The word is  versatility! Schlepping g packing unpacking is the well shall I say chlenging  part  of the mobile buss. Tr his makes a huge difference trust me you will see it on most mobiles within a few years promise

As you can see from my pics I used a wood surface for for the landing (Not the wisest of choices) and with keeping with the theme of the SF ovens I need to use something else. Does anyone have any Ideas as to what type of material I could use that will hold up to the mobile abuse without cracking. The wood isn't bad but with continuous use I'm not sure how long it will last.

Thought the small round pieces of granite would be fine. Not sure about the larger shelf type. Seems to me it would eventually crack from constant road vibration.  What other materials are out there that would hold up to the heat and the vibration?

Good job on the build. Been following it for a while now. Thought I would pop in an share my 2 cents knowledge.

Wood, will burn eventually, with that high heat.

Try to use stainless if you can. Will take the heat and the abuse from the road.
If you want granite, use the 12" tiles. Easy to cut, not too heavy and easy to install. You can do an under frame with angle iron. Try to use 2" angles. Then put hardy back at the bottom, and do a scratch and brown over it with diamond lath.
Once dry lay your granite tiles, very tight, no grout in between.

Hope that helps.

Why not blued steel? I think it would look better than stainless.

Ive been reviewing my expenses on my latest build. This particular oven has a cooking surface thats 34" in diameter. Compared to my first build (47" dia) I have cut the costs significantly.

How much of a loss in cooking surface does that equate to in the number of pizzas cooked... Does this seem too small?

I think that surface area is relative to the needs of the oven and or the skill of the operator. My oven in SC was 33" and I never had a problem keeping up with the crowd...usually between 8-16 peeps, a few times 20+.   My CT oven was 38"...same thing, never had an issue.   In a commercial environment? Different need, different story. My .02......

Back to work on the oven!

Finished the sidewall insulation and put the first coat of mortor on the hood.  Hope to finish the rest of the insulation on the dome tomorrow. I should be ready to put the final finish coat of red by the end of next week!
