Yes, unglazed it would be very difficult project. Up in the cold, you may want to consider a cover for the uninhabitable months, A tarp or something.

What a beautiful layout and finish on the outdoor kitchen! You certainly built one striking entertainment/cooking area. My only question is "With such a fabulous setup, how could you possibly get those pictures without a hoard of party people in front of the oven?"

Great job. Looking forward to reading about your exploration of "good eats from a stunning, hand-crafted, brick oven".

Damn, I'd be happy just to get some sort of brick and stone on my exterior.

That looks ahhhhhhhhhh-Sum. A job well done. I love it when hard work pays off like that.

Just in case anyone is curious about the back side of the oven, since I didn't include a picture, I do have this one (sorry the quality could be better) but it does show that I didn't tile the entire dome. I didn't have enough for one thing and the process of attaching each one would have taken me a few days to accomplish. I'm completely satisfied with just the front. I simply stepped back as I worked until I couldn't see any empty areas from the front view to get the look I was after. This back shot shows the seating I have opposite the chef (me!) and how it looks from yet another angle.

I threw in the shot of laying the street brick around the slab too, just for reference in case anyone is interested.

Anyway, I thought these pictures might help anyone looking to recreate this effect should they stumble upon it in the future.

Thanks V-wiz! I used an old chimney liner. We had the roof redone this summer and we removed the chimney to our fireplace, I had the guys save the flue for me and I re-purposed it for the oven - I have 2 more sections like this one left - 2 more ovens? I think not.

I will be completely honest and say I have no idea what method is best. I was so happy when the chimney was done (worst part of the build for me!)

Indeed - and to think that 'free' flue only cost me the price of a new roof!

Either way will work fine, but the chance of cracking is much higher with the un-lined chimney on an oven. For example, on my oven, it is lined, but on the BBQ (less use, less heat), it is not.
