  1. Pretty cool, but you're placing something you're avoiding making of concrete brick (outgassing I assume) on something made of cement? Also, have you seen the bigelow brook rocket stove vids? – The guy's first burn grate made of pig iron (not assuming you have stainless angles) turned to rusty dust in a single season. Your angles are being exposed to almost the same temps and proximity. If one of those gives while this is being used…

  2. i like the design. easy to build. were you worried about the paint on the metal frame? or did it burn off during the first run?? 

  3. Thanks!! we love ours ! We removed 2 bricks from the top and then put sausage and burger in our cast iron skillet to cook some yummy toppings ! The pan covered the hole perfectly!, the beauty is you can put them back easily…And then…I got the Idea!!!- remove 1 Brick , towards the back, and then, put 2 across that hole,over it, to use as an adjustable chimney( if needed). 

  4. Waiting on demolition people to leave so I can get some old brick from the Presbyterian Church, they start hauling tomorrow to the landfill. Wonderful old brick out there, just keep your ears and eyes open, you will find some.
    Thanks for the number of brick you said it would take. Got to go hook up the trailer. Monte 

  5. I thought the second piece of dura rock could have been put over top bricks for a sealed top. And used to put pan for other items. I too though the removed brick for chimney?

  6. Thanks Eric =)
    My brother and I  "used "  to set up 2 cinder blocks made a fire set a grill over the top. this is most likely safer. L:ooks Great.  Nick. Beautiful area. guessing Minnesota or Michigan.

  7. You have a pure/white heart may you be blessed :)! Just watching you & with the dogs I feel the world is still a good place to be in with people like you in it 🙂 

  8. This is the type of DIY I love. Nothing fancy, not worrying how it "looks".. all that matters is does it work. Great job. 

  9. Hi there – really useful info – just checking on the bricks – there's a whole load of bricks nearby which are standard UK House Bricks LBC Common Brick 65mm http://www.jewson.co.uk/building-materials/bricks-blocks/bricks/clay-commons/products/BRCCY031/lbc-common-brick-65mm/  As long as it's clay I guess that will do the job ?

  10. I always treat myself to one meal on Sundays when I can have whatever I want. Usually it's pizza, which is my favorite indulgence…

      Enjoyed the project. I use old bed frames to counter angle iron prices.

  12. I love how people ask questions and i love the people positive active attitudes when making this video.They look like they having fun and thanks keep up the good work.

  13. I've watched sooooo many videos on how to make a pizza oven, and I almost gave up until watched yours! You have done a good job.. Thank you

  14. Thank for the tip is so convenient and easy and the pizza…. What a difference thank you again

  15. What..???..Say again….Dogs are barking while your talking….What.??? Try putting dogs in house for 7 mins 59 secs. Then we can here you.

  16. Good Job! If you can use a thermometer make sure that you bake the pizza at 750F. Cooking time: 2-3 minutes max.

  17. Very cool. I've been looking for a pizza oven build idea. I already make pizzas at the firehouse my own dough and sauce. Very tasty.

  18. i like how  u are nice and lufing jijiji with your wife really i like the way how u feel good luke from qatar doha

  19. DYI is great but, just a few things. 
    The bed rails are coated, and until that is burnt off I would avoid inhaling the fumes, and certinally not eat anything that would be under it.  Second, the heat will eventually cause the rails to bend and fail, so you might want a fire extinguisher close at hand.  The brick makes for a nice hearth, cement it in, with fire brick on the inside and I think you have a story……..

  20. i presume you gotta be a little careful that it doesn't fall apart while your cooking a pizza or it will taste kinda flat lolol

  21. thanks for the video!!!! only thing is at the end, not sure how your pizza taste but you looked like you about to spit it out.

  22. Loved the video..very down to earth…loved the puppies too…lol I will be having my husband build one this weekend. 🙂 thanks for sharing.

  23. I totally enjoyed the diy project and will be doing my own oven soon.  Also, you and your wife have an awesome vibe, enjoy watching you guys! Cute dogs too. 🙂

  24. Hi guys,
    Thanks for the idea and the video. Nice and simple! I just finished my own based on your design and it worked a treat so cheers again. Here's mine if you're interested. Marc


  25. Eric: God bless you! I have not laughed in SO LONG!!! The flaming log falling on your pizza was hilarious! You have the courage to show what can and does happen to many of us. Life is not always perfect and sharing that is appreciated. I like your attitude. You are so relatable.

  26. What's also cool is that I have one of the round smoker type Barbeque ( I bought at Wal Mart for $39) and have a round pizza stone I put on top and have made Brick oven pizza in it! In case anyone has one or is interested in another way? But thanks this was cool!

  27. Love your channel. Love all the eclectic projects and such. Every time I see a new video, I can't help but think you sound like Donnie Wahlberg. Do you ever get that?
    Keep 'em coming!

  28. Can anyone suggest a good base/table/surface to build on. I'm thinking in the region of 100 bricks is petty heavy!

  29. So you use a chisel for scrapping concrete off your bricks? Lol! He must have read that in his book. Pizza looks good, but do some tool research before your next video.

  30. Good job, simple, efficient and cheap. I've been interested in and been studying Pompeii style ovens for a couple years now, but I just can't bring myself to spend thousands of dollars on something that is not always going to be in use. You have inspired me to scale back those plans for a fixed oven to one mounted on a steel base with good wheels so I can't pull it out of the way when not in use. Mine will use refractory bricks and motor though.

  31. That's gotta be one of the best hacks of all time,..I might be a little biased since pizza is my # 1 favorite.
    Just have one curious Q: Would using a pizza stone make it any better for ppl who have one?

  32. my hubby owns a pizza place(without a brick oven) cant wait to show him this….u amaze me,found yr site 3 hrs ago and im hooked you are a creative cool dude!thank you for all your fantastic ideas

  33. Nice, but who has one of those saws lying around to cut those angle irons? It would start getting really expensive unless you already have tools. I'd love to make one otherwise.

  34. I constructed this at my campsite last year and it worked great. Had two pizza parties with 30+ people and made pizzas for everyone. Never a problem and always fun!

  35. You have the nice and apparently very healthy and happy dogs, I just felt that, I don't have a dog but I love them specially like yours, give them some pizza pleeeeeeeeeeease, the smell of pizza make them crazy, just kidding, by the way, why not covering the bricks with some mortar or concrete to protect them from falling by accident and better sealing too.

  36. you have a nice fire going and then someone falls against the rack and the stove collapses … maybe a child! burning wood, hot heavy stones … that could be uncomfortable 😕😕😕?

  37. my favorite part of all your videos is when you have to stop what you're doing and throw the ball for the dogs….more dog ball throwing while DIYing! =D

  38. can you build a brick oven heated by aluminium foundry? I saw an article about it at your site sent in by your reader. if that oven can reach 700F, it is worth the effort to build it. thanks

  39. I wonder if you had some sort of door, even just a metal one that leans up to the opening, if it would help?
