I've no idea about the Delta Crest 35. As a payback to the host for this great forum, I had no problems purchasing a few of the FB items in the store. You won't go wrong with the ceramic board sold in the Forno Bravo store.

I'd go with 3 inches depth if possible.

Thanks for the info GJ. Do I just lay the board on the hearth slab, and the weight of the oven holds it down, or do I need to attach it to the slab? and if so, in what manner?

Wait a minute. I know the bay area well. Gilroy may well be the garlic capital of the world, especially during the festivities, but to drive through, no. During the festivities, you might as well shut down the road and make it for pedestrians only. It is insane and incredible. Kind of like the pumpkin festival in half moon bay. Ahh, now I have to sell my home and move back, so many great memories. Darn, the kids are too young, give it a couple years.

Hey, do we start a garlic pipeline from Gilroy now?

I'll trade a paella pan....for a nice braid!

I used a 2" thickness of the SuperIsol board and, yes, the weight of the oven holds the board down.

I laid my insulating boards down into the wet concrete of my support slab: This way you don't have to worry about any slight out-of-flat situation and wobbling.

I used mortar to put my 3" insulation boards down, I knew the weight would keep them in place but I didn't want any movement when I started. I put my floor down on a fireclay/sand slurry and at times I wish I would have placed them on refractory mortar as well, especially the entrance way.

Wow! You don't mess around. I see the barb is buried deep already. Wecome. You are going to like it here. It seems that folks wacky enough to seek out and build a wood fired oven tend to stand out from the rest of humanity...in a good way. They seem to be more patient and friendly. I have found this to be a cool, happy place where folks are glad to share knowledge.

Don't forget to tell George you hail from the garlic capital of the world. Gotta show that civic pride!

OK,
So next time down, I'll slow down and take the exit and try the garlic. I've got three books on garlic recipies alone.
