Ok. I made up my mind and reserved the necessary funds ... but - somewhat luckily - the Pro model (that you have and now I want too) is sold out in Germany ...

 

Dodged the bullet there 🤗

That is too bad. It would have been fun watching duelling newbies.

Hah ... I had no illusions there - delivery time for the other models is around 5 weeks. By that time @Kerry Beal would have aced it ...

Wow ... 6 times would probably be a bit too much hassle for me.

If you don’t you can get the big char marks. It’s six turns in a minute. How much faster can food get?

Propane stopped a couple of times which was a little annoying - going to have to look into that a bit more.

This is just before she reached over to see what she could drag out of my bowl.

are you using a combo of wood and propane ?

 

is the Zuni bird any different in the Ooni

 

vs a conventional oven

 

if you are only using propane ?

The Ooni Pro can use propane, wood, hardwood charcoal or pellets.  But not together - so today I was using propane with the thought that it would make it easier to get a consistent temperature.

 

I can't recall how it turned out in the conventional oven.

Do you have access to piped in gas (natural or propane?) Tanks are so very pernickety.

I guess in the Ooni, you could use propane

 

for heat   ( ease of use )  and add

 

a few hardwood ( fruit wood ) pellets for

 

a bit of smokiness 

 

not such a good idea  inside .

I don't know that I can use natural gas on this one - I do have that piped in.

The propane burner sits right where the wood would be so I think it's one or the other rather than both.

Conversion kits are available for BBQs - try manufacturer - then try BBQ Galore in Burlington - I bought a NGas cooktop that I had to convert to propane, no problem - last resort try a gasfitter.

Not that one - and it very clearly states propane only for the burner on mine.

As it stands, I'm sure that's true, but after converting?

The Kodi have an integrated burner - they only use gas. It looks a little like a BBQ burner. The Pro has something that plugs in the back and looks like a jet engine. Its not convertible.

New toy added to my collection - it's a turning peel. Turns out the fellow who makes all sorts of things with stainless for BBQ's and pizza ovens lives and works about 15 miles from me. So I ran up there when I got a couple of hours free last week and had a look at his various peels. This one was mine the minute I picked it up. Balanced, perfectly finished.

So much easier turning with it -

I'm not particularly a pizza fan, but I think I might have bought that, too!
