Oh, absolutely! The slabs are slowly encroaching to where I want the oven. I poured another 100 sq/ft in three sections over the past 2 weeks.
I will post more pics of the progress this weekend after I clean up the mess.

Good to hear, I was getting concerned you changed your mind and poured yourself some cement shoes....

Here are a couple more pics. I poured that 5 x 8 slab just yesterday, just in time before we get some rain tonight and into the weekend.
I also tapped into and ran a copper line under the slab to supply water to the oven & bbq area.

Well, I still have perhaps another 100 sq/ft to go to reach the oven area (plus another 300+ sq/ft will eventually be poured to finish the entire patio) but since I know exactly where the oven is going I can start building up the oven foundation and bring it up about 5 feet to elevation where it will meet with the patio. But meanwhile I need to continue expanding the patio outward and sideways so my wife won't question my time being spent on that strange looking structure (round oven stand).

"bring it up about 5 feet to elevation where it will meet with the patio. "

When you get there, you may want to consider "isolating" the patio slab from the oven foundation. The loading and movement will be different enough that you will get cracking if you connect the patio slab to the oven slab. One way of doing this is to put a 1/2 inch felt band between the two.
