    Uuni Pro first Pizzas

    After cooking many pizzas in my home oven, thinking they could be better if I had a higher heat, I found a Uuni Pro on clearance at a Williams and Sonoma Outlet for $250. Seemed like a no brainer. Made my first pizzas in it last night using The Pizza Bible's recipe for Neapolitan crust and lumpwood charcoal with apple wood as the fuel.

    Had some friends over and cooked six 12" pizzas on the Uuni Pro. All pizzas used some parts of pepperoni, sausage, prosciutto, 4 cheeses (mozz, gorgonzola, parm, and ricotta), arugula, basil, and cherry tomatoes.

    Kept temperature between 800-950° and turned the pizzas a quarter turn every ~20 seconds.

    Since I use a pellet grill for my cooking and a gasser for searing, I do not get to experience the joy of seeing the wood fired flames. There is something very primitive and satisfying of seeing your food cooked with flames from wood...

    Looks great. At that price I would have bought it too. Just too scared of what my wife would spend in that store to go looking...

      I'm with you, What's ironic is that my wife and I were talking about this oven earlier that day and she was not on board with me spending $600 on a pizza oven. Then she's the one who dragged me into the WaS outlet and the Uuni is all we bought!

        Great deal on the oven. And those look amazing. I would have to prove that I can make some killer pizza at home before my wife would allow the purchase even at that price lol. Guess I need to start practicing.

          I have been doing home oven pizzas for ~18 months before I took the plunge. Can't speak highly enough about Tony Gemignani's The Pizza Bible ($4.99 on Amazon right now for the Kindle version- which has been updated and has links to products he recommends). Fantastic book; changed the way I view and make pizza.

      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

      the good one grill

      The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

      Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!
