, the hearth will cool off too quickly. You will need to move the coals back onto the hearth to heat it back up, which will slow you down. If the right insulation is used and installed correctly, then you are less likely to have to move the coals back onto the middle of the hearth to heat it up.
