Is it possible to make a grill/oven?
 
If you put a barrel vault over a grill, could it be used to grill hamburgers, and cook a pig? To make it an oven you would need to cover the open side, but otherwise, would this work?

Grilling works great in the oven. Search for tuscan grill.

Why a barrel vault?

Needs to be large enought to hold a whole lamb.

A lamb isn't that big. Here's a thread on rotisseries:

A barrel vault oven isn't that versatile. If you are making bakery quantities of bread every day, they are the way to go, but if you want an oven for versatile cooking, the round dome is the ticket.

Ok, I suppose I could use a large round oven.
I would need to slope it slightly to let the juices run out towards the door.
Is there any way to build one for less than $1,000?

And, where are the instructions on here for how to build the dome?

Nothing wrong with that. About the only thing you can't bake on a sloped floor is a pumpkin pie. You might want to think about a drip tray under your rotisserie: Drippings will just soak into the brick floor otherwise.

My general roasting rule is if I want to make gravy, I use a pan, otherwise I just throw it on a sheet of aluminum foil. I've not gotten to the rotisserie stage yet.

Not planning on using a rotisserie. I don't think you need one with even heat.
I could line the floor with aluminium foil.

letting the juices hit the floor will vaporize them to steam, the resulting steam/smoke will flavor the meat...

I don't really make a lot of bread or pizza, so what I want is just something to cook lamb and pigs. This sort of cooker is covered, so I think that makes it an oven, rather than a straight up grill. Has anyone on here designed a straight out lamb/pig cooker?
