The Hellfire Outdoor Cast Iron Stove / Bbq is a convenient and extremely portable cast iron patio burner which is multi functional and doubles as a barbecue. It is also ideal for camping as the burning is completely contained.
Use it as an outdoor chiminea / log burning patio heater burning logs. At the same time, you can boil a kettle on top or use the provided griddle plate and cook a steak or two ! Being cast iron, it absorbs the heat and stays hot for ages.
Use it with charcoal as a bbq, using the two internal wire racks provided. The racks are surprisingly spacious and you can get loads on them. There is a 3rd height in the inside - so you can purchase an extra rack if required.
We have successfully cooked pizza inside of this unit as shown - by placing a pizza stone (not included) on top of a rack when burning wood. Make sure to give the stone a good amount of time to heat before baking. 7" and 9" Pizza paddles and stones can be found in our ebay shop should you require them.
There is an ash pan drawer at the bottom to facilitate easy cleaning access.
Comes with :
an interchangeable solid top with 2 different size hot plate rings that may be used with a pot or kettle (not included) and a grill / griddle plate* for cooking directly over the flame.
A griddle plate - this can be used either or top of the burner in place of the centre rings (ideal for cooking on when using appliance as a patio heater and burning wood) or inside the appliance on top of a rack when burning charcoals and bbq'ing.
2 x wooden handled wire rack shelves for using inside the appliance for bbq'ing. Option to buy an additional rack (there are 3 shelf heights in the unit)
2 x flue sections. These just slot together over the outlet on the burner.
2 x hanging rails - these bolt on to the side of the unit. Use them to hang your bbq tools or cooking racks perhaps !
1 x hook on wire front guard - helps minimise sparking
This unit requires some minor / simple assembly. You will need to screw on the legs, outlet collar and side rails.
This unit should always be stood on a non combustible base for safety reasons - so be sure to place a slab or similar underneath if using on wooden decking.
** Don't forget that it is the nature of cast iron to rust outdoors if left unprotected. I actually like that - I love the patinsition of cast iron once the surface gets a chance to rust.You can respray or paint if ever needed to give additional protection.
There is no manufactured cover specifically at the moment for this unit, but a standard bin bag fits nicely over the top as shown (bin bag not included).**

Please remember that you need to SEASON cast iron and bake paint on - so start with a few small fires, each time doubling fire size and burn time and then allow to cool before next fire. Three or four curing fires will be fine - but do make sure that the cooking grid is in place during the curing burns. The cooking grid will be a different colour to the rest of the unit as it's coated in a food grade wax that need baked on during curing before you use it to cook food.
