Using a Charcoal Chimney
Half fill the Ozpig body with your fuel selection ensuring that nothing can fall out when the front door is opened. Fill a charcoal chimney with your selection of charcoal or briquettes. Light these and once they are fully alight and greyed over pour them on top of the fuel in the body. Ensure that nothing can fall out the front door. Following this, place your smoker on top of the Ozpig.
Place firelighters throughout the charcoal or briquettes. Light the firelighters and begin the burn down process. Once the fuel is ashed over you're ready. For this method ensure you use natural firelighters as artificial ones will taint your smoker and this smell and flavour will permeate throughout your cook and is difficult to remove. If using artificial firelighters make sure the smoker is not placed on top of the Ozpig until they have completely burnt off.
Using the vented door on the Ozpig Series 2 or the vent grates on the Big Pig, ensure the vents are wide open for maximum air flow. Ensure that your chimney baffle is fully open and bring the oven smoker up to your desired temperature. If you are struggling to reach the temperatures that you require you can always add wood to bring up the temperature.

What our customers say
Exactly what I was looking for- I was looking for something wood-fired and portable that I could take anywhere to boil water and cook a meal on and that could also be my home BBQ. The Pig is simpler and safer than a camp fire and a great back-up at home if everything goes down. I’ve only done BBQs so far and I’m enjoying the added wood-smoke taste. Looking forward to cooking more sophisticated meals down the track.
Series 2 - a genuine belter!Series 2 - a genuine belter! Loving my series 2! During my "burning in" tests it really does belt out some heat, one of the primary reasons for the purchase. Guaging heat, I've cooked a couple of hamburgers and some stove top coffee all with great success. My only suggestion is when you've finally decided to treat yourself to a piggy, super treat yourself and get as many of the accessories as you want at the same time. You'll want to use em and I guarantee you'll go back and buy them anyway. No sell, thats a fact, so go the full hog! (thats a pun) Great service, fast post and I'm genuinely looking forward to the colder weather kicking in.
Great bit of kitWe have the ozpig series 2 under a patio. Only just bought the house and the pig so we haven't got it in a specific final spot just yet. But having these extra offset and pieces helps keep smell and smoke (not that there is much using nice ironbark) definitely recommend this kit for use under a patio. Plus fast and easy postage made buying them easy as. 5 Stars
Big pig - loving itWe love our big pig . It’s so beautiful to sit around having the large opening and we are loving the smoker having started making beef jerky . We had a baby pig but this one is hands down the best
