These are just really neat to have in your yard for out-door cooking. They make an awesome bread, too!

There are many designs for these.

Once while visiting Taos Pueblo, I discovered many yards have them and the people we visited used them regularly. Our host made THE most delicious Indian flat bread that I've ever eaten!

This one is a cob oven so the materials are a bit different, but the construction method is the same pretty much as the adobe oven above.
I like the good instructions here:

It won't let me post 3 videos at a time in one post. I get a warning that I have too few characters :o

Then subsequent posts won't make the imbed..so I don't know what the deal is :)

Actually I have all my materials sitting here waiting to become an oven. All I need is the time to get it done.

I've had THE most delicious breads come out of those ovens! If they're done right, you can actually fire clay in them, too. At least they did down at Taos Pueblo.

Sorry for repeating myself! I just scrolled down to the last post and didn't re-read my previous posts.

It does bare repeating I guess lol!

Yes, it's adobe mud which is mixed usually with staw and water to make a mud-pie :)

That is pretty neat. I do not have clay here though; mainly loam soil.
