Weber Pizza oven
« on: April 14, 2013, 05:16:40 AM »
Has anyone any experience of these?? as with all things it comes separate from the grill (driving up cost) I don't have the grill so I'm looking at approx €260 for both and don't have room to build an oven so I'm considering this for the summer

 Or this. Its cheaper but personally I don't think it would be great

That one resembles an LBE, except that it's charcoal powered instead of propane burner powered.  The latter is the norm for an LBE.   

Note that all heated air is directed up through vents at the back of the hinged lid.  The lid is shallow to force the air to pass directly over the pizza.  The air exits a front vent opening.  Very much like an LBE.

I guessed that chapsie but was also wondering if it would be possible to burn wood instead of charcoal too??

Found some pictures. I think this tells what im after, there isnt just enough heat on the top side, still would be nice to see more pictures.

Would it be possible to burn some hardwood and get more heat to the dome ? I cant think why not!

I still dont think that theres enough heat on topside. As you can see from the picture the pie is allmost white...
I would like to see some pies which were made by pro-pizza baker using Weber. Price is almost 200euros, with that money
you can built atleast some kind of working wfo.

I agree, and when I saw it in the shop the "topside" seemed very thin to me so I'd reckon there would be some element of heat loss. For me it's too expensive as an item I might only get to use once a month or less going by the weather we are having now. I will look out for a cheaper idea that might double as a patio heater too and kill two birds with the one stone, something like these maybe

Yeah I've seen that too Morgan but I'm still looking at €190 for the grill first and I need to be sure it's gonna work before spending the dosh or I'll be divorced  ;D what I don't like is there seems to be no mention of achievable temperatures from Weber.

I think that the kettle is a great investment even if you dont use it all the time, it will last long time.
