    Re: oven position

    Quick answer would be yes. as per the plans under tips and hints

    "When selecting the direction your oven will face, consider
    making sure that your opening does not face possible
    winds, which might disrupt your cooking and fire
    management."

        But in many cases you want your oven facing in a certain direction for aesthetics and for practical reasons. So if you have a constant wind problem you may need to balance those elements and reach a compromise.

            You could build a section of fence to screen the oven area if the winds become a problem.
