Looking at getting one, as it’s off season hopefully cheaper and maybe one on Black Friday any recommendation want a wood chipping one not a gas one

My old man had one installed last year, can't remember where he got it from, it wasn't cheap though, will find out.

Here's some here.

Your choice of course but is it worth the kerfuffle,I’ve got a pizza stone goes in top of the oven high heat,bosh tasty crispy pizza,you can even make a slab of granite to fit your oven shelf.

In my opinion, you can't beat it.

Great alternative to a BBQ.

They are great for cooking joints of meat.

Mate, get an Ooni. So good. My Dad had a brick one installed in his garden which is great, but requires so much wood its just too expensive to use.

The Ooni burns wood pellets in a tiny hopper and gets up to about 450° in 10 mins. Get an infrared thermometer and a decent dough recipe and you're good to go.

Here's one I made did a while back.

At the Italian family house in Valdena whenever we turn up we are expected to cook roast dinners in the pizza oven in the garden.Once you get used to them ,they're dead easy.
