A beauty still cool from the sea roasted with a big slab of spruce bud butter... about as good as it gets.

Hi Gulf,

You don't have to live, where you were born, otherwise earth wouldn't be as quirky as it is. "Go West Young Man" or is it Old -art?

Young Fart,
I'm to dmn old to move . It is kind of like this with many of the "old farts" from my neck of the woods. If you ask one of us "have you lived there all of your life"? Most of us would answer, "Well,........ not yet"

Hehehhehehhehe. Another answer would be, "up to now, or give me time". I think I'm older than you, in years on earth, otherwise you've got it right! Can you send me a load of crawdaddies, I'm hankering for something good.

You may be older than me. I could not find your age on your "about me" stats. But, if you are, then you can claim the staus of "older than dirt"

I would love to send you some "mud bugs". However, we purge, and "boil" them alive. That usually means eating them the same day or at least the next as they have been caught. Given the distance I don't think that you would like a crawfish with a belly full of swamp mud. But, I think that there is the possibilty of crawfish tails or maybe a few servings of crawfish etouffee (et tu fe). These could be sent frozen. I think that a trade could be worked out for something good from your area. But, please! none of that poison sushi stuff

Can a barrel vault be square?

Would it collapse because of the proportion of the span in relation to the height of the arc that would be required for an efficient oven?

I am thinking of doing 3 courses of brick in a square that would bring me to a height of about 8 inches the interior would be 28 inches square... then do the 'dome' in an arc that would bring the interior to optimum height (whatever that is for the correct proportion ). OR... maybe I could just do a square dome..

The square would allow me to have 'fire on the side' for pizza... and lots of room for bread...

With a 28 inch floor how high should the interior be?

Annie... thinking inside an actual box!

Hi Annie,

This is a question for Brickie or Dave. For some reason, I think (Squares), are not recommended, but I maybe wrong.

I have been told (but have no practical experience) that vault shaped ovens draw air better if they are longer than they are wide. I honestly don't know why this would be in light of the fact that pompeii styles draw perfectly well, yet they are not longer than wide. So maybe someone with some hands on experience can chime in.

The proportion between door height and vault interior is 63%...but I think you can get away with a few percentage points (say five) on either side of that and still do fine.

If you are doing a vault, I'd take a look at Tscarbouroughs build. He offset his door to one side a bit to allow a more defined area for the fire, with a straighter shot to the cooking area. I don't know that it's a huge big deal, but I copied his idea and really like it. The pic below shows it on my build.




BTW, gotta love the roasted salmon. I go to Alaska every year and come back with a ton of reds, kings (Chinnook), and silvers (coho). Good stuff. (Edit: By "ton" I mean a lot. Not an actual ton. :-) )

Square shouldn't be a problem, my next one will be so.
