I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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!

  • 36" brick oven

    Howdy!

    I'm new to the forum. I'm building an outdoor kitchen and would like to install a pompeiian oven with a 36" interior diameter. I've looked at the 42" plans supplied at the forno bravo site (thanks!). Has anyone here built a 36" version? I'd appreciate any info you can provide. I'll be happy to supply photos and step-by-step description as I go along.

    36" Pompeii oven dimensions

    Yes, I have the same question? Do the instructions exist for the 36" oven? On the FornoBravo site it says they do, but I have been unable to find them.

    Also, is it ok to place the oven in a corner?

    Thanks. Shan

      If you go to the 'Resources' section of the main Fornobravo Homepage where it lists the 'Pompeii Brick Oven'then click on it, scroll to the bottom and click on ' Table of Contents' , then scroll down to ' Dome Construction', this page will give you the deminsions you will need to understand to construct a 36" oven,

      And yes, you can place the 36" in a corner. I am starting a 36" tomorrow that will be built that way.

      If you go to the 'Pompeii Oven Construction' section of the forum, you will see Paulages is documenting, with pictures, an oven being constructed with a corner orientation.

        New Oven Dimensions page

        I can see that is isn't easy to find all the dimensions in one place, so I have added a page that shows the oven, opening, stand and foundation dimensions in one place.

        Go to: http://fornobravo.com/pompeii_oven/dimensions.html

        There is now a link to the dimensions page from the main Pompeii Oven overview page. I will add a few other links to the dimensions page throughout the instructions.

        Can someone double check my math? This reflects the thinking that a 1" insulating blanket and 4" vermiculite is enough dome insulation.

        Thanks.

          thanks for adding this, james! i made up my own drawings when i couldnt find something like this in the plans. it definitely makes all of the measurements explained in the plans make more sense.
