Cast Iron & The Wood-Fired Oven
Using cast iron in the Yoder Smokers Wood-Fired Oven with Amazing Results
The Yoder Smokers Wood-Fired Oven has quickly become one of our customer’s favorite accessories for the YS480 and YS640, turning out restaurant-quality pizzas in a matter of minutes. It’s proven to be one of the most versatile and inspirational cooking accessories we’ve designed to date. But there’s so much more to it than a perfect wood-fired pizza — it has the ability to cook at lower temperatures for all those recipes that require simmering, braising, roasting, baking, and more, all with impressive browning on the top for the perfect finish. Think blackened chicken, lasagna, cobbler, ziti, mac n’ cheese — the list goes on and on.
Of course, having the right tools is critical to achieving desired results, and the Yoder Smokers Wood-Fired Oven is no exception. Cast iron cookware is ideal for getting these lower heat range recipes to “wow” at the table as it can withstand a broad range of temperatures, absorbing and distributing heat evenly. These attributes of cast iron make it the ideal tool for use in the Yoder Smokers Wood-Fired Oven. Our friends at All Things Barbecue have cooked extensively with the Yoder Smokers Wood-Fired Oven and cast iron.
