A new portable trailer oven
3 Attachment(s)
Here is a new trailer oven from The Fire Within, a partner who makes portable catering ovens using FB ovens. They are showing this oven at Pizza Expo in Las Vegas 2009, March 10-12.

Very cool. Check out the custom metal vent and landing piece that they have fabricated.

That is cool! I like the metal grape vines - nice touch. James, are you headed to Vegas? I wasn't aware of such an event - too short of a notice to make it, maybe next year. You think they would have scheduled it for Pi day.

The oven looks great. I can't wait to see it next week at the Pizza expo.

I have pretty much the same oven - and it is my favorite oven out of all 4 that I have (1 mobile, 1 backyard, 2 restaurant). It makes amazing pizzas. I finally started marketing my mobile oven ( and I have been totally swamped. Here are some links to recent coverage:

Looks amazing. I saw my first and only portable oven when I was visiting the farmers market in Boulder last year. How prone are portable ovens like these to cracks and fissures from movement on the road? Do the FB ovens (with fewer joints to worry about) hold up better on trailers than homemade ones? What extra precautions do you need to take if you're going to go portable?

Jay - Great to see you are busy with the mobile oven. I liked the press you are getting. I was interviewed last week by our paper and it should be in next Thursdays paper. I will post a link when it comes out.

Hi guys,

I'm not going to be there, but say hello to Joseph for me.

Also, we have a Modena G oven (gas/wood combo) in the GI Metal booth live and baking pizza -- GI Metal sponsors the Italian Squadra Nationale Acrobati Pizzaioli. Should be fun to watch. FB will be everywhere!

Jay, excellent marketing and I'm glad to hear the trailer is working out so well.

Carlos, I think it is true that the FB precast ovens hold up better to the jostling of trailer life with fewer seams. The Fire Within uses the Premo oven. That said, I have also seen trailer ovens with the Artigiano, but that is a professionally made brick dome that is very solid.

Enjoy your weekends everybody.
