kk

you gotta secure it. just the bounce alone from uneven roads at 60mph is enough to move it around. not to mention the slam on the brakes on the interstate going 75mph cause some idiot cut you off.

The real ugly side of this is if you hit someone. Your going to stop suddenly air bags and seat belts will keep you from going through the windshield...but then you will have the oven being launched at you from behind...or at someone else. Take the safe way on this.

After several conversations with our team and those on the board here, we are going to secure this down. Yesterday we spent most of our time trying to get the last piece (capstone) to fit in the center. After sending the narrow shouldered one into the oven to push from underneath & a few pry bars, we were successful in moving the pieces enough to get the capstone to fall into place.

No major gaps, so we slapped the mortar on. I'm hoping to start the first small fire this Friday before the insulation phase. I'm thinking about using charcoal briquettes as the source. Any thoughts?

I've been using and recommending brickettes for years to dry out ovens. For some reason FB do not recommend its use and you may void your warranty. Check your instructions and if that does not clarify the issue contact them.

Steady on, you might like to give that mortar a bit more than one day to cure before starting fires.

David, you were right about the mortar not being completely dry so we did not try for the first fire this past Friday. These are pictures of our mortar job from last week. We removed our tarp to find that half of the mortar had dried and other parts were still wet looking. We hope to wrap in insulation blanket and mesh soon so we can get this thing into the final stucco & finishing stages.

It helps to attach pictures when you speak about them

Our plan for tie down is to secure eyebolts through the trailer frame and use wire cable & turnbuckles to create our tie down system. We are also going to bolt our stainless chimney down as well. Our model was this build found here:

I prefer chain to wire because there's more adjustment. Also I made mine with a removable flue because there is a lot of pressure against it when driving at speed. I've seen enough mobile ovens with floppy flues to know that this was a good move. It simply slides into a stainless sleeve.

Nice looking oven! Our stack will be removable as well. It has an 8" collar that the flue pushes into and the cap inside of that.
