Big news folks, our oven is almost a reality! Bob and Briana took a trip in a really big truck to Colorado just before Christmas to pick up the kit. For some reason or another, it saved us over a $1000 to go to Fort Collins to pick it up rather than ship it all the way to Gillette. So finally at long last, we have it! We unpacked it, and marveled at how incredible heavy this oven is going to be. My back hurts just thinking about it! It's a good thing I'm about to be a full time pizza slave, because moving around really heavy stuff is highly over-rated.
We also got the axles, wheels and tires! Today we had to FLIP the trailer over and got it ready to mount the axles, we lined them up, found the balance point of the trailer, welded on all of the conduit for the wiring and got everything ready for tomorrow when we will hopefully be ready to paint the frame and the panels.
Pizza Carrello is building a trailer on which to build a wood-fired pizza oven. This blog documents the progress, struggles and successes of the construction project.
