Pizza Oven and BBQ Attachments
You can have your own wood fired pizza oven / bbq & a patio heater by simply adding our optional cooking attachments.
It's easy, to convert your cast iron Aussie Heatwave Chiminea into a wood fired pizza oven or BBQ by simply placing the BBQ & Pizza Oven attachment on top of the chimney. It slots into the top of the chimney & uses the heat from the fire to create wonderful wood fired Pizzas, BBQs, Roasts, Bread and more. Cook anything you would cook on a regular BBQ or in your oven at home but with way better results.
BBQ and Pizza Oven/Roasting Hood Attachment for your Chiminea.
It's guaranteed to taste better and because you're cooking away from the direct flame, just using the heat from the fire the food stays tender and juicy with a wonderful wood fired taste!

Hi Liz, Got the BBQ, Thank you so much!!
The BBQ worked fantastic!! It has been raining here, but we were so excited to try it before the weekend. We cooked some gourmet sausages, and it cooks so quick!!
We started with come Continetial and Mexican Sausages first, then 3 fabalous Pizzas, being a plain with olives, a Mexican, and the last one a my Super Special Mexican!! Food tasted fantastic!
I am using Redgum Firewood, which is not what you prefer, but me being The Wood Bloke and it is what I sell. You are right in saying it is a slow burner as I had to make sure the sizes were smaller than normal, and the wood had to be very, very dry.
Kind Regards, Manny Schembri

Congratulations on such an Awesome Product! I saw you at the Melbourne Garden Show cooking Pizza's and roast lamb and I was so impressed I decided to buy one. I had clay chiminea a few years ago that fell apart and I was really impressed with your new Aussie Cast Iron one. It's way better than the old clay and the BBQ is awesome!

Dear Andrew and staff, My cast iron chiminea was delivered after Xmas, and I'm thoroughly stoked! So far, I've cooked steak twice and roasted a large chicken. Plenty of wood here, so the gas BBQ is now obsolete. After cooking and eating, everyone sits around the fire talking whilst enjoying the spectacle. This is in a sub tropical zone, so we're not doing it to keep warm. You can't do any of this with gas.
Thank you again for a great product delivered promptly. It's something that works as well as the advertising claims. I wish you a prosperous 2009, and may your company's fortunes go against the recessionary trend.
Best regards ................. Hugh Fisher

This has to be one of the best heat and food cooking inventions ever made.
I bought one. Stuck it on the apartment balcony, fired it up, and loved it.
Melbourne's Andrew Fenton imported Chimineas from Mexico and started a good business. But then he thought laterally. If Mexican clay could make a good Chiminea then what if you made one from Aussie cast iron? In one piece? Imagine the heat? Imagine the longevity?
And that's what they did. And now I have bought one of them. They have a twenty year guarantee. For good reason. They are virtually indestructible.
And they€ve improved on the original Mexican version and made the Aussie cast iron one I now have which a has an optional BBQ attachment that sit on top of the chimney and a metal cover if you want to roast a smoked chicken. Which I now often do on Saturday nights. In fact I am roasting a marinated one as I write this.
The Chiminea throws amazing winter heat. And gives you a great smokey charcoal taste for pizzas and steaks and lamb chops -- and roast chickens basted in soy sauce and stock and hoisin and honey.
Burkes's Backyard - Website Link showing Thermal Imaging Camera test results showing Chimineas to be the most effective outdoor heater, both for heat and running costs. This test was independantly conducted on the clay prior to us having the cast iron so you need to keep in mind that the cast iron Aussie Heatwave will produce a lot more radiant heat .

Hi Andrew and Liz
I turned 30 a couple of months ago, and instead of spending a heap of money on a big party, my wife and I decided to purchase one of your Aussie Heatwaves. I thought this would be something that we could use with friends and family, and something that would probably outlast me!
So far I have not been disappointed at all! When the heatwave was delivered, I was busting to fire it up straight away but I had to wait for the weather to dry up, and also someone to help me move it around the backyard! We ended up rolling it on an offroad skateboard as there was no way we were carrying it that far!
We've been using it constantly since getting it in the right spot, and I can tell you that the family loves it. We've cooked sausages, steaks, pizzas, chicken, baked potatoes and bananas with chocolate and they have all been fantastic. We had chicken on it a couple of nights ago, and I was amazed at how the chicken cooked without drying out at all. You have to manage the fire to get the right heat and not frazzle everything, but once you do it's fantastic.
It's just gone spring in Ballarat and we are getting some milder evenings, but even in winter it's enough heat to sit outside on a cold night, and it's a great social event. The kids absolutely love going out to light the chiminea and want to use it nearly every night. I have it sitting outside our back window, and so last Saturday I sat outside with the heatwave fired up, watching the mighty magpies beat Adelaide through the window, it doesn't get any better.
Anyway I'm rambling on a bit, but I wanted to let you know how much we are enjoying the heatwave and if people want a chiminea I'd thoroughly recommend to get this one!

We had to write and tell you how great our Aussie Heatwave is . I've enclosed a photo of it sitting on our decking looking fabulous. We entertain a lot at home and it's been fantastic. My husband's been cooking up a storm on the BBQ and the food cooked on it so tasty.!

Dear Andrew & Liz, Just wanted to write to say how much we are enjoying the Chiminea we purchased from you recently.
We have it pride of place in our garden in Canberra and it's been terrific, perfect for our climate.
We have used it at least once a week and it looks great in our garden - really lovely on those autumn afternoons and evenings. Everyone who visits us loves it - particularly when we cook on it. Pizzas, roasts, seafood and BBQ's, a great way to get out of the kitchen!
Delivery went without a hitch, so thanks so much for organising that for us, excellent service all round.
All the best, Rob McQuade
