Come join us as we build a cob pizza oven and rocket stove hybrid which will also be used to efficiently warm our hot tub in the winter! 

Cob pizza ovens are a great introduction to cob building and a terrific way to bake pizza, bread, or whatever yummy bakeables you can think of! Below is a picture of a cob oven that was used to cook pizzas at Crestone Brewing Company in beautiful Crestone, CO. Rocket stoves are a super-efficient way of producing heat for many uses.
