After watching our Simple Brick Oven Plan Video, Roger sent us these photos of his Brick Oven Construction. He has modified the Brick Pizza Oven Plan we used to be able to hold more heat and make a Backyard Brick Bread Oven.
Enjoyed your brick oven video. We found the same plan after being inspired by our daughter who had spent a week with Bread and Puppet on her campus in Iowa (they built an oven and baked bread for the audience after their performance).
Attached are some photos. We added the wooden door for bread baking. We soak it prior to baking so that it steams the oven and gives the bread a nice spring as it bakes. We purchased a [ Fluke ] infrared thermometer to ensure the proper temp for the baking. Fluke 62 Mini Infrared Thermometer
A typical baking progression includes: flatbreads, pizza, bread, tart. It’s great fun. Thanks for sharing your video, Roger
I like how Roger has added more mass to the Wood Fired Brick Oven to allow it to bake bread, yet still retaining the break down portable nature of the oven, keeping the oven a simple dry fit brick wood oven, easy to build and then take down.
I need to buy one of those Infrared Thermometer gizmos
