Hi
I am in the process of getting all my materials up together to build a outdoor pizza oven.
Can anyone help me with these questions.
I am going build the pizza oven on steel frame with wheels (possibly angle iron),
what would be the best and lightest material under the oven floor? and where would i purchase these items in Adelaide?
I am going to build a domed clay oven, any tips and suggestions would be good.

I am using FB Board on my 42" build. How important is it to keep it dry though out the build? Even if you cover it and get a good rain, some water could run under and get to the board.

You should keep it dry. It's OK getting it wet when you are putting it on wet concrete, or putting mortar on top of it -- it dries and stays strong -- but you can't let it stay wet, or it will break down.

If you tarp it well, you should be fine.

Is there any benefit to putting a coating of mortar on the outside edge of the board once it's up, to "seal" the edge at all?

Hi,
I'm new to all this and am hoping to build my own oven sometime. Can anyone tell me which is preferrable for isulation - vermiculite, or fiberglass (or both) -- also is vermiculite essentially the same as perlite?

Thanks,
-Tom

Hello James,
Love the Fire board as a floor insulation in lieu of vermiculite. would it be ok to use 4" of the Fire board? my concern is that the stats indicate a 10% shrinkage, so that means a 2" board would shrink by 1/4". is this ok with the heavy oven on it? also, should sand or anything be put on the fireboard before you set the firebricks? thanks!

Ciao Antonio,

FB Board is definitely rigid enough to handle the weight of the Pompeii or FB precast oven -- a really large number have been installed that way. You can either set your bricks on sand, or on a bed of sand and fireclay (mix it with water and set it with a notched trowel). You tap your bricks to level with a rubber mallet either way.

2" will do it, though you can add a second layer if you would like.

Here is the FB Board pdf brochure.

Good luck!
James
