The Woodfired cooker continues this principle and offers a surprising degree of control over it’s functions for a wood burning cooker.
Cooking temperatures can be easily controlled via a sliding mechanism just inside the firebox door. A lever on the side of the flue box operates an oven by pass for the flue gasses, allowing them to go straight up the flue, instead of around the ovens first.
It is used when first lighting the cooker to ensure smoke is immediately drawn up the flue and also to warm the flue so that it begins to draw as quickly as possible.
With the ovens heated to the desired temperature it can also be used to boost the hotplate temperature for flash frying or searing without affecting the ovens. The combination of efficiency and capacity mean that one fuel load can run the cooker for over 12 hours.
