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!

  • Insulating base board in the UK

    I am looking at the following web site to obtain the insulating base board. Ideally i do not want to have to build a 4 - 6 inch thick perlite or vermiculite insulating layer, and would prefer to use one of the specialist insulating boards plus maybe a couple of inches of the vermiculite or perlite mix.

    The question is which board should I use and is the board considered to be superior to the diy V or P mixes?

    Superisol 30 ?
    Promasil 30,40 or 50 ?
    Silica boards ?

    I think the superisol 50 will give you the two inches of insulation you need.

      wow that was quick.

      would I need anything else under the Supersol? or would the 2 inches be enough?

        Yes, I have 2 1/2" of a less good (mineral fiber) board, and my support slab hardly gets warm to the touch. That should be good.
