Q For David S

I'm looking at Lburou build

http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/memb...al-breaks.html

Is this the crossdraft you mentioned? Should I leave a gap between the oven's opening and the chimney's arch? I had no idea of this.. thought to just do it all in one piece..

The gap is for a thermal break, its for retaining more heat in the oven, with your build I wouldnt bother.

Whats going to hold the oven roof up?

Do you think the distance to the chimney will be too long? The fire will be in the back..
My oven looks like a coffin..

We looked for a suckling pig for our last Christmas day lunch, the smallest they are allowed to kill and sell is around the 60kgs mark.

We went to all the really nice ethnic markets too in the hope, but you just cant get a small one.
