Round Boy Pizza Oven
« on: August 19, 2010, 12:45:39 PM »
Does anybody have one of these? I talked to the guy who sells them and he makes the ovens. It's 24" by 28" 1/2 barrel design. It's pretty inexpensive but will cost me 800.00 for shipping. The stand also is an extra 250.00 but it's 2x2 piping so I guess it wont sag according to him. Any opinions?

They are for sale on eBay at the moment and very inexpensive compared to others. Shipping to my home is nearly the same as yours but, the big thing is, it's a complete oven and ready to use after one hour assembly. I'm interested and talked to Karl today, nice guy and knowledgeable about his product. He explained the construction and assembly. It is one of the few ovens that can be disassembled and moved to a new location. It's all prefab and doesn't need center support except at the front.  If I had any concerns at all it would be about heat loss through the bottom. Karl explained that the oven will easily cook pizza and then have enough heat for bread, without additional insulation. That's what I want since I don't plan on doing more than family cooking with it and the occasional pizza party.  BTW, I looked at other ovens and nearly bought a semi kit from a local masonry supply. I'm glad I waited since the cost for the kit/bundle would have been the same as the Round Boy and required much more expense and effort to finish. All I need for the Round Boy is a simple cinder block base bridged at the front (bottom open for wood storage). I will finish the base stucco and paint.

It'd be $1800 with shipping to Texas... I'll stick with my LBE for now.
