Saw this in a Facebook "we know what you want" ad. http://m.ebay.com/itm/181748560050?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368
Thought with some permie minded recipes a person might sell a few.

I checked the link and they pointed me toward similar products. That made me think of the pizza oven for sale on the side of the road in Connecticut or New Hampshire, which made me think of the ungodly cost to ship something like this.
Which made me come up with an awesome marketing idea!
Make a real nice pizza oven, haul it down to your local garden center, maybe the lumber yard. Cut a deal with owners/managers. Customer can take that one, get a custom one done, maybe built on site.
.
I can smell the pizza now.

On Saturdays fire it up and serve fresh wood fired pizza or bread. Probably sell one or two a weekend all Summer. Too many orders? Time to raise your price.

Follow this link to Paul interviewing Ernie on the better pizza oven design. https://permies.com/t/52989/wood-burning-stoves/double-chamber-cob-oven-plans#430919

The designs I have looked at for a bee hive or tunnel type oven require mass.
For one is really heating up the brick and using the heat radiating from the brick to cook.
In some designs the fire can even die down and you can still bake bread due to the radiating heat.

So with something light enough to move around you generally see propane used to heat. This is more like a conventional oven.
