- 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!

  • Question about hearth size Casa 2G 110?

    Hi Guys, I had originally poured a slab that was 77"w X 86"d. My initial idea was to build a 42" Pompeii oven on this slab but with all the other projects I have going on and very little spare time I'm starting to lean towards purchasing a Casa 2G 100 or 110.

    Does anyone see a problem with me building the block stand and hearth to the specs for a 42" Pompeii and using that hearth for a Casa 2G 110?

    The recommended hearth specs for the Casa 2G 110 are 58"w X 65"d and the actual external dimensoins of the 2G 110 are 48"w X 54"d so I understand that my hearth is going to be larger than needed but my thought was that if I positioned my Casa 2G a little more towards the back of the hearth it would give me a little more of a landing up front and the large open space on the left and right side of the opening would act as counter space.

    Anyone see any problems with this? My thought was that since the larger slab was already poured I might as well try to make good use of it.

    Any horizontal 'counter' space ensuing from a smaller-than-originally-planned oven footprint will undoubtedly be utilized and gives you the opportunity to surface it however you best. It sure beats the builders who have the opposite problem.
