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!

  • Barrel Style oven layout question

    I am working on the layout of the oven.. On the walls do you usually lay the firebrick tight together or space then and lay with refractory mortar? I have attached a picture of the dry layout that i have came up with, just curious on the spacing of the walls.

    Any input would be appreciative..thanks

    Well i think that i am going to put a small joint of mortar in between and on the bottom, think that it will keep the sides and top more even

      Is it a full barrel vault or a flattened one?

        well it will have a rounded arch...kinda like the one in Alan Scott's Book. Pretty much the same layout as he uses for the oven 36 deep by 32 wide and a 16" door

          Um, why is the door on the end? I've never seen a barrel oven (brick) done that way.

              The ovens I've seen had the door along the long side.

              Forgive my lack of Sketch Up skills, but the picture probably explains it better.

                      If it is a standard barrel arch, there is no need to soldier the first course.

                        Hey Meco,
                        Stand barrel arch or wheather you soldier the first course or not, (your choice)My point was just to show you that the entrance is commonly in the front... Its is a nice looking oven, Just a pic I found on the web...

                        Cheers

                          I see you have posted quite a bit so you probably already answered this, but why a barrel oven instead of a Pompeii?

                              If you look at my link it shows all stages of a housed barrel oven being built.
