Does anyone have any type pizza oven

jdMyersjdMyers Posts: 291
I know this is an egg forum.  But does anyone have a separate wood burning pizza oven oven or experience with one?.  Looking for some basic answers.

If its a countertopl larger model, cN they set directly on granite if they have their own feet and the oven is a couple inches elevated?

Any tios on size or types of wood to use?

Is the metal wood separater metal shield or wood keeper neccessary?

Is the mini anvil the holds wood in the air neccessary?

Any ither tips?

    Is the Pope Catholic??  Does a hobby horse have a hickory d!ck?  Said another way, give the search function here a look as there are many who have stand-alone pizza ovens and are more than willing to offer help and insights.  FWIW-
    Likely better insights than on a pizza oven forum but that is just a guess.  
    Louisville; "indeterminate Jim" here; L&S BGE's, PBC, Lang 36; burnin wood in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer!

    I have a dedicated woodfired oven. Do you have questions about that or about table top models like the Roccbox?

    There are folks here with both kinds of pizza ovens. 
    Coleman, Texas
    Large BGE & Mini Max for the wok. A few old camp Dutch ovens and a wood fired oven. LSG 24” cabinet offset smoker. There are a few paella pans and a Patagonia cross in the barn. 
    "Bourbon slushies. Sure you can cook on the BGE without them, but why would you?"

    Is yours an all brick model or one of the stainless steel type.  Im looking at fuller sized not oonie etc.  I was originally looking at the Portuguese refractory brick 1000 lbs type but being in ohio and the potential for moisture cracks made me hesitate.  The forno bravo or alfa series sized can they set on granite with their included metal feet

    It’s a Forno Bravo Casa 90. It’s refractory cement. I didn’t have the patience (or skill) to make mine from bricks.

    Ive been eyeballing the Fontana line of stainless countertop ovens. 
    These are much larger than the Oonis etc. There’s a member here who has one and raves about it.

    The forno brava lisboa is what i was looking at.  Ohio westher 4 season in same day and uncovered oushed towards a stainless steel one.  I coulndt find answers on how often the chrack filler touch upnwouod be needed and keeping it dried out would be a nitemare.  But man i love  the look of that style.  Looked and the fontana line, cant get it till august.
