Default Going mobile: My new mobile new pompeii oven build

Here is the Photobucket link to my Mobile Build.
Well Here is the first Post on my Oven. I have been lurking here for months admiring all of the awesome builds within this online community. You guys Rock!!!. I Could have never done this without the Forno Bravo online Community and the FB store.

My Launch Date is November 15th. Going to do Farmers Markets, Festivals and whatever else comes at me. this will be a part time business. My wife and I are Excited about making the best Traditional Neopolitian Pizza that we can. I got Hooked on the Naples style of pizza 12 years ago when I first visited Italy. I knew one day I would figure it out. lol

the trailer was built over the summer. It took me about 3 months. The frame was originally a 22' Vintage Holiday Rambler travel trailer with Factory Shocks and heavy duty axles and 4 wheel electric brakes. I wanted a Tandem axle trailer for possible long Hauls+ 2 axles track down the road straighter than a 1 axle. I put some new Monroe shocks on it. New brakes etc etc. I have a small commercial Sandwinch prep cart that goes up on the front of the trailer landing for toppings and Dough. Purchase a lightly used Electrolux Magic Mill Mixer for now. Probably will need to upgrade later.

Now I am building the oven Finished the Soap Stone Hearth and Landing.
Using the Home Brew Mortar. I like the way the Home Brew has set up so far however I would like to get a bag of Heat Stop 50 to do the Arch just to be safe? ( Just being a little neurotic) Not sure where to get it in Central Florida.

Here is the Photobucket link to my Mobile Build.

Do you have any information to compare how an oven constructed of bricks will handle road stress as compared to a refractory oven like one of the FB kits? I'm curious to know if there is anything on the topic.

And yes, the copper will look terrific as a cladding.

I built my oven using a casting, in one piece, because I was worried about it rattling to bits. I'm sure I've read somewhere here on the forum of just such an occurrence.
I'll be interested to hear how yours goes.

Sparky

No I do not have any research. I know a few guys on here have gone mobile with brick. It makes since that the larger refractory pieces would hold up better to the stresses of the road but honestly I have seen some of those ovens with stress cracks as well. My idea of the copper shell will hopefully allow an easy removal of the protected outer so I can inspect repair etc any cracks that may occur.
I also like the fact that the FB ceramic Board under the hearth has a cushion effect to it. I think this will be helpful as well.

The FB refractory kits are a nice product. I just wanted a true Brick Oven + I personally Love the dome shape and Arch that I have only seen with these Pompeii brick ovens.

The Copper is beautiful! That must have been a pretty penny, I just bought some copper flashing and drip edge that set me back a bit. Pushed me way over budget - although come to think of it I had no budget, just bought things as I got the money for them! lol
Great looking oven, I also love the soapstone and really wished I had done that with mine!
Good Luck and happy Pizza making!
John
