Assembl y
(1) Remove the outer packaging taking care not to damage the surface of the Oven with
box cutters or other sharp implements.
Minor scratches can be buffed out of the stainless steel surface with an abrasive brillo
pad or similar, while painted surfaces can be touched up at any time with an Aerosol
touch up spray available from Wildcat.
(2) At this stage you will see a box and other parts inside the oven, leave these for now,
they can be removed easily once the oven is lifted off the pallet.
(3) Remove the pallet screws from the front and back of the oven, (Hex head)
(4) Lift the oven off the pallet (Two people required to lift the oven comfortably) and set
aside.
(5) Prepare the area where the oven is to be placed: If the oven is going to be sitting on
top of a concrete slab on bricks or blocks (see below) then a sheet of insulating
material must be placed under the firebricks and oven first. 25mm thick Super Isol
calcium silicate board is ideal and can be purchased from suppliers such as
www.refractoryandceramic.com.au
(Sitting the oven on top of a concrete on bricks and blocks)
(6) If the Oven is to be fitted onto the optional Wildcat 5000 Series oven stand, then the
stand should be assembled and levelled prior to fitting the oven and bricks because
it will be too heavy to do so later.

Assembl y Fir ebricks
(7) Next, after checking that the oven is level and square, its time to fit the firebricks.
Using the pattern below as a guide, start with the vertical rear bricks which are the
thinner bricks (25mm) working from left to right, stand them up against the rear wall
finishing with the single narrow brick supplied. Do the same down each side of the
oven with the 25mm thick bricks.
Next, following the pattern below, and starting at the rear wall, fit the 50mm thick
bricks to the floor.
You may have to shuffle the bricks around a little to get the flattest possible surface.
Firebricks are fired in a kiln and some variation in size is to be expected.

Fir st Firi ng Instr uctions
To get you started, we would explain the ‘first firing’ so you cure your oven
perfectly. This will cure the paintwork, burn off any oil residue on the metal
and get rid of anywelding contaminants.
ɄStart with a small amount of dry kindling (Pine is fine) and newspaper or firelighters.
DON’T OVER DO IT! We know it’s tempting and you just want to cook now, but
just a small amount will do. When the fire has taken off add a few small pieces of dry
hardwood, like Red gum, no thicker than your wrist. Close the firebox door.
ɄIdeally your temperature will get no hotter than 200C. (Read the temperature gauge
inside the oven) Let this burn for 1 –2 hours.
ɄOnly add more wood when your fire has burnt to coals. Coals enable you to keep a
more even temperature.
ɄCool the oven overnight if possible or for a few hours andnow you’re ready to cook.
Note: Your Wildcat Wood Fired Pizza Oven will only take approximately 1/2 to 1 hour
to reach cooking temperature depending on which model you have.

Smoking Your Food
ɄThe Wildcat oven give you the choice adding smoke to your cooking or cooking without it,
making it a very versatile Appliance. Simply open the adjustable, spring loaded vents on
both side the oven to add smoke.
ɄUse this cooking method for Roasts, Breads, Pizzas, Vegetables or Fish. If you want to add
flavored woodchips/sawdust to your firebox you also add another element to your cooking.
ɄSoak the chips/sawdust and place to the side of the coals for a delicious aroma. Close the
vents for cooking Scones, Buns, Cakes & Desserts. This method ensure the food flavor is
not tainted by the smoke.
ɄIf you want to cook a dessert straight after you have smoked food, close the smoking vents
and open the baffle for a few minutes to clear the smoke smell first.
ɄThe Wildcat oven has an adjustable Baffle plate inside the ceiling of the oven. This allows
for manual temperature & smoke control. The plate easily slide back to open & forward to
close.
ɄIf the temperature in your oven is too high for the food you are cooking simply open the
baffle plate to release some of the hot air. When you have reduced the temperature close the
baffle again.
ɄFitted to the front of the Wildcat oven is an Airwash. This is used to control the amount of
air getting into the firebox. A fire requires air & fuel (wood) to burn. The amount of air
regulates how fast the fire will burn.
ɄThe Airwash when open allows preheated air to enter the firebox via vents attached to a
channel in between the firebox and the front of the oven. This feeds the fire & make it burn
faster. This is good for getting the fire started and when adding more wood to the fire.
ɄClosing the Airwash reduces the amount of available air therefore reducing the speed at
which the fire burns. This is best when your temperature has been reached and you have
good hot coals burning.
