Default New Progress.... Sorta

Hello all .. I am coming out of the shadows .. No more lurking for me..
I have a question.. Does a 20" dome height and a 12" door sound ok..? it will be a 36 " oven.

Thanks ..

Trellis

Thumbs up Welcome :)

That is about right Trellis....A 12.5 inch door height would be very close to the target 63% of dome height.

A dome height of 20 inches is a bit high for a 36 inch oven, most shoot for a 15-18 inch dome height. However, I wanted a larger doorway for big birds and small feral hogs, so I made mine two inches taller than normal too (keeping the 63% of dome height). I'm happy with it. Does that make sense to you?

Sounds good! Shoot for a door height that is 63% your dome height (a little less than 11 3/8 inches).

Have you downloaded the pompeii oven plans and read them yet? If no, go to the blue link in my signature and find the link to download it for free.

Good Luck Trellis! Hopefully the snow is over now! I put have a 20 inch high 38 inch oven. My door is 11.5" H by 19" wide. Works great for me! Where in Colorado are you?

Taperforce lives just East of Monument....he has some materials for sale and a built oven. You might contact him.

I retired from the Air Force Academy Hospital in 1997 and moved to DFW four years ago. Colorado is a great place to spend the summer.
