Hey Bruce,

I remember reading this link when you put it up, and was occupied enough with the oven in the back yard, I didn't pay too much attention.

And now with the summer camping season coming, this 'portable' oven you have created caught my attention,,, again.

Are you satisfied with the performance you have from this oven? Would you make any substantial changes if you were to make another one?

How many BTU's does your burner produce? Is it big enough, or to big?

Always need a project, and this one looks like fun!

Thanks,

JED

Code:

Very. It fires in about 20 minutes and can cook up to 8 pizzas before I need to recharge it ( as long as I keep the burner lit). Besides, there is nothing better then to go camping and have home-made pizza the first night out.

Code:
Would you make any substantial changes if you were to make another one?
No, the small adjustments I made within the first week seemed to do the trick. The rest was just learning to use it to produce pizza.


Code:

The burner produces 30,000 BTU's. It is just big enough. I can hit about 775 degrees as long as the outside temperature is above 50 F. You can see an identical one here -- http://cgi.ebay.com/PORTABLE-GAS-PRO...3A1%7C294%3A50
I have been considering going up to a 50K BTU so I can cook during the long NW cool season. But the real answer is to build a real oven and retire this one to camping only. I have almost all the materials and hope to start in April.

I know it would add weight but what about coating lid with 1" of refactory cement or clay mixture? Longer to heat but shorter cooking time possibly...
