simple and small brick oven
I would like to build a small - 2 loaves max - brick oven for making bread during the summer. I have a lot of wood I could use for fuel, and my main goal is not to have an oven going in the house. I am not particularly handy, and have never mixed, poured, rebarred, etc. concrete. I downloaded the plans for dome ovens from Forno Bravo, and I think I could never successfully build to them. I was hoping for something a lot simpler. I am guessing I will have to pour concrete no matter what I do, but I just want to start smaller and simpler. Also, unless I'm misunderstanding, in Forno's design you have the fire and the bread in the same compartment. I was thinking you could build the fire underneath and bake the bread on top. Is that a misconception? I have absolutely no need to make a lot of bread at a time. Usually I bake a single loaf. Very occasionally two.
Thanks for any pointers you can give me.
