Can't wait to see it cook!

Thanks.. Lots of people roast, cook and grill in a WFO, even whole pigs, so im not worried about it. These oven can get over 900F, any oil or over spills easily will burn off. Having said that you dont want to intentionally spill food and oil all over the place, you should have pans under your food, when grilling, you would either use a cast iron pan or a Tuscan style grill, and have coals under the grill, any spill the heat will just burn it up.
