The grill and Oven take form

After an amazingly productive day (note the date of my last post) the Quincho Project sees its biggest leap forward yet.  Take a look at the Pizza oven and Grill opening now.

Pizza oven (left) and wood grill opening (right) encased in brick.

The space below the pizza oven is for wood storage.  I should be able to fit a little more than half a cord of split oak in here (which probably won’t last that long).

The space on the right for the wood burning grill will be fire bricked next week.  The entire structure needs to raise up with a chimney about 6 more feet (two feet above the arbor columns per regs).

Some pesky neighbor behind me called the city because of the “dust” generated when they were cutting the blocks, and the city inspector came over and told them to relax.  That part is pretty much over, but there’s one neighbor that doesn’t get a BBQ invite.

Here’s a close up of the Pizza oven opening.  Nice brickwork.  This is a Mugnaini model Picolo 80.  It’s Their smallest oven.  The bigger ones just require too much space (this one is 5 ft deep as it is)

About The Quincho Project

Dedicated to the pursuit of all forms of live fire cooking and the thoughtful prose it evokes. Whether prodding at a dying fire, patiently waiting on a perfect steak or simply contemplating a thin blue curl of smoke - I am truly at peace.
