Thumbs up Re: Aussie Mobile base oven

G"day all spent sunday putting the ceramic cloth under and around the
flue then covered it with wire mesh.Sorry no photos ran out of batteries,
also put on the first layer of 7to1 vermicrete insulation seems to be ok.

cheers Peter

Wink Aussie Mobile base oven

Hi all added kaowool cloth to dome wraped it in wire lath then added the last laters of vermicrete.Overall thickness came out not bad 6" on top gradually tapering off to about 41/2 to 5 " around the sides.Also made a peel from a old 12" pizza tray just need to make a ash scoop and brush.
cheers Peter,

Default Aussie Mobile base oven

G"day all its been a long day have spent 14hrs curing the oven.
slowly ramped up the temp through the day,only had a small crack appear
around one side of the square front buts looks not to be a problem.
Not one crack in dome yet,We made roast pork, veggies and banana pie with icecream for desert.We all think its the best roast we have had in years.
Cheers Peter

Peter quite an interesting oven, I like the portable aspect. I was camping on the October long weekend at an out of town caravan park, with a group of friends. One bought his home BBQ and cooked a whole range of stuff on it, even stir fry. Then another bought his spit along......as I was watching it all over a few beers they joked at me saying wheres is my brick oven.....now all I need to do is work out how I could build one like yours and tow it along with me.....inspiring
