  • Newbie FB Pompeii90 build

    Hi Everyone,
    I'm new to this forum and building a WFO. We purchased the Forno Bravo Pompeii90 kit and picked it up the other day in Marina, CA. We live outside Sacramento, CA so it was a days ride over and back. We started this venture (pizza oven) by being in Boquete, Panama a month ago. The folks we stayed with (in a casita on their property) had a small WFO and then we went on a tour of a coffee farm and the fellow who owns the from is fram San Francisco. He had built a Pompeii 42" and we were intrigued. We decided to build one because we both love to cook. So on we go. I appreciate the response regarding the IT so far and look forward to more info, both getting and giving in the near future. Have placed the pad already and will start on the concrete block walls whenever it stops RAINING!!! Oh well, better the rain.

    If you are thinking about building a brick oven, my advice is Here.

    I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.

      Placed concrete slab. Will now place 1" bed of level mortar and start foundation.
