I ordered a WFO
« on: July 21, 2012, 01:54:36 PM »
I have a custom 42" Pompeii with a low-dome being built.  Can anybody guess who is building it?

No, not a kit.  Not Jeff.  He is a forum member though.  Thanks Chau.

Is it Tom?

It's someone relatively local to you, right?

Btw, 16" is 'low dome?'  :) Craig, I've been meaning to ask, what's your dome height?

Door is 17.5" x 9"
Sidewall (soldier course) is 9"
Dome center height is ~15.25"
Oven diameter is 47"

I'm putting my money on Craig being the mystery helper.  He can do everything else, why not build ovens too?   ;D
I'd rather eat one good meal a day than 3 squares of garbage.

Bob,

You will notice that just about the only oven I ever talk about on the forum in any detail is my 20+-year old Whirlpool electric oven. Since my motto is "First, do no harm", and since I try to play to my strengths rather than to my weaknesses, there is a good reason why I don't post about ovens. I can put what I know about ovens in a thimble. Gene (Jet_deck) is far too knowledgeable and far too wise to entrust me with anything that has to do with his new oven.

Yeah.....o.k.  :'(   Still, would have been a great coup though. I was already imagining the fine engraved plaque adorning that magnificent oven..... :P

Peter, I wouldn't sell yourself so short.  If, while performing your moderator duties, you've read a fraction of all the oven related posts in this forum, you should have more oven knowledge than most.

scott123,

As a Moderator, I do try to look at every post. My first duty is to be sure that posts are in the right place in the forum's indexing system. But I do not read every post for complete comprehension. Things are fairly quiet now, most likely because of summer, but there are days where there can be close to 250 posts. So, I have to be selective about which posts I read carefully to really understand what is being said, and hoping that the posters really know what they are talking about and aren't passing on misinformation.

Over the past few years, there has been an explosion of posts on the forum relating to ovens. All kinds of ovens. From WFOs (because of the dynamic growth in the Neapolitan pizza style), to commercial ovens, to mobile ovens, to LBEs, MBEs, to BGEs, to 2Stone units, to grills, to modded home ovens, to countertop ovens, and, of course, the use of soapstone and steel plates in lieu of the more traditional pizza stones for standard home ovens. When I first joined the forum in 2004, the predominant ovens were standard unmodified home ovens. Over the past few years, I am sure that I have learned something about all kinds of ovens as the volume of posts on ovens increased, and I have paid closer attention to the posts involving standard home ovens (including a lot of your posts), but there are members who are far more knowledgeable than I about ovens--in many cases they are professionals in the field with a lot of experience--and can do a far better job counselling others than I can do. As Dirty Harry once put it in Magnum Force, "A man's got to know his limitations."  :-D
