The Basil has been designed to allow easy cooking and the maximum use of space in the oven. This oven will easily hold a small lamb, pig, goat or a mass of chickens, roasts and all of the accompaniments for a large get together.
The oven consists of a firebox and oven compartment, both of which may be used to cook in. So if you like that smokey flavour in your pizzas or meat then cook in the firebox with the coals, or open the smoke vents in the oven, and for scones or bread or to lessen the smokiness you can use the oven compartment with the smoke vents closed or partially closed.
To create added atmosphere and add warmth in winter you can cook with the firebox door open and sit in front of a beautiful open fire.
