Barrel vault oven dome direction?
« on: March 30, 2011, 11:20:13 PM »
Greetings Guys and Gals,

We have two ovens joined by a middle wall inside a box truck.  We are going to be using coal to fire these ovens and you can see the coal box for the inside  oven in lower left corner of picture.  We will start fire using wood then place coal inside and regulate flame with fan mounted to outside of coal box pushing air through oven and regulating draft with a lever hooked up to the flue pipe.  What im asking is it ok for the direction of the dome for the inside oven to be north to south instead of the traditional east to west?  If we are to do this I believe we need to add an extra wall to help carry two dome going in different directions.  Please correct me.  thanks again
