‘This oven is so well insulated that the owner says he can have ‘a roaring fire for over 3 hours at over 1000 degrees inside and yet the outside brick surface temps are less than 90 degrees, which is what the air temp is during the day outside.’ Via: fornobravo.com
This community bread brick oven was built for the Montgomery’s Inn Museum in Toronto, ON. Although the primary use is intended for bread, the oven is done in half-mass construction equivalent to a standard pizza oven mass, since the oven is intended for a variety of uses and bread baking is not anticipated to exceed 2-3 batches from a single firing. The oven core is heavily insulated for exceptional heat retention and even baking. The oven is finished with reclaimed clay brick and stucco with integral roof done in cedar shingles with cedar fascia and soffit. stovemaster.com
