Default Re: portable oven

How's it goin guys, good news! I got the horse box, it will be delivered on monday, just a matter of adapting it to fit the oven and making the oven presentable, getting my insurance and licence. I'm confident ill be up and running in 3 weeks! Fingers. crossed

I don't plan to carry food stuffs or equipment that will come into contact with food in the trailer with the exception of the oven. the trailer is only for the oven and gazebo, everything else will go in the back of the van.

That certainly is good news. It looks like your plans this year will finally come true. I suppose you have to do special wiring harness and hitch or was your van already set up to pull a trailer? Do horse boxes in Ireland have surge or electric brakes?

Roll on and roll off. The trailer is quite old, so it is the old style breaking system whatever its called. There is a towbar and the van has the loom for the lights

I have mulled over the advertising options, but i havnt made a decision yet. The magnetic signs are a probability though and i scavenged 2 of those curvy flag pole things. On a previous post you said mikku that people in japan will employ custom, i have noticed that people will gravitate toward stalls when they see other people taking an interest. When I'm up and running hopefully friendswill come and fill this role

If the ovens properly dry and you only use properly seasoned and dry wood a bit of smoke at flash up that's all.
The punters will enjoy the Whiff and I say that again Whiff of woodsmoke. They'll find it appealing not overpowering.
There are wood fired ovens at the markets here and they have no problems.
Yes I always check them out and see what they are doing but keep my mouth shut and eyes open, I think we all would like to go Pro in our hearts.
Regards Dave

This was probably one of my deleted posts, but I was commenting on the patience of the Japanese. They will wait in line for anything! They just stand and wait and wait, and wait....this is really true when a new romen restaurant opens...I think it is in their nature to wait in lines (like something they were taught in school!) The remark I made was "if you hired 3 people to start a line" it would just keep growing. I did not intend you to hire anyone but just the idea of it... there could be nothing except a doorway, and if three people started waiting near the doorway--others would get in line just to see what the others were waiting for!

Personally, I do not think you will have any problem attracting customers. You will have an oven with an open fire going---that will attract attention. Then you will be putting things into it and making your specialty---that will attract attention... Then people will be commenting how good your stuff tastes---so that will attract attention. Just hope you bring enough ingredients along to keep up with the demand.

What is the price going to be for a pizza? And what else are you thinking of making?

In Minnesota, we had something called a "pasty"--A small shop in my hometown would make them up with a crust that started at about 8" round but was folded in half with meat, potatoes, onions, carrots, a gravy like substance inside for moisture. They had a hard time keeping up with demand. A normal pasty is usually made in a pie dish- upper and lower crust then filled with the meats and veggies. The whole thing would bake in an oven--then pieces (pie shaped would be cut and served). I've thought of making the rounds- folder over for sale here but would have to adjust the
ingredients to the local.

If you want to share a photo of your horse trailer when it arrives, please do so. I think there are a lot of people interested in your progress. cheers!

I do a market once a month and I'm acutely aware of the smoke problem. If you are vigilant you can fire the thing virtually smoke free except for the first 5 mins. If the flame dies it will be smokey but you just give it a blast with your blow pipe to restore the flame, otherwise there will be smoke. If you get complaints, and a rival food vendor might easily use that as an excuse if they think you are taking more business than them, then you may be asked to extinguish your fire or not be invited back. I have a removable flue on my oven and extended it with another section so it is now quite high and any smoke is well out of the way. Perhaps you could ask the market organizers to place you in a position where the smoke will not trouble others, the prevailing wind should usually be consistent.
