Re: Origo 6000

We have cooked a 12 pound turkey to perfection in ours. Took slightly longer than expected because the oven was very you should have no difficulty with a chicken.

Re: Origo 6000

I hope somebody's still hanging around this topic. I installed an Origo 6000 on the 1926 schooner Lavengro (Historic Schooner Lavengro - Biloxi Schooner Helen) last year and it's been a huge improvement over the diesel stove she had for decades. Unfortunately, I seem to have lost the gimbals. I can still find them online, but I'm kinda wondering if there's much point to gimballing a stove that's mounted fore-and-aft on a heavy wooden boat that never goes "outside," as in beyond Lakes Washington and Union in Seattle, and the Salish Sea from Tacoma to Victoria. You never see rollers in there, and big ship wakes seem to be a thing of the past.

The gimbals don't look as though they would do anything to keep the stove from heeling along with the rest of the boat. We do have guardrails on the burners to keep the pots in place. What's your experience with the gimbals?
