It was 46c here today with total fire ban. We have had a bad fire season. I need the ban to lift then I have promised the crew suckling pig. I had that photo of the giant boar because I had my head photo shopped on to the farmer in an invitation for a previous suckling pig event that was called "Pig day out" .We have a big annual outdoor music concert called The Big Day OUT".
I need a metal fabricator to make a pan 40cm x 80cm, oven is 100cm x120 internal but door is 41cm.I get it to running speed in about an hour +20 maybe then push the fire into the back giving me 100cm x100cm to cook on. Its about being able to move the pan around as easy as possible with overhang 80cm+ is a decent pig.
I know some immensely talented metal workers but they are all on the forum & a long way from here.I will start a thread & stop dropping in on this one.I have no metal skills but I do enjoy masonry stuff .The outside brick work is all heritage bricks from the 1800s some of them convict chain gang made they have the indent of a heart,diamond or shamrock in the top. Pre 1850.
Hard to lay for an amateur ,I got better after the first 2000 spread over different projects. I am nowhere near as talented as scarbellys mason or the guy on here that built that brick smoker, Wes something? in PA.Thats just beautiful.
Back on the topic of puravidas thread. I think it has the potential to be a shotgun marriage to the homeliest girl in town if you get the mechanics of the partnership wrong! I cant see how you can go through the dome to a chamber above in masonry.Steel, some of the metal magicians on this site could do that easy but brick arches are going to collapse .
So I figure its build the wood fire oven however suits you then put a smoker box into the chimney,probabley in steel . It could be wider than the chimney sort of a T look,so the centre would get most of the heat & the overhang section each side would be a bit cooler. I think its doable but its not necessarily going to be pretty.Might not meet with every bodies approval.
