  • Combo Oven/Grill/smoker

    So lets see if I can get this too work. I'm still working on this - need to get the metal done by a welder

    This is a shot of the oven straight on from below.

    The main mass is the grill, and the oven is on the left - you can't see the opening in this pic. The whole thing had to be pretty high to get up to reasonable patio height, since I'm on the side of a hill. In order not to have something that looked like a stone skyscraper by the drive, I broke up the massing into 3 parts left to right, and broke up the height by building a retaining wall, then wood storage, then the functional bit. Poured around 6 yards of concrete in the slabs.

    In 2 of the wood storage bays you can see ash traps, and the cleanouts from them - one for the grill, the other for the oven. Nice thing about the ash cleanouts is that they'll hold around 10 years or more of fires if my experience with my house fireplace works. And they are much neater - you can just dump the ash down without worrying about whether it is hot, or it flying into the air

    Charles,

    Do you catch your peels on the ash drop? It gave me a cool idea about mortising a brick so it would sit flush - maybe on my next build

    If at first you don't succeed... Skydiving isn't for you.

        No, I mortised the brick so it's flush - here's a pic. Floor is firebrick, no joints, laid over a 2" layer of heatstop II insulating cement, which is in turn on a 5" concrete slab.

          hmm, that doesn't expand - let me try with the URL link and see if it will blow up better

          If you click on that, you should be able to zoom in. All the pics are on the photoplog

            Heres a closer view of the cleanout door - it takes up half the wood storage in that bay, but should hold 10 years of ash before I have to clean it if my fireplace is any indication.

            The oven is buried in the mass above the bay, and accessed from the side

              Here's a view showing the oven opening in relation to the rest. I don't have a chimney over the oven - or rather I do, but it's only 2 feet tall, and is flush with the "roof" of the oven. So far not an issue, but I have another 2 foot piece on hand if I need to extend it. The prevailing winds around here are from the SW, which is to say towards the camera, which should help.

                And a straight on view of the opening



                Note - the stonework was all done by local masons - around 2% of the manual labor was me, which was quite enough! I find I'm much happier sitting on the backhoe offering helpful instructions

                  Carles,

                  Looks amazing, I wish I had the space to integrate a smoker.

                    Thanks! We'll see how the smoker works in practice - I ripped off the design from an offset smoker I have, but precisely no engineering went into it...

                        Thank you. I added a chimney to the oven. I also think the top looks a little unfinished, but I'm going to live with it for a while.
