dome versus barrel oven
From the WFO board
Posted by g-man
I am getting ready to make a brick oven, i have researched this exstensively.
I read articles that barrel ovens are great for cooking and breads, but dome ovens are the best for pizza, obviously the barrel is much easier to construct, would it be beneficial to create as much dome as possible in the barrel roof, are there any minimum or maximum ratios for dome heights?
