Default Brand New and Intimidated!

This is Chef Paul from Ocean Pines, MD, USA. I have been compiling bricks and blocks in my driveway for about six months from fellow recyclers, and I am learning how to do this along with my four kids.

We are hopefully going to lay a foundation in a week or two, and I will go pick up firebricks in about three weeks. Other than that, I have no idea what in the heck i am doing, except for that I am excited to go even further back in cooking history than with the Aga!

Any tips and pointers would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers,

Chef Paul & Family

Thanks for the response! One question. I keep reading about the 'free' plans for the Pompeii. I have been glancing over the general plans extensively on the site for months.

Is there an actual set of detailed plans that I am not seeing, or is the online guide detailed enough and I'm just not getting it yet?

Thanks

Yeah! Aga! I think an Aga or Rayburn solid fuel cooker would be way cool.

Brick ovens are great too.

Did anyone tell you you have to be a bit of a pyromaniac to fit in here?
