Yes, cracks are normal and will happen because the oven does shift with the heat expansion. Larger cracks are normal also. As long as the oven doesnt fall apart its good i guess.

Since i have sooo much for the beautiful bricks we created a planter/brick wall. Made a form to pour a concrete footing.



Concrete poured.




Three rows of brick laid

Man I love this stuff! From a mini WSMs to heavy metal offsets to outdoor recreation areas to these great outdoor cooking areas with wood ovens and pits. Where else could the common thread of BBQ and outdoor cooking come together than this forum?

When you get serious about starting this project i highly recommend you surf around the Fornobravo site and download the building plans.
Thanks for getting back to me. I've joined Fornobravo's foeum and have been lurking mostly. I've seen your threads. There's ao much info out there it's confusing. I'm currently reading Kiko Denzer's "Build Your Own Earth Oven" (which was reccommended, and ia better than I thought it would be - but not what I want).

Anyways, I dont want to hijack your thread. Great build! Did I understand you correctly that you're using Fornobravo's plans?

No worries at all. Let me know when you plan to build and i can help you through it. Ive looked thru the plans but its not needed. Its good to skim through it to make sure you have everything down and materials in order. However you will learn mostly from the forum and talking to other builders.

Check out this famous builder's method which looks pretty sloppy but he uses a sand form in this set of photos. I like that refractory liquid mortar he pours over the entire dome. Seems like his whole build procedure saves a lot of time.

You can basically build a dome with a simple entry and no vent. Fresh air enters through the lower area of the entry while the hot gases exhausts out through the upper portion of the entry. You can singe your eyebrows if get too close to the entry though...
I just opened this link (I knew I had skipped over a couple of them and thought I'd go back and check 'em out. I also had a chance to read Thermal Mass'es Thread. All good stuff... Thank for posting!
