Ooni pizza ovens may well be great, but given the obvious markup on the following, I would hazard a guess that the whole range might be seriously over-priced:

You could say that about most companies branded drinking vessels. The ovens are good value though imo.

I think you need an expensive accessory to run the ooni oven on gas?

Talking of expense, do you have to buy the hardwood pellets they recommend, or is chopping firewood into small chunks an option?

Ooni sell a few different ovens that run on different fuels. 

If its one to run on pellets then you use pellets. Lots of people say to use the hardwood pellets which are quite expensive but many including myself have run them on the Balcas ones from the plumb centre and I can't determine a difference from the expensive ones.

If you like pizzas and want to cook them regularly, I'd go for the Koda. The pellets are fun but need constant attention where as the gas, you just switch it on and leave it. (obviously)

No, I have a propane-powered Tepro grill, and I have to say it is excellent for chicken tikka, etc.  This week I hope to try it for seekh kebabs for the first time.  Supposed to be "outdoor use only" but I use it in the kitchen !

The ooni is much more versatile than one of those Salamander type grills imo.

I've had an older ooni for a few years now which was pellets but now I run on gas for ease. Great bit of kit and the newer versions are even better. I've also done a pizza pop up using a roccbox (on gas) and I loved that. Plenty Facebook pages for all of them. You can knock out decent pizza in less than 90 secs once they have enough heat in them.

I’m a fan of chorizo, it goes into my home made burgers.

I'm missing my Friday burger due to this 'lockdown' mularky. Missus not a burger fan so they're of the menu for now.

I've cooked paella a few times on different bbq's and don't find its a problem with the heat. I just don't load the charcoal as as much. Personally I prefer to cook outdoors. The weber pans are massive. I have the GBS wok and its a fair old size. I've to try my paella pan over charcoal but I've just found it in the back of the cupboard so will try it this week or next. The 'lockdowns' great for trying stuff.

What paella book did you get?

Cheers Livo, was watching it yesterday. I'll have to make some butter milk as were trying to limit shopping at the minute.  :confusing2: :confusing2:

I also highly rate the School of Artisan Food naan.  It is different to the UK deluxe naan but just as good in my opinion.

Thanks Livo,

You've given me a fine project while in what is effectively lockdown...

Thats the second recommendation this week for that. I'll have to have a look. Hopefully naans on the go this week

First attempt at pizza this year. I was a little timid so overtopped but still tasty

Still looks good Romain.  Pizzas on my 'lockdown' list as I've not really cooked any at home for a couple of years. Simples my favourite, sauce, cheese, fresh basil.

I really want to do some Lahmacun (turkish Pizza) as well as its really nice. I used lime juice and coriander on mine the last time and it was lovely. Rick Stein has a video on them although theres plenty recipes on the internet.
