please check my WFO specs
« on: March 07, 2014, 01:38:45 AM »
Hi,

I'm very close before building a naples style brick oven.
The oven should be (semi)mobile so the inner diameter is 80cm (31.5"). Using the '63% and 3.4' rule to determine dome and mouth hight, the dome should be 24cm (9.5") and the mouth 15cm (5.9") (mouth width 38cm [15"]).
Are those values usable?

Thanks in advance :)

I personally would not built to those numbers.  I wouldn't go less then 36", but if you are set on 31.5 I still wouldn't go lower the 13" for the dome.  That works well with a 16x8 hemispherical door.

why not smaller than 36? due to thermal facts or a better handling?

Room to cook.  Smaller, and the pizza is too close to the fire.
