Brick bread oven

Does anyone know of any good backyard bread oven plans? I have read all types of reviews for different oven looking for any experience with them..

The book Bread Builders is really good if you want to build your own wood fire oven, plus it's a great reference for learning how to make sourdough hearth breads in general.
 
Mugnaini sells pre-fab inserts that you then build a structure around or hire someone to do so. This is the oven that I have at Stella and it is amazing.

Forno Bravo also sells kits and I think they have blue prints too. What makes their website really fun though is their great forum that is packed with avid wood fire oven owners.

I highly recommend the Forno Bravo also. I don't have a pizza oven yet but found them to be a good community and a great supplier.
 
Check out the book section of their store.  They offer many e-books free (or with a $10 charitable donation as an option) -- wood-fire cookbooks as well as a "how to build a Forno Bravo oven" construction manual.

p.s.  An important decision is on the usage of such an oven... which drives the style... and the building costs... and the operational costs... and heat management techniques.
 
Basically (and probably too simplistically):
 
bread and/or high volume leads one toward barrel/vault design
 
pizza and/or shorter amount of time and/or lower volume for heating up the oven drives toward dome design.

I’ve seen various TV shows where a health inspector uses a device to measure the cleanliness of a kitchen surface.

Does anyone know about where these devices can be found?

Is there an updated link to take the quiz for the knife skills podcast?  There was one given in the comments section of the podcast, but it is a broken link

Thanks

Hi I had succes The first time I watch the video on sourdough starter and how to make a boule, it must have been a fluke as now 2 and half weeks of trying and almost 4kgs of flour later I cannot get my starter to float, I told 2 of my friends about the videos and they have been trying for a week and they havent been able to make the starter float either, 2 of us are using filtered water and 1 is using rain water so I doubt if its the water, we are in winter in Melbourne Australia so the temp inside the house is min 8c max 19c weve all been following the instructions closely, Ive even tried

For a while, I've wanted to experiment with a "Peanut Butter and Jelly Bread." Given how well the Brioche Hamburger Buns have turned out, with all their buttery goodness, I'm considering using Jacob's Brioche loaf recipe as a starting point. 

I have googled around for existing "Peanut Butter and Jelly Bread" recipes, but most of them seem just to swirl the peanut butter and jelly into the dough, producing something that would be difficult to slice, toast and handle.
