Default Re: Offset door???

Thanks for the info Tom...In light of the fact that you do feel it benefits you in cooking, I am seriously considering offsetting the entry a bit, but I think it would look too odd if I went all the way over due to the way I have my stand set up (ash drop and indentation in the front of the stand).

Offsetting it a bit will actually work out well because when I originally laid out the stand I did not allow for suffuicient wall thickness on each side (to use the insulating board, the concrete block, etc.) I didn't want to decrease the oven width to comensate. As a result everything was pushed to the right since there was room in that direction. That left my ash drop about three inches offcenter (too far to left). If I move my oven entry three or four inches left, that will result in the ash drop being back on center with the entry.

I could see where an offset could be designed to allow for a swinging door. I'd be delighted to have a built in door rather than have to remove it and store it.

Just my 2 cents..
