Drum Oven

The best thing about having a drum oven is actually being able to make bread and cookies- The worst thing about having a drum oven is the work that it takes to actually bake whatever you are baking.  This oven is placed over a fire and then we keep the fire hot enough for the time it takes to bake the food.  That’s all just fire and a metal drum with some sand in the bottom.  Sharon and I made this drum oven out of a kerosene drum, some sheet metal and pop rivets.  Don’t ask me how we did it but I think it turned out alright.  We even got ambitious and bent metal into pan shapes so that we could bake the bread and cookies.  Other than a burned arm no one was harmed in the making of the drum oven.  And it made some very delicious peanut butter cookies last week- this week chocolate chip!
