Barrel Oven — 5 Comments

  1. Wonderful!!! I saw your article in Mother Earth News about building the all-in-one grill, smoker, oven, etc. and I fell in love with it. I had to laugh when I saw that you were the author of the article. I think something like this for canning large amounts at one time would work well in a summer kitchen alongside your all-in-one!

    • My stove has an adjustable shelf that can be lowered so the bath canner is down in the firebox. We’ve never used it for that, but the stove was designed for that in mind. The size is perfect.

  2. Oh sure, right after I place my order for a pressure cooker/canner…
    you post this coolness. ;)

    I would love to have one of these in my backyard…

    In fact… I feel (yet another) project coming on. We’re working on building a “support camp” for families who want to learn to build ISBU homes and then adopt sustainable lives thru well-grounded practices.

    This would work splendidly.


    • People keep coming up with ways to build things at such low cost that it’s hard to resist. How can you say no to a stove that costs $50 or so and keeps all the heat from cooking outdoors?
