Beautiful Beef: Meals To Add Wow Back Into Family Dinner

I confess that I would never make a good vegetarian as I love my meat too much. I enjoy checking out new recipes for meat, and a friend of mine recently joked that I should start a blog about my meat obsession. So, making a meat blog is what I have done. If you lack inspiration for fast, tasty ways you can turn a slab of meat into something your family will ask for more of, then you need to read my posts. I promise you won't need to spend a fortune on fancy spices, but you too can make a meal worthy of bragging about.

DIY step-by-step guide On How to Make Your Own Outdoor Pizza Oven

Paying for professional services to have your outdoor pizza oven built or buying it can be an extravagant expense. With simple materials such as brick tiles, cement, and others at your disposal, you will be able to cut down on such costs by developing an outdoor pizza oven on your own. You create a new look for your backyard with this permanent feature and make it a focal point for friends and family to gather. Be confident and follow these steps for a successful project.

Building the Base for Your Oven

A strong base is an important part of your outdoor pizza oven. It prevents you from having to get down on your knees in order to make pizza, and controls ground water from leaking into your oven. To kick off your project, locate the exact spot at your backyard where you intent the pizza oven to be and place a concrete pad. Ensure a flat and even ground beneath the pad using a level. With the concrete pad in place, you can now stack cinder blocks to your desired height in an L-shape. Create a sturdy structure by staggering the blocks, but ensure to leave the holes at the edges exposed. This can serve well as the base of your outdoor pizza oven.

Covering Your Base

Brick tiles will make your base more appealing. They also provide you with a durable finish without necessarily laying the bricks. Clear manufacturer's instructions will guide you on how much brick is needed to cover your base. Apply a good amount of mixed cement or mortar to the back of your brick tiles using a trowel. Press the brick tiles on the cinderblock base. You might think of using spacers to ensure the bricks are well spaced. When the mortar is completely dry, fill all the spaces remaining with cement using a grout bag or a small trowel.

Making the Counter Top

You will need a strong counter top for your outdoor oven to sit on. Start off by cutting a piece of plywood to the intended counter top size. Attach an exterior grade wood around your plywood with galvanised nails and glue. Place the plywood frame on top of your base then rebar on the wood to make a crisscross pattern, necessary to support the concrete and prevent it from separation or cracking. Mix concrete and pour on the frame. You can even out the concrete and give it a flat finish using a wood board.
