Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Interested in cooking your own pizza, flatbread and more outside in your woodlands?? Well here one of our Agents, David Alty assisted by some very helpful volunteers, will show you how to build a cob oven, for you to do just that. You will see all the different stages of production from creating the cooking floor using wine bottles as insulation to mixing clay and creating your correctly proportioned cob oven.

In all my years in the masonry craft I have never seen mud mixed with the tarp method you used!
Loved the glass bottles as insulators.

Why not use very thin ply board as a former? Sand in your pizza is not nice for your teeth and could cause permanent damage. Teeth are like pearls, take care of them

Why not put the chimney near the front to let the smoke out above the cook?

You use earth clay not manufactured clay and it should be wet when adding to the sand!

That's why they use wet newspapers, which he explains in the video.
