PeelsOut™ Wood-fired ovens are
not just for cooking pizzas!
Although our wood-fired ovens are
ideal for reaching the extreme heats necessary to
quickly and properly cook pizzas, our ovens offer so much
more versatility. The versatility comes through our
oven's unique design.
Our ovens are constructed of
authentic high-silica firebrick using a special
high temperature (2,300oF) refractory mortar. Our ovens can be cycled, that is heated and cooled
repeatedly, without cracking or spalling commonly
experienced in cast concrete ovens or ovens using standard brick.
PeelsOut™ ovens are thermally
disconnected from the welded steel frame. This means
the generated heat is absorbed and held by the large
mass (1,600+lbs.) of bricks and refractory mortar. With less
than $10 worth of
quality firewood, our PeelsOut™ oven will reach temperatures
approaching 1000oF. All the
while, the stucco exterior and steel frame remain
cool to the touch.
Ovens Starting at just $8,500!
Our insulation techniques have
their definite benefits. As an example, after an afternoon of cooking pizzas, calzones, flatbreads,
etc., I often let the oven cool for an hour or two
before baking a two or three chickens for the
next day. My thought is, "I've got all this
stored heat, I might as well use it. Right?"
After 90 minutes in the oven, I will
remove the cooked chickens and then set the
door in place for the next morning... Yes,
the next morning! We are not done yet.
As I mentioned, PeelsOut™
ovens have a lot of mass - two to five times as much mass as the
do-it-yourself ovens made of cast concrete. The more mass, the
more heat that is captured and stored for cooking. If the door
has been put in place after cooking the day before,
the oven will still be between 400o to
500oF the next morning. This is perfect
temperatures for baking bread, pies, stews in a
Dutch oven, rib-roasts, etc., or allow it to cool
for a while for slow cooking beef or pork ribs, or
smoking meats using mesquite or hickory chips.
The list of uses is endless. In the
Cooking Styles page, we will detail ways to use your
PeelsOut™ oven for maximum
benefit and enjoyment.
