Re: 36" vs 42"
It's up to the indervidual but personaly I am about to build a 36'' and after months of research this size seems PERFECT. We have cut out a jig and at first it seems small BUT remember 36'' of TOTAL cooking circumfrence. ''The badger'' made a very good point regarding cooking pizza's. It's important to remember that when cooking pizza in these wood ovens they require a small fire or burning embers pushed to one side of the oven and once your oven has reached around 700 F, then your pizza is placed on the oven floor/base it's important to remember you will be turning the pizza a few times just so the rim or outside of the pizza can get a even crunchy chared crust.
No matter how big the oven ends up being, when it comes to cooking pizza, you will end up finding out that you will ALWAYS cook one pizza at a time and it litrally takes between 90 seconds too about 3 minutes MAXMUM to cook a pizza in these wood ovens. The other benifit a 32'' to 36'' oven has over the larger ones is, you will find that it heats up allot faster and more importantly they keep the temperature within the oven at a constant temperature for a much longer period then your larger ovens.
Lets face it if its not pizza your cooking then most dishes will require you to heat the oven to approx 500 F and remove all the wood, embers and ash and then place your dishes in the oven to cook with the door partially closed or closed. My point is once this is done you could cook enough for a huge amount of people whether it's a 32'', 36'' or 42 and so on. At the end of the day it's up to the indervidual.
