Default Re: new guy wants to build a pompeii oven in brisbane

A Big hello to you too Dave , yep sorry mate i havnt been on line for a while just had little peeks here and there. i have been doing the same mate , just plodding around the garden getting the seasons herbs and veges in on time . i did manage to get the roof on the wfo and so far i am a happy wfo enthusiest , the heat stays in well after the fires gone out and it doesnt take long to heat up . i started to do a bit of outer deco on the oven and i''ll try and add it in the pic's section.
see what happens when some one gets the wfo bug , your mate , he'll be rapped to get we we are and just cook away as much as he wants so look forward to watching is progress.
I got my hands on a buttane weed wand from the hardware to start the fires in the oven and it is about 1 metre long , almost! it has a long stem and the can just twists on so i can light up right at the back, very handy..

Dear Jas

WOW you have been bissy hav'nt you. Man thats a structure isn't it and looking good... you'll have the fancy bits finished in no time I bet. It has the most important thing too I see.. the little smoke stain in the front to show she's a go'er.
So you gone across to the dark side along with OscarA and got one of those weed melting gas weapons as well.... yes saw that clip as well and yes it did appeal to the pyro in me...but I been good and didn't by one.. the wife id kill me...I'm still in trouble for buying the infared thermometer.

Good to hear from you
Regards Dave

A length of pipe is great cheap tool to help starting the fire, maintaining flame and clearing the floor of ash. I use a piece of 8mm stainless pipe, but 12.5 mm copper works ok and is more accessible. Blow don't suck.
