  • Hello, from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

    I am currently experimenting with a 8 inch rocket stove and a quick build brick oven. I have successfully baked pizzas, bread, burgers and chicken in my oven. The key to successful oven baking using a rocket stove is a steel diffuser plate which covers a good proportion of the floor of the brick oven and a relatively low 8 inch oven ceiling. I can exceed 800 degrees F on the floor of my oven and more than 400 on the oven ceiling in less than 30 minutes with a small handful of wood. I am now thinking of building a brick vault oven inside an oil drum to replace the current square brick oven. I am looking for suggestions on how to attach brick to the inside of the drum? I have ordered an infrared temp gun which has the capacity to measure temperatures to 1700 F, as my current temperature probes will only read to 800F and I think I am getting more heat in the oven than what I am now capable of measuring. Thanks for all the good information on this site.
