  1. With my Uuni 3, what works for me is having the base thin and remembering that less is more for the topping, including the sauce. Then I want the stone as hot as possible before the pizza goes on, then it barely takes any time to cook and just needs rotating 180 degrees half way through the cook.
  2. Are you cooking direct on a chimney starter? I’d never thought of that.

    Good Rice

    @HarryBizzle I quite like brown/whole grain cooked in the Instant Pot.
  4. And I wouldn’t say to use supermarket pizzas. A good one to start with and practice on is just a garlic bread pizza (so you don’t have to worry about launching the ingredients off as you get the pizza onto the stone). Make some dough, add crushed garlic that’s been mixed in with butter.
  5. Honestly, don’t worry about it. Even if you ‘ruin’ it, next time you come to use the oven you’ll want to be flipping the stone over anyway - the heat will clean it.
  6. Mine has always been fine. I do have the + rather than the original though, so its little charging block acts as a Bluetooth repeater to extend its range. You do have to be mindful when wrapping meat etc. to make sure it pokes through, otherwise it’s great.
  7. After getting one in their Black Friday sale, I can very much recommend a Meater+. It’s a completely wireless thermometer that you leave in the meat while it’s cooking, so great in the kitchen oven or kamado, great app too. My Thermapen has barely been used since I got the Meater+.
  8. If I was buying one now, knowing more than I did when I bought mine last year - I’d definitely get a Masterbuilt. They are owned by Kamado Joe, all the accessories fit and most importantly you get an excellent warranty. Sometimes you see them on offer around £700.
  9. How about a kamado? You can smoke, grill and bake in them.
  10. @Popo forgot to mention I have VR already, and it is amazing!
  11. I quite fancy a new racing game now the sale is on. I want something fun and arcadey, not a simulation - more Ridge Racer than Gran Tourismo. I already have MK8 and Hotshot Racing (both of which I love), and Burnout Paradise (the open world and having to memorise streets/routes really spoils it for me). What would you recommend? GRID, Horizon Chase, Need for Speed or something else?
  12. I thought it was excellent for a relatively cheap little thing. Unfortunately after no more than an hour of it’s first use one of the buttons stopped responding so it was sent back. On reading afterwards quality issues aren’t uncommon.
  13. Tried a Patty & Bun kit, which was great. They were doing 20% off with Patty20 too. Not sure if they’re the exact same blend, but the butcher who supplies P&B deliver patties if you’re in that there London: https://www.hgwalter.com/
  14. Get the gas then, it’ll be ideal. As for pizzas, it’s really easy. The only thing to remember is less is more in terms of toppings. You do them thin and traditional Italian and they cook in a couple of minutes.
  15. I bought an Uuni 3 which is fuelled by wooden pellets, and subsequently bought an adaptor so it can run on gas. It’s easy enough to swap between the two. I’d say the wood fire is objectively better; it gets hotter and gives a slight smokey taste. However, on gas it’s much less faff and you’re waiting less time for the oven to get back up to temperature between pizzas. Although I prefer the wood, 99% of the time I leave the gas adapter on - because I’m lazy and it’s just easier! If you’re only cooking for one or two you might be better off with the wood. If I were buying o
