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!

  • new into building oven help please??????

    Hi everyone, i have been following this great forum for months now, and after all this time its time for me to start and build my own mobile pizza trailer here in perth western australia, my project is going to be very similar to one of the fire within trailer with single axle.
    My doubt are about how to build the best base and what material use to have the best insulation and durability for my brand new valoriani, i will build the oven by my self and there are so many school of ideas out there that is getting a bit confusing to understand whats best and whats not, so for example how thick do i have to weld the square/base still on the trailer, or should i pour concrete or there are other material? so if anyone of you can help me with step by step and what to use i would really appreciate,.
    Sorry for the too many question but im really struggling to understand,
    thanks very much christian

      I sent a friend request to you as well as a private message. I think that we can help each other as I am building a trailer/oven combo as well.

        Do a search on mobile or trailer ovens, there is quite a lot here on the forum. There are lots of things to consider.
        Have you looked at the weight of your oven in relation to the spring load? A single axle presents problems with the centre of gravity, particularly if the load is pretty heavy. Not only the centre of gravity in relation to the axle front and back, but the height of the oven also. I think having it lower than you would really like is a good safety move.
