Gotta love this site!  
I also can't keep up and I'm all over the place.
It's an adventure here that never ends.

Can't wait to see what Norma and Steve come up with for their 22" LBE build as well.  

texmex,

I almost can't keep up with all that is on the forum either.  Steve is still busily working on his WFO to get it finished. His WFO is really looking great, but it takes a lot of work. If I had an extra Weber grill, Steve and I have a friend that comes to market almost every week and he has built many different kinds of WFO and some even from a washtub.   :-D  He said a Weber grill could be used in many ways to make a pizza oven.  I wish I had a picture of the WFO that our friend built in the last few years.  I think Steve has a picture of it, if he can find it.  I also think our friend could build something out of almost nothing, because he has before.

Norma, that is great to hear.  I have no doubt your Weber will be a mean pizza making machine by the time you're done with it, cuz you've got that stick-to-it-iveness like none I've seen before!  You go, girl!,
I am about to attempt building something out of nothing myself...and I've seen plenty of that out there on the web, so I think I'll do okay.

FIrst thing I gotta do is step away from the computer, ignore Chuck (my starter) pleading to be made into dough, and get busy moving stones and brick from areas around my yard to one spot so I can SEE what I've got, and figure what more I'll need. 

Good luck to us all!

texmex,

I hope my Weber grill will be a mean pizza machine, when it is finished.  8) I saw your thread where you are gathering material to make your own pizza oven.  You are inspirational to me too!  :) Hope your pizza oven, WFO, or whatever you are building works out well.  I was at market this afternoon, to get some extra things done, and took some pictures of how my deck oven works and maybe get some ideas how the deck oven can relate to the Weber grill.  I never really thought about it before, but my top deck has less clearance (or head space) than my bottom deck does.  I dont know if that if because heat rises or not, but will have to think about that.  I also wanted to measure how much space there is to slide a pizza on both decks.  There are some kind of metal channels, on both sides of my deck oven.  I guess they are to channel the heat up. 

I also should stay away from the computer and this forum more, too! It is too addicting.  Lol, you always make me chuckle from yours posts about building your own oven, Charlie, and other things you do.  You also have a stick to it attitude.  Great to hear that.  :)

I say best of luck to anyone that tries to build their own oven, grills, WFOs, or anything related to pizza.

Saturday Coffee,

Thanks for all the links to help Steve and me with my Weber mod.  :) Steve is busy right now on another project, but I will show him these links.  Steve is the person that is going to help me with the Weber mod.  I think the link that you posted for http://www.epicportions.com/2010/03/25/the-frankenweber/ does look a lot like Steve's mod he did on his portable oven in the one picture. I will ask Steve if that is his mod or another persons mod.
