I have the Ooni Pro, and love it


I am going to try my Fyra for a while but if I use it regularly I may upgrade to the pro. Looking at the gas though.

re: Ooni Pizza Oven
I was just about to post this. I'm building an outdoor kitchen soon and had been looking at the Ooni Pro until I saw this.

Like Ooni, Roccbox was rated highly by Kenji, for what it's worth.

Ooni pro works off propane gas, wood, and charcoal. Gozney offers wood and propane with this model, but claims there will be a natural gas/wood option available to ship in July,

NG is better for me, so I signed up for pre-order last week. Just need to decide if I want to wait that long. Kind of a tough call.

re: Ooni Pizza Oven
How do these ovens hold up over time? Will it be useless after a year? Or do they hold up?

re: Ooni Pizza Oven
I replied to this in the other, here is what I said

There are plenty of people who use the Ooni's and Rocboxxes even on a commercial setting. You arent getting a full portable cast oven. but they hold up like a grill would. it just depends on how you store it

That looks like a whole different level from the Ooni and a totally different price range. That's a commitment.

Also, the Ooni pro uses wood like that and its one of the reasons I bought the Fyra. May have been my inexperience. Is that type/size of wood readily available without cutting it yourself?

Not sure about your area, but here in Atl, there are a few companies that provide select kiln dried wood for WF ovens around town. They have an assortment of sizes

re: Ooni Pizza Oven
That's what I was wondering.

Found a couple sources online, for those interested:

https://www.gourmetwood.com/shopgourmet/pizza-split-logs-16-oak/

Webstaurantstore.com

In all likelihood, I'll probably just end up using gas more than wood for pizza. Just don't know how much smoke flavor I'll really get in 60-90 seconds of cooking.

I do see that the Gozney has a port to attach a pellet feeder, though, FYI.

At the 750+ temps, you really dont get any IMO

Agree. Its one of the reasons I tried the Fyra first to see if the smoke flavor makes a difference. I am not tasting it. Leaning towards an upgrade to the Pro so I can use gas.
