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!

  • Error in Pompeii oven materials list for 36" oven

    I was just on my way to head to Lowe's to pick up the beginning supplies for building my oven and I think I discovered some errors:

    Under the materials list for the 36" oven, the foundation is described to need rebar cut to 80" and 94" and studs cut to 83" and 94". These were copied from the instructions for the 42" oven, but were not adjusted to the proper dimensions needed for the 36" oven. These should likely be adjusted to 71" and 80" for the rebar and 74" and 80" for the studs.

    The call for 48 sq ft of wire mesh is also overkill since the foundation for the 36" is just under 40 sq ft. I recommend cutting this down to 32 to 36 sq ft.
