Default My 42inch oven build in New York

Ok after lurking around the site for over a year, I have finally begun. Last week I laid out the forms, put in a 3 inch gravel base covered with 6mil plastic. Looking at my form it sort of looks like a B2 Stealth Bomber, however it is just my layout for an outdoor kitchen and of course my very own WFO.
As promised, I got up early this father's day and laid out my 6" foundation, not as bad as a I thought but it definately took longer than I anticipated. Well, several hours later and a few downed beers it is done. Got the plastic down and letting the slab cure. I think this is my best father's day gift ever!!!

Cheers,
Joe

Stealth it out with a black/gray slate outer veneer.

It's Looking good. I am glad I am past that part. I went through 38 bags of 80lb concrete and it was not too fun as I remember. Seems like you enjoyed it. Keep up that enthusiasm.

Ultraphage - I was certainly thinking stone veener....maybe I will stealth it out...

flyfisherx - I went through 34 bags of 80lbs mix. I used the new maximizer concrete that yields a full cubic yard of cemet as opposed to regular 80lbs back of high strength saving from mizing and pouring an additonal 25 bags. My pour was just short of a yard and half. As my dad always said better to laugh than cry.....I am really aching to construct the stand next weekend.

Your set-up looks good. I am on L.I. too, but was able to haul premix to my home. Check it out as it will save some labor. (There were a few muscle tweaks lifting the mix into a high form). Most places will provide a range of mixes to match the needed strength.

Don,

Thanks fo the replay. Two factors had me not choice using a premix, one was the accessibilty into my yard), two is that I own my own cement mixer. So for the slab i mixed my own and will do so for the hearth.

I can't help myself, I seem to be collecting tools everytime a start a project, they are like toys for grown ups.

If i could ask, where did you get your supplies from. I have found a building supply yard in glen head that seels firebricks and firestop 50, but don't know where to get the ceremaic blanket and the insulating board to place under the cooking floor.

Thanks in advance.

Joe

I picked up bricks and Heat stop in Glen Cove. I plan to switch to the homebrew mortar recipe as my fireclay stock increases due to cutting.

I found some Northeast sources for blanket and board, but the FB board and blanket prices were better. They arrived fast and shipping was not bad either.

As far as FB Board and Blanket. I searched endlessly and could not find a better price than Forno Bravo with shipping. When I thought I had found a supplier with less material costs, the shipping then put me above Forno Bravo.

I also found Cal Sil suppliers that would only sell me a case. Per board price was fantastic but the case price put me way over the top.

I am in Connecticut and to ship 3 rolls of blanket and 3 boards the total shipping was only $68.00

Good luck in your search.
