We're building the Pompeii oven and considering running a gas line out to the oven to install a starter in the dome. The starter would be at the back of the dome not to cook with but to simply get our wood burning. Does this make any sense? With the intense heat in the oven could this be at all dangerous. I've never seen these ovens with gas starters so perhaps there is a reason for that.
