Hey everyone,

I'm looking for some plans for a small rocket cob oven. I want to make it on some sort of trailer so it can be moved around, I think I'll be moving in about a year. This really isn't too important though, mostly we want to try it out on a small scale and get a feel for it. We live in a town where its technically illegal to have fires, unless you're cooking on it. It's due to air pollution, so I figured a rocket cob oven would be a good mix. I bake a lot of bread, and want it for bread and pizza... and who knows what else! It'd be nice to have something outside to keep the summer heat down inside. Can't wait to try out making some bricks!
Thanks,
Kevin Bassett

Maybe something like this?

Moving it is going to be a trick if you build it all in one piece.

If you really want it all in one piece, you might look into building it into an IBC pallet frame. They usually have a 275 gallon plastic "bladder" for liquid transport, so can take a lot of weight. It would take a forklift, or maybe a crane to move it, and I would say you are still taking a chance on cracking it.

I would suggest the best strategy to be able to move it is to build it in as many individual pieces as is practical, probably two.

I have seen a youtube video that used a rocket stove and put it under a small cob oven built on a table. Separating the two pieces would give you a MUCH better chance of being able to move it, and if you broke one, it would be easier to rebuild than having to do everything over again.

Here is a two piece stove. I think there is another video or two (likely more) of other two piece stoves.

Really enjoyed these videos. Seems like a great idea, especially if we could pull the rocket stove out and cook on it as well. Thanks a lot!
