Oven under a large roof for cooking in the rain
I just saw the short film of the fella videoing his beautiful stone oven while cooking in the rain. I noticed someone holding an umbrella near the opening of the oven. I felt compassion for him as I determined my oven would have sufficient roof to cover me as I pull the pie out and place it in some carrying device to keep it dry during a rain.
My oven is 42 in. deep, 32 in. wide internal space. It takes the oven comfortably under two hours to get up to 900 degrees. Side walls are 12 inches, dome is 6 inches thick plus the insulation thickness around and above covering it on top.
I built this in my spare time. I finished this past spring. I hope this inspires others to build their very own ovens. Cook pleasantly while raining or snowing.
