Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Spacing and selection of burners for an outdoor range

    We're thinking extending a counter to the left of the pizza oven and have a range at the end of it. I'd particularly like it for having a really powerful heat source outside of the house. I'd like to have at least two big burners for homebrewing, or so I could use a wok at decent temperature. Also, I'd like to have two burners in succession whether horizontal or vertical so I could put down a griddle. I am wondering what are good burners that can be left out in elements, but can also be generally set up DIY. What could I fit in an area a little less than 36x24 inches?

    I was also wondering about fuel. This would probably be propane since the cost to get a natural gas line back there would likely be too much for what it is worth. Is it reasonable to keep the tank under the range or should it be to the side?

    Hi Rocko, I to am thinking alone the same lines as you...
    Have you made any progress on you outdoor range?

    I have looked into single and double cast iron burners and set on a layer of fire bricks.
    I also will extend my natural gas line to do this.
    I would like input from someone who has gone this way, so not to "reinvent the wheel".

    thanks.

      You could make a tandoor oven, that would give you plenty of heat, you could also put a restrictor ring on top for the wok.

        A lot of propane/gas barbecues have side burners.

        A trip to your local dump with a set of tools and you could probably score a couple for free.
