Traditional Brick Ovens ‘TBO’ was established quite simply, from the love of cooking and entertaining with family and friends.
After 12 years in the Construction and Landscaping Industries, I found my past experience was totally invaluable. This is when it all started! We were hooked on the flavours and versatility of traditional wood fired cooking. After we experimented with recipes, cooking times and varieties of wood, we quickly realised the flavours were unbeatable.
Do you want the ultimate in ENTERTAINING, LIFESTYLE & FOOD? Away to enhance your space and create ambience? Then call in and see us at showroom or give us a call to make an appointment to discuss your options.
Looking back now, almost 10 years from the success of our first oven, we’ve be lucky to have created so many memories and laughs with our families and friends.
My only warning is, it’s an engaging and social passion to have. So if you don’t want guests knocking at your door, pushing themselves in to be entertained at yours.. best just keep to your BBQ!

As with all construction projects, preparation and planning is key. Our ovens are durable and can be positioned undercover or fully exposed to the elements.
A solid foundation for the base of your oven is the first step in the building process. Construction of a purpose built masonry base is the next. The final finish may include one of our many stone cladding options, granite, stainless steel, tiling or a simple rendered finish.
Your custom oven will be totally hand built. Using only
A grade materials, including a superior oven floor using 50mm thick floor tiles made to our specifications, to ensure many years of use. We offer you complete peace of mind, knowing with our experience in building more than 350 ovens, we understand ovens!

Wood fired ovens are a favorite for restaurants that specialise in pizza, although they are not limited to pizza alone. Becoming more popular in pubs, hotels and cafes, not only are traditional ovens attractive and economical to run, they create a sense of atmosphere that is only possible with this form of cooking. The versatility and exclusivity of this cooking method is certainly worth considering.
It’s never too early to make contact with us regarding your plans for a commercial oven. Like any great build, it’s all in the planning. Oven capacity is a large consideration, positioning, extraction design and flue requirements are just as imperative.
We’d be happy to listen to your ideas, whether it be your premises or our central located showroom in Kent Town. Contact Glen to schedule a commercial consultant. You’ll be glad you did.
Traditional Brick Ovens custom build commercial ovens are as individual as our clients, making no two ovens the same. Capacity and aesthetics are both important consideration, as is the engineering of your extraction and flue requirements.

Wood Oven Kits
As wood fired ovens are fast becoming a must have for those who love to cook great food. Whether you entertain all the time or just now and then, there’s an oven suitable for all requirements. Large or small, metal, masonry, mobile or fixed.
As we are spoilt for choice with the vast number of prefabricated ovens, it pays to do some research. Consider the overall support on offer, check the retailers credentials, what materials are used, what components are included in your purchase. Only then you can make an educated decision and be clear on what you are purchasing.
In our years of experience we’ve found the price point is often indicative of quality and service. If it’s too good to be true then it probably is! When comparing, ensure you’re comparing like with like (i.e. you wouldn’t compare a top brand appliance to a generic one).
Essentially the majority of WFO’s work in the same way, however fabrication, insulation properties and aesthetics can vastly differ purchase price, running costs and maintenance.
Considering a pre-made already assembled oven? Best you check the access requirements, delivery and forklift or crane hire cost. An assembled oven can weigh from 250 kg -1 tonne and can be a logistical nightmare.
Should you need advise or be undecided on what’s right for you and your family, feel free to contact us we’d be happy to share our knowledge.
