my dome stays hot for 2 to 3 days!

no need for a barrel...
Pompeii is the new pink....

Less material, less wood, definitely the way to go....

Yup! Do some more reading. As always, dmun's right on track. James first built a bread baking style oven, but was unhappy with the results and work required to get it hot enough to make pizza. You just need to ask yourself what you want to do with the oven, and build the type oven best suited to your needs.

You can beef up a pompeii style pizza oven with extra cladding outside the dome to give you more retained heat for extended bake sessions, but it will cost you more wood and time to get it hot. Most importantly, don't underinsulate, especially beneath the floor of the oven. That's where all my residual heat seams to go.

I like it! It's strategically located behind the neighbor's shed so they can't see what your doing until the chimney sticks up!

It depends on your frost line, you want to be below it if al possible.
