Default Re: 42" Brick Oven & Grill in Los Angeles.

One oven we built in the dead of winter. When the oven was done, we put an electric heater inside it day and night while we did the stonework. It seemed to work o.k. but the moisture wasn't really driven out until we started firing it. Patience....you'll get there!

Thanks fellas, appreciate the advice. The charcoal is working fine for now, for a stronger fire ill switch to wood. Dave i didnt get any smoke using the heat beads/ briquettes, however the propane weed burner did blacken the oven and created visible smoke.

Here are some more from today, got the oven walls up to 400-425. Today went pretty well i guess. I got down the method pretty well. The charcoal chimney starter worked like a charm, lit up a few pieces of wood then constantly added wood, every 2 minutes i would throw in a piece inside, worked pretty well. The fire was constant and never went out in the chimney starter, i used scrap 2x4 wood at first then switched over to Hardwood/Mulberry.






Threw in some Mulberry to dry out for the next firing.



And here are the cracks thus far.

Some more pictures from the weekend.

Finished the BBQ pit walls & floor.



Since i have sooo much for the beautiful bricks we created a planter/brick wall. Made a form to pour a concrete footing.



Concrete poured.




Three rows of brick laid

I can hardly wait to see the final oven and also the pit! I placed my insulation over the cladding, before the curing fires . So, in my mind, those cracks don't exist in my oven . Out of sight out of mind .
