Thank you Gav — may I ask with what size of cylinder you use it ? I ask because Flogas advised I would need a 47kg cylinder, which I would never be able to move ...** Phil.
Unfortunately I don't yet have a high-pressure LPG cylinder and regulator from which to run it, and it's rather unimpressive when run from my low-pressure setup, so I have to experience the real pleasures of 40kw Chinese cookery ...** Phil.
So sorry, Gav, I inadvertently modified your post rather than quoting and replying to it. I have tried to put it back as it was, but please correct any errors I have made in so doing.What I intended to add in my reply is (1), yes, that is exactly the sort of thing I had in mind (how much, though ?!), and (2) I don't think I ever saw the mobile pizzeria van man in Horsmonden rotate the pizzas (he definitely used a wood-burning oven) but perhaps I just wasn't paying attention.** Phil.
Not really into DIY pizzas ('though I love those from the mobile pizza vans with integrated wood-burning ovens) but the one thing that strikes me from watching both the video above and those from Gozney is that a fortune awaits the man who successfully integrates a motorised turntable into those things. I know that I have to rotate my kebab seekhs by hand, but then so do the professionals, whilst a professional pizza chef just sticks in the pizza and it cooks evenly whilst the DIY home chef has to keep rotating the d@mned thing by hand ...
Kenzi-Lopez (SeriousEats) compares the two.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDK762aVaMI
According to Gozney, the Roccbox comes in at just under £400, so not entirely out of the question for some of our more affluent members.** Phil.
I have looked around in the online enthusiast groups and see a lot of small pizzas with burnt edges coming from these 12” cooking platter ovens, like the koda and ooni 3. The comparison video which pap posted below shows the larger koda 16, and has more or less sold me on the idea that I “need”(!) that size. I also need to be richer to get into this home pizza oven lark, as each time I see one, my eye is then caught by one that’s a bit better....
So, in the ooni range I see the ooni 3 can be run on gas or pellets, and is the cheapest, so I’m having trouble seeing past this right now. Did I miss something which makes the one Gav mentioned (the koda) a much better idea? Running on pellets doesn’t bother me, as I will be cooking no more than 3 or 4 at a time. Would I be right in supposing that the flavour of a wood cooked pizza is better than one from a gas fired oven?How many cooking sessions might you get from a gas bottle by the way, and is that a lower running cost than pellets?
If I were going to buy a pizza oven again I would definitely go for one of these https://www.pizzapartyshop.com/en/portable-gas-fired-pizza-ovens-ardore-spacesaving/outdoor-gas-pizza-oven-pizza-party-ardore.html
