First project with my bro
Hello The Fresh Loaf forum,
I am here today because my brother and I are wanting to start a new project in the back yard. We are planning to build a wood-fired oven to bake bread and even pizzas on the weekends. There are many online at stores like this http://www.used.forsale/canada/toronto/gas-pizza-oven but building one seems more cost effective and fun. We have been getting into baking just recently coming up with different recipes that we can play with to make unique bread. We believe that the oven is the key to making this bread perfect and it gives us some brotherly time togeather.
My main question would be, Is there any point in building one? I have known people to use pizza ovens and even just a hole in the floor that gets covered up to bake their delicious bread. Which would be cheaper? and which would be more effective in terms of taste? We have never taken on a project like this before or even used a wood-fired oven so we are clueless of everything especially the kind of building costs and hidden costs that we will come across.
Any information that you guys can share with us will be greatly appreciated. We are both open books and very sponge-like when it comes to absorbing information. Really looking forward to speaking with you all and hopefully getting this project on the go.
