I'm getting excited to try out this Pizza Party oven!
I have plans to build a permanent Forno Bravo oven in 5 years when my wife and I buy a new house, but we can't do anything where we live now. I have a wooden deck at my current house which is where I want to set up the oven. A friend (Wayno on the forum) recently bought a Forno Bravo Primavera which is a tad smaller than the Pizza Party (24" vs 27.5"), but a LOT heavier... he had to reinforce his deck and rent a forklift to get the oven in place... something that I'm unwilling to do! I checked the FedEx tracking information and the Pizza Party shipment weighs a total of 190 pounds (all pieces and parts). From what I've seen on the website, the actual Pizza Party oven only weighs 110 pounds with the floor bricks removed... my wife and I should be able to carry it into position and the weight won't be a problem for my deck.
I also ordered a Woodhaven log rack to install next to the oven (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0009IMDBW/?tag=pizzamaking-20
). The Woodhaven unit looks very sturdy and is made of heavy gauge welded steel. It should hold 1/8 cord (1/4 face cord) of split wood and keep the top layer of wood dry. Again, weight should not be an issue for my deck, and it will look great sitting next to the oven.
FedEx tracking shows the oven arriving Thursday of next week, firewood will be delivered on Saturday. I'll try to make pizza Saturday night. I'll have my camera in-hand to document the entire process of taking delivery, setup, and use of the oven.
