Title: Reusing salvaged bricks for the exterior.

Description: Rado:
Last year I began my saga. I liked your design and copied much of it into my oven. I used salvaged brick for the exterior - different sizes and shapes made it interesting (and slow). Inside I used new firebrick and advised procedures.
I live in Vermont, USA and used slate made sense as a fire proof roofing material with lead flashing and ridge cap. I chose not to cover the chimney - I might use a piece of slate between firings to keep the rain and snow out, we'll see.

Thanks for your help when I got started. Here are some "larger" pictures. I haven't taken any significant food pictures - too hungry I guess. I'll send some soon. We make a lot of roasts - beef, chicken, pork, lamb; stews; baked beans and other vegetable dishes; breads - all types including flat; and various pizzas. Hopefully, I'm going to do sausage and onions this week. Thanks for your response and keep on spreading the good work.
