Hi Mark,

I have checked out those plans. At first I was motivated to try to build one myself knowing how much money I could save. However, then I looked at some threads and saw the time and skill required to build one out of brick and decided that a cast oven would probably be better for my situation. Nevertheless, I still did get a whole lot of good info out of the tutorial/plans that will carry over to a pre-case oven. Still not sure when I will get started but it is officially "on the list".

On a side note, we went to a local restaurant today that cooks with a wood-fired oven. I talked to the owner a little about their oven and he said that there are quite a few people around the area that are building ovens. They happened to get their oven from another dealer but he did recommend Forno Bravo. Got me excited to get moving on my oven.

Matt

Matt - James (FB) is casting his own line of ovens in Marina, CA. I saw first hand on how well these things work. If you have the $$, and not the time, that IS the route to go. On the other side - the skill you mentioned.... I think most of us lacked that until we bought the first brick.

All,
If you local folk are interested you are welcome to come on over and take a peek and see how mine works if you want. I fire it up about every two weeks rain of shine. I would really like to do another one but.... I can really only use one wood fired oven. my old thread is probably still active somewhere. I'm at cwilliamslaw@gmail.com

Hi!

Please do not readily accept the answers of ignorant people hating on NJ, I'm sure they have never been here...

As for the Pacific Northwest, I have never been there.
