Uuni(Ooni) 3 is a wood-fired pizza oven and you are going to use wood pellets to fuel this oven. Although there were some other fuel options like charcoal and wood, Uuni did promise it to be gas fueled.
In this post, we would discuss if getting a gas burner for your Uuni Pizza oven is worth the money or not!
The gas burner just adds another way of fueling the pizza oven and for someone who is not interested in investing in the wood pellets, might find it easier to use the gas burner.
The pizzas in the Uuni cook really fast so it was interesting to see if there was any delay with the gas burner or you could get the same results.
Ooni 3 Wood Pellet Pizza Oven
The Ooni 3 pizza oven was fueled by wood pellets but the team did say that you could expect a gas burner in future that would make the pizza oven gas fueled.
So, now we have the gas burner attachment for the pizza oven and things just got better. With the wood pellets, you had to keep feeding the pizza oven in order to maintain a particular temperature.
However, with Uuni 3 gas burner attachment things get easier. Now, coming to the installing part, having the burner installed is not that easy and you might want to take your own time with removing the pellet burner.
Trust me, this process does take some time and you do need to figure it out before you can go ahead and attach the gas burner then you would realize how amazing it works.
Honestly, once you are done with the installation you would realize there are a lot of things that just get better with this new burner.
A few advantages of the new Uuni 3 Gas Burner…
The one thing that really is impressive about the burner is there is more temperature control as compared to using the wood pellet burner.
You can easily regulate and control teh temperature. If you want to cook your pizza at 650 degrees Fahrenheit then that is just way easier now with the Uuni 3 pizza oven.
All you need to do is take the thermometer and measure the temperature of the pizza stone. Once you are sure about the temperature you can regulate the gas accordingly to maintain the temperature inside the Uuni pizza oven.
You can even increase the temperature higher but that might just burn the pizza so we would suggest that you keep the temperature around 550-650 degree Fahrenheit to get the perfectly cooked pizza that you are looking for.
The taste of the pizza…
Being honest with you, the pizza does come out really well and with the ease of use and taste into consideration, I must say that using the gas burner is impressive.
There is not much of a difference as the pizza is cooked in a pretty similar way. The crust goes slightly charred with the brown dots around it which means that the pizza is done.
The taste was pretty could and one can hardly tell that you did not cook it using the wood pellet burner. There was not much of a difference.
Is the Wood pellet burner better?
There are a few things in which the wood pellet burner can be better than the gas fueled burner and one of the things is getting the temperature of the pizza stone as high as you possibly can.
Yes, you have to keep adding pellets for that to happen but the base comes out better when the fuel of the pizza oven is wood pellets.
The gas Pizza Oven does get the base high but whilst you get that the toppings start to char off a bit so it might feel like the toppings are getting burned.
Now, not everyone has a problem with that but if you are someone who wants their toppings to be cooked perfectly without any charring then you might want to consider this.
Overall, with some time you start understanding the gas burner and the cooking pie gets easier with it. Honestly, it is much more easy to use and you do not need to meddle a lot like you need to do with the palette burner.
Do we recommend?
Definitely, yes! We liked the gas burner and if you own a Uuni 3 oven then this is a really small investment in order to make your cooking experience even better.
There is a lot of experimentation ahead with this burner and once you try it, you would get to know how easy it is to cook some really amazing and delicious pizzas that taste better than the store bought ones.
