Default 42" Brick Oven & Grill in Los Angeles.

Good Day all, im happy to say that im slowly starting my pizza oven. I am absolutely in love with playing with fire and cooking over fire. My plan is to build a 42" oven, the dome will be exposed with smooth plaster/stucco coated over the dome. The stand will be covered with vintage bricks. The chimney will be either with firebricks then bricks over the firebrick or just red bricks stacked. I also plan on building a grill with firebricks inlayed. The grill will have a custom lid so i can cover the grill for smoking purposes. I also plan on having a small sink on one side. So far these are my plans, im sure things will change down the line but for now this is it. I am so excited to get things moving. Below are some pictures of the area i plan on having the oven at, the oven will be at the corner.

How far from the house is that? Will you have a prep area? Nice yard, nice view if the fence wasn't so tall, but I see the neighbor's house below. Have fun and a Merry Christmas.

That area is about 40-50 feet from my house, and about 30-40 feet from the attached patio. I will have extra counter space, so that can be my prep area. Its intended to be a outdoor kitchen area, with the floor being covered with more bricks. Ill probably put up some chairs and my wood fired clay chiminea. My yard is a mess, but im working on it, beginning with that Oven . The street slopes down so the my next door neighbors house is lower than mine, so the view of those beautiful mountains don't get affected. Thank you Merry Christmas to you as well.

Well today was a waste of a day. We rented a stump grinder and the darn thing didn't work. We had to take it back. Here is what came out of that tree. Its Mulberry.

V-wiz,

If you just grind the stump, it will compromise anything on top over time. It's a pain it the butt but I dig them out. If you pour your slab over the area, make sure you have steel to span the area. Just my opinion but I respect it.
