All-in-One Outdoor Oven, Stove, Grill and Smoker
Here's my version. I had some extra old bricks from a patio project that I used instead of the tile for the outside. I was going for the older look anyway. The directions from Mother Earth News were decent. I definitely used way more lightweight concrete then what the directions called for. I've used it a couple times for doing bbq and it's very functional You can put wire racks and cook multiple things at once. It stayed about 400 degrees while the coals were going which I thought was pretty good. I put a metal sheet on the top opening and was able to finish off the burgers there instead of burning them inside the firebox. The only thing left is to get a cover for the front. The chimera chimney has a stove pipe inside and then concrete is surrounding the pipe. I'm sure some heat gets lost there but generally the bricks retain the heat. I'm sure I spent close to the $300 budget even though the bricks were free.
I can't find the MEN publication that you mention.
