Chris - I generally plan for multiple use when I fire the oven up but there would be enough coals and heat generally after an hour of firing. I think that part of the joy of using the grill in the oven is the reflected heat as well as the radiant heat from the coals. The higher legs on mine compared to Dave's lets me push it into a significant bank of coals but having the adjustment with the bolts would make it more versatile.

Hey Dave - The Q is a little slower and I think the grill over the coals in the forno keeps a bit more moisture in. Not a lot in it though. I have a small plate that I use in the Q for fish and bacon etc. Being right at the door I cook outside a lot and in summer the house stays cooler as well.
Old gassy doesn't get as much use these days but is good when there is nothing else planned rather than light up the fire breather for little jobs.

I have a Q just out the back door and it gets used a lot for the same reason ... Too hot to cook inside in summer. But it's only small and you'd be working pretty hard to feed a crowd. That's why I'm interested in a Tuscan grill now . I could feed a few and I have to face it with the oven away from the house its main use is the weekend. I'm in a queenslander and to have an oven closer means having a 2 story chimney or have it on a 1st story verandah both of which are not good options .
A Tuscan grill wood give me those bigger BBQ options with the advantage of the smell of wood smoke! I've left Australia doted with wood fire BBqs well 5 anyway.
Question how much of a flash up to get the oven up to coal level and heat level in the dome do you recon?
Regards dave

That would depend entirely on how many you want to feed. Make one and try it out.

The oven is hot enough after 45 min - 1 hour and has enough coals to do the job. Like David says it is about how many hungry mouths you have to feed.

I have myself a cast grill plate ( x BBQ of course) and am about to build myself a Tuscan grill .
First question how high? I plan to make it adjustable but you have to start somewhere.
I'm trying for as low as possible, due to a deep entrance I recon it might make it more usable. But like most things its what you get use to.
Regards dave

I am still using firebrick cuts left over from the build to rest my old grill grate on. They are very adjustable . Try propping it up with bricks for a few cooks. I think that you will discover what heighths suite your needs .

I did the same thing with my oven in CT, unfortunately, I have no more firebrick left. I did find some soapstone drops from when I did my counter-tops though, some I will be using those instead.
