Leather and Willow: Perfect F1030CC+ Horse box pizza oven
Leather and Willow and horse box pizza oven
In early 2019 we were approached by Shane Brewer, a young man on a mission to bring authentic wood-fired pizza to the wilds of north Hampshire with his new mobile business, ‘Leather and Willow’.
Why Leather and Willow?
As a regular at his cricket club based on the farm where he is parked up, he thought it would be a good name for a catering business and brought two of his passions together for the first time.
He had bought an old horse box with an existing steel oven that was no longer fit for purpose: small, heavy, cobbled together flue system, poorly insulated and took ages to heat up.( We unfortunately see a lot of these!).
He knew he could find a better oven and having chatted about his project at length, I suggested he went for our Four Grand-Mere F1030CC+ ‘Grand Flamme‘ pizza oven because of its commercial size, lightweight construction and fast heat up time. This oven is also available without its strap system for fixed installations like small restaurants, pub gardens and tap rooms. This oven is very popular with mobile caterers because of its low size to weight ratio.
Fortunately for us, Shane had his horse box pizza oven parked up at a farm near Basingstoke so we enlisted the farmer to bring his tele-handler round to pull the old ridiculously heavy oven out to make way for the new steel table that needed bolting down to the floor.
Once in place, we set about installing the new lightweight oven with its unique strap and tension system that keeps it stable when being towed around bumpy roads and fields.
With its updated new 200mm twin wall flue system and simple cement lime render, the new oven really looks the part and is working hard at the events Shane has booked up. See his website here Facebook page here Instagram here
Shane is one of a growing band of mobile caterers using the 1030CC+ oven and is one of our most popular for all types of mobile catering set ups because of its lightweight construction, fast heat up time and high output. One of the mobile caterers we know is achieving 150 pizzas per hour working flat out and baking 3 or 4 at a time, incredible!
Outgrown your 1030? Upgrade to a 1200L
For those wanting even more space we now offer a larger version of the 1030, the 1200L based on the same construction with all chamotte dome and hearth and brick arch and cill. It really is much bigger inside and will bake up to 6 pizzas at a time so for really busy mobile caterers and even static restaurants its a fantastic addition to our range with its optional steel table for speed of installation.
