Default Re: Midieval oven in Gruyere Castle (Switzerland)

Thanks for posting the pictures but, now I have to add a turning spit to my design of my outdoor cooking area . LOL

I'm new to this site just been lurking for a few weeks and making plans for a oven at our Sonoma, CA home. For now I'm cooking pizza and bread in or big gas oven with a 3/4" slab of cast material (got it from an eBay seller) fitted to within 1" of the edges of the oven. It makes some good pizza and bread but, I can't wait to start my brick oven.

Thanks for such a great site and information
Frank

Frank,

FB's showroom and warehouse are in Sonoma county, CA -- you should call ahead and swing by. It would be fun to see the ovens and accessories.

Frances! Really!
I simply can't accept that you would turn down a nice piece of Man or Maid....................especially if a peek at the oven was on offer.
Mate, ever since the local brick manufacturers gave me the FB address, arches old, new and indifferent have become a focal point.
eg.
We're at the cinema, eh, and the Good Guy is about to get done by the Bad Guy, and they're at the apex of a Roman viaduct in Bulshitastan.
So what happens?
I see The Best keystone ever created.
Well what would you do in the face of naked Purity? Sit there and suck on yer teeth?
Me either. Just forgot meself eh, and belted me elbow into my True Love's ribs. Three busted. Ta James. Bone fragments in me flamin elbow.
Such is the seduction of arches. Betul.
Mongrel Jeff.

Thanks, I didn't realize that there was a showroom. I'll have to plan a trip and take pictures and ask a couple LOL questions.

Jeff, I know just what you mean.

Happens to me all the time... elbows, knees... the sheer physical hardships we go through for our ovens cannot be concieved by non-WFO people.

Bulshitastan, eh? I'll swing by there right after I've done Pompeii.

Wow, I just can't seem to keep up with all the oven news these days!
Welcome back - glad you had a good holiday and thanks for posting these photos (and the great ones of your kids I saw on another post).
It's fascinating to see pics of ovens built so long ago. Amazing to think of all the trials we've all been through building our ovens even with all kinds of modern items to make it happen, and those guys did it all without any of our conveniences.
