What can I cook in my Alfresco?
Wood fired ovens were around well before gas or electricity, so what you can cook in them is really only up to your imagination. Our Alfresco ovens have been designed to be used with and without the door to give maximum heat control. Stewing, roasting, baking, frying, smoking, grilling, pizzas, breads and even deserts.
What is the oven made of?
A common misconception is that a wood fired oven should be made of bricks, however solid brick ovens take many hours to reach cooking temperature making them far less time and fuel efficient. All Alfresco ovens feature a one piece dome made from refractory cement and can be cooked in after just 45 minutes.
Will my oven smoke?
Yes, all ovens smoke but it should only last for the first 5 to 7 minutes after you light it, then as the temperature increases and stabilises the smoke will disappear. Your oven will also smoke if you burn green or wet wood, or if you starve it from oxygen.
Inside or Outside…?
Your Alfresco oven can be installed under the cover of your patio or entertaining area (with a flue up through the roof) or out in your yard or garden area. If exposed directly to Mother nature, you need to do a little more maintenance to keep moisture and the sun at bay. This can be as simple as a coat of sealer once per year when needed.
