Hello all,

I've been lurking in the forums for two years or so while in the planning stages of my oven. I finally have the time and property of my own to actually build the oven. Right now I'm drawing the oven in CAD and I have a question about the landing. I tried going though as many posts as possible prior to posting and I apologize if this has been addressed/asked before.

The Pompeii plans call for an 8" vent landing and a 12" oven landing; so that's a total of 20" in front of the opening to the oven. For a 42" oven, its another 42" to the back of the oven. So that's 62" (over 5') to get too the back of the oven.

I'm considering modifying the plans to have a 12" vent landing and eliminate the oven landing. I like the look of the oven landing but I'm concerned it will be difficult to reach the back the oven.

I'm wondering if really should be concerned? Is the length of a typical peel handle long enough to retrieve a pizza from the back of the oven without scorching your hand?

Thanks in advance
