There is no better platform than Amazon to read reviews on products. We thought some of you may want to see how we have stacked up lately!
Was awesome for a back yard pizza party. I made roughly 7kg of dough following the recipe from the book, Flour, Water, Salt, Yeast by Ken Forkish- excellent book if you are into bread and pizza making. Also followed his recipe for San Marzano red sauce (get the certified tomatoes people, its worth it!). All the guest brought toppings and we got to work. In total we cooked up over 30 pizza’s – all with fun and creative topping choices from the guests. Big Hit!
Highly recommend getting the baking steal- it helped cook the tops of the pizza. Also get a high temp stone, preferred pizza pans and some pizza spinners. Let the stone get nice and hot.
I ended up using a lot more wood then I thought I would need to keep the temp well over 500 degrees. I started with roughly 5 lbs of seasoned oak, bucked up into small chunks, but ended up needed almost 3x that amount for 2 hours of grilling.

Extremely pricey for what it is. But would I recommend buying it? The answer is “Yes!!” (withe 3 exclamation marks). The Kettle Gas Pro Pizza Oven Kit is a game changer. It turned my Weber E330 into a great pizza oven. Pie came out awesome, took a couple of practices in rotating to get it down right. Initial bake time is 2 minutes, then every minute, I rotated 90 degrees, for a total of 3 rotations before I pulled it out, For the pizza dough, I used 2 cups of 00 flour mixed with 2 cups of King Arthurs organic bread flour. Crust came out crunchy, not chewy.
In addition to pizza, I used it make vegetable kabobs. I set all the burners on 50%, and discovered that I did not have to rotate my vegetables. With the pizza kettle, it grilled the bottom and broil the top and it came out nicely done.
But the ultimate game changer was when I sous vide my steak and then grilled it unde the pizza kettle. I dare say I find my steaks to match the high end steak eateries. I cannot believe the versatility of this product. But like I said, it is expensive. But I would purchase this in a heart beat.
My next food research is to incorporate wood chips and see how my pizza and steaks turn out. In meantime, Happy Eats!!

It took a while, but we finally got to use it, but that’s what you get when you buy it in the middle of the winter. There is a bit of a learning curve for making you pizza on the grill; it takes some technique and you might burn your first crust as you figure out how to grill your pizza, but once you figure it out, it is a wonderful way to make pizza.
It does it’s job perfectly and I highly recommend one.
Make sure you have lots of charcoal! We are going to get an extra Peel & rotate the two of them. This made for a fun & delicious evening!
