My Portable Oven
« on: June 22, 2011, 07:30:40 AM »
I'm sure many of you have seen this oven here before, but I know we all like photos so I thought I'd share some from the graduation party I cooked for last weekend. Altogether, I baked 23 14 inch pies over about 4 hours time. The dough was a basic Lehmann N.Y. style, 60% hy. using KASL. The oven was running right around 575-600 on the bricks.

Steve,

Those are some great looking pizzas. I assume that the woman in the photo shown loading a pizza is your daughter 8).

I love that setup!  Thanks for sharing.

From looking at the pictures closely, I believe you have an SP10-type gas heat source on the underside and wood-fired backside.

Steve,

Great looking pies on your portable oven!  I am always fascinated how talented and handy you are in designing ovens.  Your lovely wife is going to love Peterís comment.

Great job with your portable oven and pies!  :)  :chef:

It's not cast. The riser is made from 6" 20 ga. flat stock. The top is the original grill top. Both have a covering of 1/2 inch mesh hardware cloth(metal wire) and a coating of perl-crete. There are also 5 fire-brick "splits" mounted under the dome.
