It was difficult to see the interior design from that video but it seems similar to this: Aprovecho Rocket Bread Oven - YouTube

It is not like the Aprovecho oven....The one above is using a cold air 2ndry and a bed of lava rocks as a type of catalyst to acheive a clean burn....the top of the Mcguire stove clocked at 1350f at the top of the catalyst chamber. The Arprovecho is just 2 drums, cook inside of the small one, The rocket just goes around it before exhaust....He was cooking closer to 400f ...Still a neat concept though.

Looking at the video and incorporating you comments about a floor built over the lava rock area may create a very hot floor but I believe the dome would be difficult to heat. You may be able to heat up a high mass bread oven and work with retained heat for baking but it might be difficult to generate the proper heating for a pizza cook. Hot floor cool dome.

The accent is only a moderate distraction. A tripod would be a good investment. Only watched a minute and ended up with a cross between vertigo and motion sickness!

Yes I agree and he is trying to sell those fire boxes with those videos. I makes me wonder about the attention to detail in other areas.

I do like the lava rock as catalyst but it think you may want a way to get into that part of the stove should the lava rock degrade or creosote up over time. Some of the internal temps he is getting must be quite high based on the readings he is getting on the outside.

He does have a tripod, I saw him use it in one of the episodes.

And this post just brought me to 1000 posts on the site. Now ranked as Il Pizzaiolo

Interesting stuff. A low thermal mass means that the oven will cool really fast if the fire dies a little or goes out completely.

Ok. The weather has been miserable so I haven't done much. I decided to play around with the idea of combining the tandoor and rocket stove to create this little box oven. It was my first time ever smoking food and I must say it turned out pretty good.

Down the road I want to of course increase the size and include more of the rocket stove aspects.
