The Hard Brick Cafe Place

G’day Rado,
here is a copy of the invitation to my wife and 2 boys combined birthdays, to which 70 people turned up to view the mto and have a pizza. The oven is affectionately known as THE HARD BRICK CAFE and the place as CHERNOBYL, for a major pizza meltdown.

Here is a couple of photos of my completed oven built in Waikerie South Australia by myself, (Bill wearing a black singlet) and a good mate Rainsey (David). It is built out of 100+ years old south Australian red bricks. We have cooked many successful meals; pizzas, roasts, etc. in it and it is a wonderful social way to do things. We fed 70 people pizzas on the grand opening. I have never laid a brick in my life so the process was quite daunting because no 2 bricks of that era were the same size or shape. Thanks for the plans and instructions. The oven has impressed every body that has seen it. Hope to get a picture on your website so that I can do a bit of bragging.

Had inch thick lamb chops in the oven last night and everyone thought they were the best chops they had ever had. I am thinking that my 6 burner BBQ is going to be put on the redundancy list as not further required.

  1. Nice one Bill…inspirational – I am getting together my own ideas and will start work on my own after seeing yours (might not be using the 100 year old bricks though!) – Mark, Brisbane.
