Good looking oven.  What's the interior diameter?  Are you planning on insulating it more?

The oven looks fantastic Fran.

I am happy to help in any way I can.

But I take my hat off to you for building the oven with such great success given the limited access to materials and equipment. You have been very resourceful and quite talented with the execution.

Let us know how your first event goes this weekend.

Much success to you and your business.

having driven around a lot of costa rica - I cant imagine trying to pull a brick oven. The roads at some point are barely drivable. My GPS actually told me at one point - road sinking , as is present tense. Good luck , what part of CR are you in  ? Will this be a commercial venture ?

So true! My wife and I rented an economy car to get around the west coast... it didn't take long for us to realize we needed 4x4 since the maps don't show river crossings. We had a great experience in the end.

Best of luck to you Fran, oven looks great

thank you people for the good wishes!!!!!
so to answer some questions:
the oven internal diameter is 90 cm
the cast high aluminia and ss needles, isolated with ceramic blanket and boards
the base with firebricks...
the idea is to make a little business me and my wife
streets hier are more than bad yes  ^^^ the holes and stones sometimes 4 - 6 inch deep or high so I will not run with the oven no
but drive in first gear, or second, for the first 10 kilometers till I reach the pavement street!!!!! It will be an adventure yes. The trailer suspension goes smooth enough I hope  8)

I'm a bit jealous pal, that looks wonderful.
Dough, stretch, sauce, cheese; check.
