For one steak I have even just used the coal chimney with a grid, works well.

Nice looking chops.

wood from a wood turner...now that sounds like good wood. My dad does a little wood turning (unfortunately he lives down the south end of me..Vic), he wouldn't turn enough to keep up my demands for wood anyway. I might have to find a place similar, i know they always use good wood and must be dry, they cant turn with green wood.
I'll have to do some investigating around my area for such a supplier.

Thanks Doug, always look forward to reading about whats next on the list

Doug,

Love your grill idea looks great. But it got me to wondering, I have an oven in the house loaded with firebrick. I use it for the loaf or two instead of firing up the WFO. So how many of us have firebricks stuffed in unconventional places?

Faith, would you say baking bread in a kitchen oven on firebrick is better than using a typical pizza stone? I'm looking for a way to do the occasional loaf or two without firing up the WFO, but just using my regular stone (fairly thick but nothing like a brick) disappoints, now that I'm used to the WFO. I'm thinking that firebrick would have a lot more thermal mass and might work better.

That's the idea Karl. I'm adding a bunch more thermal mass. It's not as good as the WFO but it is a big improvement over a single pizza stone. I did not use the full thick bricks but the thinner ones and it works just fine. Be sure to give the oven a long preheat time. Another thing I did, This oven I have dedicated to small bread batches so I also removed the oven vent to increase the moisture levels while baking. I also heat up an old cast iron pan and throw in ice cubes after I load the bread. Makes nice steam. Hope that helps.

Thanks; I'll give it a try. Love the WFO but sometimes I just want to bake a couple of loaves.

I love seeing all these posts from Austrailia. The only thing stopping me from moving to Austrailia is all the teeth that the wildlife has!

You do have some nasty Snakes and Spiders though.
