The famous Gozney Roccbox pizza oven has yet another extension aside from the other burners with the pizza oven. This wood burner is an efficient and effective option.
The heavy yet portable pizza oven from Gozney has been around for years, and people love it. It can maintain the temperature inside and retains heat for long periods when cooking.
This pizza oven is great for cooking multiple pizzas without spending too much money on fuel. It comes with every accessory that you need, including options to switch the type of fuel you use.
You can use wood or gas with the pizza oven. The company has developed a wood burner that perfectly fits the pizza oven for you to cook many wood-fired pizzas in the pizza oven.
The woo burner extension is said to be more efficient and faster than its predecessor. Aside from that, we will look at the other functions and features of the wood burner here.
Key Features Of The Roccbox Wood Burner 2.0
Many things make the Roccbox Wood Burner 2.0 different from the previous extension. It conserves more fuel and cooks faster than ever before.
It is larger, but it does not matter as it does not take extra space compared to the other wood burner extension. So here, we will take a look at the added features of the new one.
Detachable Wood Burner
Suppose you run out of gas fuel or want your pizza to taste better with a more authentic finish. The Wood Burner 2.0 is the answer to that as you can easily switch it for gas fuel.
This is a large or rather a bulky extension, but since it is detachable, you will have no problems carrying it around with the heavy pizza oven. You can easily release and carry it by itself.
The detachable option makes it easier for you to cook pizzas in any style you want. You get to authenticity to the pizza from the smoke and the wood-fired burner in the oven.
With this option, you do not have to worry about gas when fueling the pizza oven. You can easily switch to a wood-fired pizza oven just by installing this wood burner extension.
When you are traveling, you do not have to carry the whole pizza oven and this extension. You can easily remove it and then separately carry it to your car or storage area.
This wood burner has an efficient ventilation system. Not only does it draw air from the doorway, but it also gets some from all sides of the extension for maximum heating.
There are vents around the wood burner which makes it great for reaching high temperatures.
Compared to the previous wood burner extension, it can reach higher temperatures faster.
The placing of the vents is also crucial in creating the right flames for cooking. The ventilation rolls the flames, so they do not necessarily burn the pizza inside the oven.
With this feature, you do not need to place the wood burner somewhere windy to keep the fire going. It collects enough air and has the right exhaust to manage the flames in it.
Another feature that makes the Roccbox wood burner 2.0 different from the other wood burner extension is that it is made with larger doors to load fuel and remove ashes.
There is a large door that spans the entire height of the wood burner. That way, you can access the firebox itself and load more wood if you need to refuel the pizza oven for cooking.
While the large door is very helpful, there have been doubts that it can block the air from entering the firebox when it is closed. That is why the door has two openings for that issue.
The door has two small rectangular openings that keep the firebox ventilated even if the door is closed. This is where the air enters and blows the fire to produce more heat in the pizza oven.
There is also a new hopper tool that allows you to open the door without burning your hands. It is some sort of an extension hand that holds the handles when it gets too hot inside the burner.
The same tool works as a handle for the ashtray. You do not need to wait for the wood burner to completely cool down for cleaning with the help of the handle included.
With the Roccbox Wood Burner 2.0, you will be able to cook more pizzas without needing to refuel. The wood burner is improved in terms of size so it can fit more wood fuel inside it.
There is a 27% increase in volume for the wood burner. You can put more wood inside the burner and cook without frequently opening the firebox to reload the fire with wood.
When cooking pizzas, one of the most important things to remember is to make sure that you do not lose heart. This can be difficult if you constantly need to refuel the firebox or the wood burner.
So with the larger capacity that the Roccbox wood burner 2.0 has, you will not have to open the firebox and reload in the middle of cooking. You can cook continuously with this wood burner.
Choose Your Fuel
Another thing that makes this burner better than the first version is switching to different fuels. It means that you can use more than just wood with this burner.
The Roccbox wood burner 2.0 is compatible with coal, briquettes, and kindling as fuels. So if you run out of wood, you can easily switch to other fuels and continue cooking your pizzas.
Unlike most wood burner attachments on most pizza ovens, you can make more pizzas even if you run out of wood with this one.
Using The Roccbox Wood Burner 2.0
When I first saw this new wood burner, I got overwhelmed with the size and thought to myself that it could not possibly fit into the small Roccbox pizza oven. I was so wrong for that assumption.
The wood burner is perfect for the Roccbox pizza oven, and it helps balance the weight of the heavy ceramics in the pizza oven. It helps keep the pizza oven sturdy and balanced.
The fire that the wood burner produced is pretty impressive. The temperature can get up to the highest one, 932 degrees Fahrenheit, within a shorter preheating time.
Within 15 minutes, the thick walls of the Roccbox pizza oven were able to heat up and retain the temperature. It can help the pizza oven cook pizza in just 90 seconds or even less.
Refueling it was really easy because of the pull-out hopper and ashtray. The ashtray and hopper exist within one structure, so the ashes do not fall on the floor when you remove the hopper.
The Roccbox Wood Burner 2.0 is perfect for your next homemade pizza. You can make authentic Neapolitan pizzas in just 90 seconds with the best crusts and topping finishes.
With the help of other fuel options, you can even experiment which type of pizza fits with the different fuels that the wood burner is compatible with.
I would go with this wood burner, especially if I want to upgrade the original burner with the pizza oven. So I recommend using this one for a faster and more efficient cooking experience.
