To reduce transport volume, your outdoor stove does not come in one piece. Read and watch how to prepare for your first ecological fire with Jackie here. Attention: once installed, the stove is more difficult to move. So choose its final destination right away: outdoors, of course, on a non-combustible or -delicate surface and at a sufficient distance from walls and combustible materials.
Installing the window
The ceramic glass and central tube have been packaged separately since batch #3. Hence this small addition to the assembly instructions. Lower the central tube into the stove as deeply as possible so that it cannot move at the bottom. Fix at the top with supplied bolt.
Put on your work gloves to insert the glass into the stove. Slowly and gently push the glass down into the slot. This will avoid damaging the stove cord.
Installing the chimney
Place the smoke chute on top of the round opening in the stove. Never fire without this chimney, as you will lose the chimney effect, and there will be insufficient air circulation to travel the route through the stove.
Installing wood supply and ash drawer
Hook the wood supply on the 6 points in the right flank of the stove. Check that it can no longer move. Slide the ash tray into the opening in the wood supply. You will notice that this is a bit more difficult after rusting - which is obviously peculiar to the material.
Placing the pizza oven on the stove
To get started, it is important to place the oven module on it before you start firing, not during! First, loosen the top plate of the stove by sliding it towards you. Put the plate aside, or tuck it into the box of the oven.
There is now a large opening at the top of the stove, surrounded by a series of perforations. The metal insert that holds the pizza stone fits right in, with the open side facing you as you stand in front of the stove.
The longer plate at the back of the insert has a folded lip at the bottom. Therefore, move the insert backwards first and then forward again to lower it into place.
Then you can put the entire oven module on top of the stove. The clearance left and right, as well as at the level of the smoke outlet pipe, is minimal, to leave as few gaps open as possible.
TIP: If the oven module does not immediately sink into place, it is sometimes sufficient to briefly move the smoke outlet tube. It should fit exactly into the cut-out of the oven.
Attaching oven handle to lid
Mount the pizza oven handle using the two bolts and nuts enclosed. To do this, open the oven module lid.
You place the washers between the handle and the oven flap. This is to limit heat transfer and thus keep the temperature of the handle low. You place the bolts on the outside of the oven, the nuts on the inside.
Using an Allen key and a spanner, tighten them. You will notice that this is quite laborious: the nuts are in fact lock nuts, which are made so that they will not loosen easily due to vibrations.
