To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

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!

  • Newbie Design Phase Jacksonville

    Hello All, first of all i am a little overwhelmed by all the information on the site. I have downloaded the plans from the store, printed them out, and read every word. I am in the design phase of my outdoor kitchen and i am wanting to include a 39" internal pompeii oven with a corner installation. The plan view of this type of install was included in the downloaded pdf, but i am confused as to which foundation and block stand to use as a guide. From browsing around the forum i see a few corner installs but not alot of reference to sizes.
    A couple of other questions if I may.
    1. If I am mainly building the oven for cooking pizzas, would the interior height of the dome be at a suggested height of 15.5" with an Opening width of 19" and an opening height of 11"..(Low Vault per the specs in the pdf)

    Thanks to any replies, I am looking forward to posting pictures and sharing my progress. I know there are no stupid questions, just stupid answers, but you may be surprised by some of the questions I will ask...

    Woodhead,
    I did a 37 inch corner install. The block base is 62.5" X 62.5" with a cantilevered area over the base's opening that extends out probably another 8 - 10 inches for the vent floor and landing.

    Get some graph paper and draw out your plan to scale. That will help make sense of what space you need. Basically, 39" + 9" (= external size of dome) + whatever insulation you plan (4 - 6 inches) and then space for whatever finish you're going to use (4 - 8"). A 39 inch dome will not fit on my size block base unless you skimp on insulation, which I do not recommend. That means going up an additional 8" in size, to a 70.5" square base, unless you want to attempt cutting cement block.

    I think the plans you downloaded use the dimensions for a corner installation based on the pre-fab/casted FB ovens, and are not correct for a brick built version.

    I'm not sure of the height of the dome for the lower dome version. 19 -20 inch entry width is fine. 11 - 12" height is also good.

    Others, please correct me if I'm steering him wrong.

        More planning for the entryway and landing would have been beneficial for me. I kind of made it up as I went along, which is not really the best way to go.

        Glad I could help.

          By way of introduction:
          Though I live primarily in Ponte Vedra, I have a place in Cresent Beach on the Matanzas. This is where I am building my oven.
          I pass through Jax Bch (mostly to and from Ragtime), and would like to take a look at your project. At what stage are you?
          I have just finished the oven base, and will begin work on the hearth floor this Thursday.
          Regards,
          IDOC

            IDOC,

            My project is just in design phase. I would actually be curious to see your project. The wife is on me about getting the whole backyard done by summer....I live in Jax beach back off Penman towards the intercoastal. What size oven are you building..Part of a whole project. Would like to see where you are getting all of your materials. Look forward to talking to you.
