Last year I bought one of these -

http://www.walmart.c.....ven/895626

At first glance I thought it was going to be more an idea than useful thing, but at less than $30 I was willing to give it a go. What a happy surprise - it works! Its small so forget putting a turkey in it (lol), but it bakes biscuits, I've made meatloaf in it, reheated 'mustgos' for a lunch and it also serves to direct more heat into the room instead of up the flue. Its my winter time compliment to my DIY solar oven. Love the savings on propane and not using the microwave so much too.

I did have an in-flue oven years back which worked marvelously, but donated it to another 'homesteader' when they claimed the neat old 1930s Tappan (with 'trash burner') that we didn't bring into our newly finished house. And I DID cook turkeys in that one too. (you should have seen the looks I got when I tape measured the turkeys to find which would fit πŸ˜‰

Hey, it works for us right in the house too! Our wood stove may be in the 'living room', but its not all that far from the kitchen and dining table too.

I saw the Baker's Salute oven on Lehman's and it certainly is a much expanded version of the little old in-flue oven we had in our little 'cabin' at our previous place -

flue-oven.jpg

(sorry for less wonderful picture - OLD photo and blown up to show as best I can). Basically this was like a 5 gallon metal can turned on its side with an inner cylinder added to make the 'oven'. The flue gases passed between the 2 (sealed) walls and heated the oven. The picture only shows the back side of the oven with crank handle that would move a bar around in between the two walls and help to remove creosote build up.Β 

KVR, how does one clean the 'flue' area that your Baker's Salute operates on? The Lehman picture seems to show an access port on the right side but the text on that page mentions nothing about cleaning.

Hmmm, it seems that there is a homemade one like we used to have on You Tube -

Don't see a flue cleaning option and the yard where the video is made doesn't build 'attention to detail' confidenceEmbarassed. But one can get the general idea of operation and size.

there is a clean out on each side and one in the back, we just use a wet dry vac and suck it out, it's pretty easyΒ really
