Finished my backyard Cob oven project

Took about two months to complete. I'd work on it on my rare days off and after work. For the most part I'm pretty happy the way things turned out.

It looks fantastic. You did a great job.

I own a 2 family house and we live on the first floor, luckily for me my 2nd floor tenant does masonry. He helped big time on the base

Nice piece of work.  The brickwork I think I understand, but could you tell us a little more about the upper portion?

 

How is it constructed, and is it hollow to conduct heat through the wall? And, what does "Cob" oven mean? A national style off cooking, or what?

 

Thanks

Based on many earthen ovens, make a fire in the upper portion, let it burn down to coals and move it to one side then cook. Or remove the coals completely and cook.

The upper or "cob" portion is hollow earthen and 100 percent all natural. Mud, clay, straw etc. I Friggin love the thing already. Makes some righteous pizza and artisan loaves.
