“In this video we show you how to build an earthen oven. Wood-fired earthen ovens are easily documented all the way back the ancient Romans. Likewise, they are easily documented in archaeological evidence and first-hand accounts from the 18th Century. We show you how easy it is to build one.
We’ve been amazed with how well earthen ovens work, so much so that some of us here at Jas built one at home. This episode deals strictly with the oven’s construction. In next week’s video, we will show you how to bake bread in an earthen oven. We will also use the oven in future videos, comparing results with those that can be achieved by baking in a cast iron Dutch oven. Stay tuned!”

Baking Bread in the Earthen Oven Part 2
Earthen ovens take about 2 hours to preheat. My all-in-one outdoor oven preheats in half an hour and so uses far less wood.
