    Default Metal Oven - Pizza & other food contraption

    This is a thread on the above mentioned headline regarding a metal oven for pizzas and whatever food one can cook in this type of contraption.

    The motivation came from this 4x4 community forum along with the many talented members that contribute via pictures or advice.
    (Dating back some years to present day 2019)

    Firstly to thank Dirk for facilitating the platform to do this.

    Secondly to thank the various members with their versions of ovens and cooking devices they have created along with the advice which I have learnt about along the way, mostly from "it are time".

    (We have...Estee, Riaan VW, Dudley, Kobus dj, Uys and all the other members I cannot think of from the top of my head however thank you)(You know who you are)

    https://extremehowto.com/a-great-sum...lding-project/

    Thirdly the above link who made the original contraption, whose pictures I have used to duplicate "min of meer"

    Any credit should be for the above mentioned people, I am merely duplicating what has already been done.

    A few photos to follow.

    My compressor wouldn't start compressing air anymore thus I decided to recycle it into something more useful.

    The door in the bottom of the receiver cut out to accommodate flammable goods such as wood or charcoal.

    Along with the door in the top of the receiver cut out which will accommodate any food to be cooked.

    The top side cut out to accept a +- 6 " pipe for the chimney.

    The bottom side cut out for ash cleaning, oxygen etc...

    The chimney half welded, where it shall live for the remainder of its time.

    Due to an unexpected diesel leak on my vehicle today...the oven will have to wait for further progress until a suitable time presents itself....

    Thanks Riaan,

    I think next year it will get a fire cranked up inside, maybe a full day of work left just need to see what material I can scrounge from my box of tricks that I hoard.

    Toxxyc, if you check the link in the first post the chap who is from the US of A, he says it can be used as a smoker.

    I dont have any experience with smoking stuff...
    However I might cut a small door in the chimney to facilitate the smoking process as I understand it.

    How do you retain the heat in this thing. Looks like you have a well equipped workshop. What make is your lathe.

    Hi Henk, It must be the workshop fashion these days...

    The rest of the landy is stripped down, the plan is to restore it to its former glory days.
