Comstock Castle P031 gas counter top oven?
« on: January 11, 2014, 06:48:17 PM »
Does anyone know if these are any good for NY style? The temp is 650 and 30,000 BTUs. Seems okay, but there is only one burner and three decks. I think. I'm looking for a small oven for a pizza truck if it's possible. Fitting a full size deck oven will be tough. Any suggestions?

Anyone? Would replacing the stones inside with 1/2 steel help. Or should I go in a different direction. Where Scott123? Ha.

Marsal MB (the measuring stick for NY style pizza ovens) = 55 btu per square inch
Comstock P031 = 22 btu per square inch

If you were handy and could block off the upper chamber, insulate it and create a new vent that bypasses it, which, in turn, would make it a single chamber oven, that would give you 44 btu per square inch.  Not ideal, but better than 22.  22 isn't a pizza oven, but, rather a bread oven, or a pizza warming oven.

Right now, if you're willing to pay top dollar ($3K+), there are a couple of NY style viable electric countertops, but, nothing on the gas side in a countertop.

You'd take a hit in quality (and authenticity) with the smaller pizza sizes, but 2 Blackstones might work.

Thanks. I'm not willing to sacrifice. I'll find the space for a full size deck oven. Thanks. They're so heavy! Ha.

Scott, would it be possible to add a couple burners (one at the very top and one below the top stone) so each stone could have top and bottom heat? Kind of like a that 10 stone, but in a pre made oven? Am I just crazy?
