What type of bricks? Mortar or cement???

I live way off the grid on 90 acres... so there is no worry about driving my neighbours nuts with smoke.

Do you ever use the oven on your wood burning stove? My mother had a stove exactly like yours and she baked in it all the time.

Thanks for the link... I took a look, and you're right. A little too high end for me... I'm really hoping to use some of the local rocks from my area. But, I need to learn what will work and what won't.

There's a lot of granite and shale on my land... Maybe I'll find me a geologist. A geologist who likes food!

Yes, all the time. It takes a little getting used to, but once that happens, you're on your way! The main thing, is that you normally have to turn whatever you're baking once or twice... the firebox is on the left so that side of the oven gets hotter than the right, obviously.

Cooking on an old wood stove = Rugged!!

I think I would be more concerned with bringing it up to temp slowly enough, in the winter, to keep it from cracking. Who knows, poor uneducated people all over the world have been figuring out how to bake bread in outdoor ovens since the dawn of time. I'm sad to admit that it's beyond me!

Any water trapped inside expands when it freezes, causing cracking and spalling. Earthenware is much more suitable for warmer climates.

Thanks for that link... I checked it out, pretty cool!


Our winters here in Nova Scotia aren't that cold... (not compared to where I used to live outside of Thunder Bay... minus 40 - 50 in the winter!). I think look around this area to see who is doing what... there must be more than one Rugged Dude in NS! (Did I just type that?)
