    Beautiful oven Randy........that is a similar design to what I am planning.....I am going to have 6' side counters around a enclosure just like yours. One will house a 4ft Santa Maria grill that I just had fabricated in Central California.

    Here is my first sketch I drew a few years ago. I few things have changed, but the concept remains the same(I am attaching to test and figure out how to attach pics for my build thread next month) LOL

    I did the vast majority of my build in 3 months. And that was working at least 40 hr's a week and having a 1 year old at the time. I figured I had around 300 hours of labor in to the project total. About half of that was the enclosure and stone work.

    Ditto Randy........My wife doesnt have a clue as to the time frame of this build. Not sure if that is a good or bad thing yet I'd like to wrap it up in 3-5 months....but some of the time frames on some of the build threads scare the hell out of me

    I don't think there would be any problem with building more than one corse a day as long as the ring below has pretty much set up. If I do a second oven I think I will shoot for a week long build of the dome. You can do a lot in 12 to 16 hrs a day. I just know I can't drag it on for 3 months again or my wife will kill me.

    I was amazed how fast you built the oven........is there a disadvantage to doing more that one course in a day???

    Welcome back to the forum V-wiz! I'm looking forward to many more of your cooks. I'm still jealous of that massive outdoor intertainment area, along with that beautiful oven, and outdoor kitchen. I'm still light years away from finishing mine.

    These just get better and better thats one nice setup and most from recycled bits (I think the best bits are the old bits) The modern floor tastefully blends in with the old charm. wish I had the room to even try this.
    Thanks for taking you time to post this having read and enjoyed the whole thread today.
    Cheers Myke

    What an awesome setup mate! With an outdoor kitchen like that you would put dust covers on the inside kitchen, or better yet rip it out and put a pool table in instead. Very, VERY, inspirational indeed.

    Complete at last. Built the frame around the grate, rubbed coconut oil all over all raw steel and built a small fire to coat everything in smoke.

    Little update:
    I was finally able to fabricate a stainless steel lid with hinges, ive also purchased a perforated stainless steel grate, i just have to weld a frame around the grate.

    As long as it sticks together it is all good. No better teacher than experience and plenty of things have survived the test of time regardless of the aesthetics of it.

    Your food looks very tasty indeed!
