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!

  • oversize hearth for Casa 110....

    I went ahead with a full size 69 w x 76 d block base for my hearth in case I decided to build a Pompeii brick by brick. Lacking the patience and anyone to help me build, I have decided on a Casa 110. The casa is 48" w x 54 d. I will build a full enclosure around the oven with steel stud, hardiboard and matching stone.

    My questions are -

    1. The casa depth includes the hearth but I cannot tell from the specs if it extends beyond the covered landing of the oven (I dont think it does).

    2. If it does not, I have a stand that is 76" deep. The oven is 54" + 8-10" rear for insulation + 3 1/2 metal stud rear + 1/2" hardi = 66-68
    ". Am I correct that I dont need to add any distance to the front since the metal studs will sit flush with the opening? If so and I push the oven all the way to the rear and make it flush with the base that will give me a landing outside of the vent of 8-10" deep.

    3. On the width, oven is 48" and stand is 69". Do I add 10" total width for insulation + 8" total metal stud/hardi both sides = 66. With 69" total, I think I will pull the metal studs out all the way flush with the base.

    4. I have a 4 block high base and I am going to do a 4" pour w/rebar on top of the hearth followed by a 4" vermic/cement pour + 2" insulation board + 2" floor = 44". If I want a few more inches of height should I increase the 4" rebar pour or the vermic/cement pour? Obviously I would rather increase the vermic pour to say 7 or 8".....(Note that I plan to recess the vermic pour so that my metal studs sit on the rebar pour.
