I am very jealous!
That is an awsome oven you have.
I looked at bunch of vids on how to build one a while back.I am just not sure where i would put one.

Did you make yours yourself?
It looks like yours may be able move? Heavy... but?
I have seen a few portable ones but I doubt they are comparible.

Any pics of construction?

No, this was not my first firing. A roaring initial fire that big will certainly crack your oven from thermal shock. A new oven needs to be cured with several small firings over several days initially. I've been using the oven for about 6 months now.

Yes, I built the oven from scratch last Spring. If you're interested, my complete build thread is located here:

Roady,

I'm so jealous of your oven. Wish I could have one in my back yard. That's ONE gorgeous oven!! Using my grill alone sets my neighbor off.

We had our fire pit going a few weeks ago, when the weather was in the 80's. It was perfect that night to have the pit going. She called us at 10:30pm complaining about the smoke smell bothering her. My husband invited her over. She hung up on him! LOL!!:LOL:

WOW, Very nice. My friends are impressed that I make my pizza from scratch in my oven. What would they think if I had an oven like this? You should be very proud! What a great looking oven.

Munky, that's terrible about your neighbor. When my neighbor smells my grill or smoker going he comes over to see what I'm cooking. And he's a couple hundred yards away.
