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!

  • My first WFO casa 2G 90

    I am building my first WFO, and it seems to be going well. I had to use about 1/4" of sand to get the floor some what level but still ended up seeing a little lip on some pieces. One thing I am wondering is I used the insulation provided with the kit. Is this enough to retain the heat? after that I put lath wire around it and then coated it with a mix of type 2 cement motar mix with sand and did about 2-3 layers of this. I guess my next question would be will the type S cement motar keep water out? I do plan on tiling the outside of the oven with 2x2 tiles to math the tile counter top and adding waterproof grout if thier is any. feed back is appreciated. I am also going to try and add some pics to this but not sure how to do that?

    Hello Stumpjump,

    To answer your question, the insulation is enough to retain the heat. You would still need to seal the oven with a concrete sealer. Please let me know if you have any other questions, you can also reach me at 1-800-407-5119 ext 14.

      Thanks HeidiL2011,

      I will contact you regarding what sealer I should put on before adding the tiles and where it can be purchased. I have only been able to find large 20L tubs and that is way to much and expensive.

      The FB floor board that comes with the oven sticks out from the sides approx. 2+ inches. I have cut this to align it with the edges of the oven dome. Is this okay or will it cause me problems. I guess I should have asked sooner as I have already coated the outside with the cement mortar. If it does what am I expecting and how can I correct it.

      Thanks Mike
