Jackie is a compact outdoor kitchen: there are lots of ways to prepare dishes by putting the wood fire to good use. Learn the basics here, but above all, don't let that stop you from becoming a true Jackie master chef. We would be pleased to be invited and taste all the baked delicacies! 🤤
pots and pans
The standard top plate is heated by the fire in the stove. This can be used perfectly as a cooker. Place pan or pot on it, and let the contents simmer.
Rust can be transferred from the Corten steel to the pot or pan. Do not leave it on longer than necessary and clean the underside afterwards.
Griddle or plancha
Barbecuing on charcoal involves a lot of emissions and unhealthy air, mainly inhaled by the chef. Jackie offers an ecological and healthy alternative for this too. The plancha is the Mediterranean counterpart of the BBQ, grilling on a full plate instead of a grid. You can also use a grill plate on the Jackie: for this, you first place the perfo plate, so that your grill plate is heated on the bottom by Jackie's flames.
If you have also bought a pizza oven module, you'll read how to proceed it here.
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.
Baking can start when the pizza oven is about 250-300°C, usually after 30-40 minutes.
Once the tomato sauce is on the dough, that pizza needs to go into the oven as soon as possible, otherwise it will stick to your countertop or your pizza peel. A dough of high hydration sticks more, but will often produce a fluffier crust. Using flower on your countertop and pizza scoop is the message!
You can open and close the oven using the lid. Open the oven with your left hand while using the pizza scoop in your right hand to slide the pizza into the oven.
It's enough to leave the pizza in the oven for 2 to 3 minutes. In the beginning, maybe a little longer. Halfway through, you can check whether the pizza bakes evenly. Turn with the pizza scoop if necessary. Finally, remove the pizza from the oven with the pizza peel, again limiting the time the oven is left open. Next!
