Default Re: My first oven is a success

James -

On another thread I had mentioned the idea of a FB "convention" (no silly hats) where we might do an oven build, exchange recipes, drink wine, and eat pizza. This might be the perfect time to plan and execute a non-mortared oven and record it for an e-book. I am on the East Coast, but it strikes me that a Napa/Sonoma winery might see hosting something like this as a great way to promote their wine to a group of people who already exhibit exquisite taste! I would certainly make the trip for such a gathering.

I think that making it out of the materials already on the Pompeii list would be ideal so that a builder could make the 1 hour oven, enjoy it, and then use the material for the Pompeii.

This sounds like a great idea, as last weekend my fiance and I hired a mobile oven for our engagement party and had about 70 people there for pizza and I am absolutely hooked on brick/woodfired ovens. But I don't plan on building a permanent one as we will be moving house in less than a year and our place will probably be demolished by the next owner.

I am already thinking about the pile of spare pavers at the back of my shed and making something along these lines. How did you hold the roof up on your oven? I see on the one hour oven page that he has changed the roof to a piece of refractory that he has cast.

I used some angle iron from a job that I did to hold the roof up.


I am planning on rebuilding the oven this summer with a few modifications.
I will take a bunch of pics and try to write something up for the forum
if there is interest

We are always interested in pictures of ovens. It's part of the obsession

Yes Tim, after looking at that link (thanks Ken) it would be nice to see yours too. How about your pics from last year??

That should help all of us realize how flexible a wood fired oven can be. We get so caught up with perfect looking domes and are crushed by a few cracks....that bread looked fantastic!

yes, and potential new builders get worried about whether they'll be able to build one... and maybe decide not even to try.

One-hour ovens are cool!

Perchance Francis, perchance.
Mate, what is it with these people?
A brick oven MUST move.
You show me your crack, and I'll flaunt mine.
Our pile of bricks split directly as an architect would have predicted.
I'm just a blow-in larrikan,[and wouldn't know shit from clay, which seems somehow appropriate] but it seems I dun good eh.She split right there where I reckoned it might. (Some where near the weak point eh.)
Strewth fellers, just do it!!
Gotta be good, tru eh.
teach.

I'm getting scared and I like it!
I think I'm almost more fascinated with the thermodynamics! I can live with the bread from my oven, but I love stretching the heat.
