Construction of my 36" pompeii is now well under way - on our 4th course (pictures to follow soon...)
But I think I've hit a bit of a snag... due to unforseen issues, the final dome height is now looking close to 20" high and the door height some 11.5" high - giving a door to dome ratio of just 57%. I'm not building a vent either.... Will this oven work?
Answers on a postcard , please - I think I could do with the kindling
I agree. I'm sure it will work fine. We give out %'s of dome height to diameter and entrance height to dome height. These percentages are meant to give the oven the best performance, but often Clay ovens are often built with a high dome and a lot of the Clay ovens don't have an entrance or vent........just an opening cut out of the clay form......they all work.
Your oven falls into the "ball park" figures of these percentages anyway.
