Hello! Not sure if I"m posting this in the right place but I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what to build in an outdoor kitchen? I will be building a cob oven, and can put a grilling rack over the fire place. I have seen some things about building a small cob circle that you can place a pot in for boiling stuff, but does anyone have any information on how to build this or what it is called so I can search? Any other suggestions would be so appreciated! THanks!!

There's a cool article in the current issue of Mother Earth News about building one of those wood fired dome style outdoor ovens, the kind that just have an opening in the front and no chimney or flue. It's a neat article, and apparently you can get them screaming hot for things like pizza, and then they will stay hot or warm for a day or two, so you can bake bread in it the next day and then later on still use residual heat to dehydrate and dry things like peppers and herbs.
 
I am going to test your electrical conductivity with this tiny ad:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
