The cooking surface will be around 56 inches, it is a big oven.

Re: Polo's Thread
I like the look of it. Why the slot in the chimney?

Re: Polo's Thread
You will still lose masses of heat through the ovens contact with the concrete slab so you are wasting your time with the floor insulation. :(

Re: Polo's Thread
I know you will lose heat unfortunately i was not aware that needed insulation before i started reading the forum, i guess i will still do it as it is, thanks anyway the chimney will have a trap to close it whenever i want will not have that opening when its finished

Re: Polo's Thread
It is unfortunate that you found us too late. Adding the insulation under the floor will definitely help. The good news is that firebrick isn't that great of a conductor of heat. Hopefully the loss from dome to slab will be minimal.
