  • Hearth insulation -- which layer on top?

    Simone,
    You can read about this "base insulation layer" on :
    http://www.fornobravo.com/FirenzeCon...WeLearned.html and
    http://web.tiscali.it/spirbo/ilfornoalegna/index.htm
    It was discussed here by Jim (see post 16). Our oven is more of a Firenze
    type. We think it will serve us better: we are not planning to bake lots of
    bread, so we do not need a lot of a thermal mass. We are going to use our
    oven mainly for roasting meats and seafood as well as for baking a pizza or
    focaccia. In both cases it's possible to keep some fire going on while
    cooking and reduce time heating up an oven.

    PS We have some pictures and I guess we could post them soon.
