Brick vs adobe oven

May 18, 2007 - 12:10pm -- htc

Hi, I'm new to the site and am looking for information on brick and clay ovens. I think I'm interested in building my own but not sure yet. I'm in the very preliminary research phase. I read on this forum that clay ovens require a lot more fuel to heat than brick? Can someone give me more information?

-What are the pros/cons: brick vs. clay adobe oven??

 -Do you use only wood to heat both ovens? (I'm in the city so don't have an abundance of wood easily accessible) Can I use charcoal? Or is that a big no-no?
