Rocket-Fired Griddle Oven

IMG_5052

The new Rocket-Fired Griddle Oven was built during the Natural Building Colloquium at the Black Range Lodge in Kingston, NM. The Griddle Oven was designed by Flemming Abrahamson of Fornyet Energi and built in a workshop led by Flemming and Max Edleson of Firespeaking.

The Griddle Oven features a rocket-style combustion box which offers clean combustion as demonstrated by virtually no visible smoke exiting the chimney. The heat generated travels beneath the griddle top as it also wraps completely around the barrel oven before exiting the chimney. The result is a rocket stove with amazing versatility as it efficiently cooks just about any type of food you can imagine and can also be utilized to heat your home. Pancakes, fajitas, eggs and more can be cooked on the top griddle surface while lasagnas, bread, stews and pies can bake in the barrel oven below.

We were very happy to get hired by our neighbors Hal and Tonia of Big Bear Camp to lead a workshop to build a Barrel Oven. We took the opportunity to make our first glass door for the Barrel Oven Kit and are thrilled by the result. We think it speaks for itself….

In its last year of existence, the oven has already cooked food for a number of monthly neighborhood pizza parties, been part of the October menu for the Epicurean Bears Club, as well as helped prepare the feast for a pre-Thanksgiving get-together. We love seeing the glow of the fire as the food is cooking. Hal and Tonia report that they often just sit with the oven and a cup of tea as it is pre-heating. Stay tuned for a post about the neighborhood kids and their Big Bear Camp Barrel Oven baked gingerbread houses!
