Default Re: My 42" Pompeii Oven build, Northeast Ohio

Hi Joe,
I have had some small amounts of mortar come out of a few joints as well, but I am not too concerned. I believe one of the best methods for climates like ours it to perform a few small curing fires again if you suspect moisture in the dome, especially during winter/spring when it's used less frequently.
As for adding more mortar, there are others better versed than me on that topic. I would search the forum.
But you could always fill the cracks again w/ mortar.
I used the homebrew mixture w/ good success.
What's the worst that happens, it falls out again?
Tks.

Todd Boyland

Thanks for your response. My biggest concern was heat loss, or even flame going up into the dome and having contact with the actual insulation blaket. Also, if excessive heat were getting into the dome without a place for it to be released, can enough presure build to where it would cause cracking or even explode. I have heard of them exploding. I don't know if that is a tall tail, but I can see how it may happen.

Joe,
If you used the ceramic fiber blanket (or substantial equivalent) recommended by FB you should be fine.
If memory serves me, it's good to 2800 or 3200 degrees.
Way above anything the oven will produce.

Thanks Todd for your comments. I guess I'll fire it up and see what happens.

Boylanta, just wanted to congratulate you on a fantastic oven and, more importantly for a noob like me, such detailed posts.

I've been worrying about the arches and trying to work out how much room I needed so I could size my hearth and hence the foundation. Reading through your build has put me straight on a number of matters. Really liked the way you ground out the inner arch to sit the chains on.

I think I'll settle down with a beer tonight and read the whole thing again. well done again...
