    Default Brick Oven

    I found a really great site on building a domed, brick oven.

    That is pretty good. I might have to build one of those.

    Although I'm far from Hawaii, I'm sure there's plenty that I can use for substitutions in the following plans.

    Kemporer - See my post on pit cooking. Same as the IMU link.

    I was actually thinking it might be a good addition to anyone thinking about a homestead. CabinGirl was looking for a chimney oven and this might be a good alternative if your winters are a bit light. My gas grill is used in all but the coldest weather, generally January and February, and I think a brick oven would be much more energy efficient that a grill.

    The designs you provided could also double as a forge provided that the correct mortar is used.
