Video - Uuni 3 Demo

Great video. For your first two pizzas I think they came out reasonably decent especially the second one. Can't wait to see your results after you get through the learning curve. 



I used the dough recipe provided in the Uuni manual... it's a simple 60% hydration recipe but it has oil in it.  I need to cut the oil back or leave it out and all will be fine.

Great video. -appreciate seeing a skilled cooker move along the learning cuve with a new product.


I can only think "watch when John 'gets his arm around this'". It will be spot on.


Too many times we see video of cookers that are showing a final cook but not revealing the realities of trial and error.

Can the uni be dialed back to say 550*-600* or is it all or nothing? 


I'm not sure about the Uuni3, but IIRC the Uuni Pro materials said that, with gas at least, you can get controlled, sustained temps from 300F up.

You can't get any kind of seriously controlled temperatures out of any of them.  If you need a fine level of temperature control this is not a good oven choice.

Uuni Pro will has a relatively easy to moderate temperature control with the gas burner.  I believe one of their videos show that as well as he turns the gas down part-way through the cook.


I would think that it would be not be overly difficult to regular the Uuni Pro whole burning charcoal as well by changing the volume of lump added and with the adjustable damper, but probably would take some experimentation. Their video mentions burning charcoal to sustain 300 - 350 C, and then amping it up with wood.


When all said, these are "time" controlled cookers though for sure...particularly using pellets.


Regardless, can't wait...Canadian shipping to start some time late October from the latest update...

I think the Joe makes a much better oven but I really want to play and experiment with the Uuni to see what it can do for me. And it can burn wood which is very attractive to me.

      Hi All,
      Just thought I'd post my first real experiences on the Akorn, and in charcoal cooking in general.

      Saturday night I cooked up a simple pizza, which came out a treat.  I already had a go to dough recipie but decided to go with the sticky on this forum and use a basic 70% hydration dough.  It was a great recipie.
      Next time I might take it out a smidge earlier, the base was very crispy which was good, but it would have perfect if it was just a tiny bit less so.
      Sunday I slow roasted a small brisket for my wife and I. I had a number of issues with temp control and have learnt to pay closer attention.
      The temp got to high and then I ended up killing it accidentally. Re lit the coal and I had to duck out to the shops and the same thing happened.
      Despite 4 major stuff up, it turned out bloody beautiful.  Basically did a dry run and then put it in a covered tray with some beef stock.
      It still pulled pretty easily, and when mixed in the the leftover drippings and stock, was awesome for dinner in a roll with some coleslaw.
      All in all it was a good weekend with a few lessons but still some awesome food.

      These were perfect.  After my first experience last week I had a chance to hone the technique on the Uuni 3 pizza oven tonight and had near perfect results.....

      Well I got a Kamado Joe Classic II for my birthday last month and I've been trying different things and really enjoying this cooker. 
      Last night we tried thin-crust pizza on a pizza stone. 
      I watched all the @John Setzler pizza videos on the Kamado Joe cooking channel and used a very simple crust recipe with King Arthur bread flour. 
      My kids had some friends over after Church so we ended up cooking 8 different pizzas. 
      I think I'm really sold on parchment paper now.  I had never used it before, but there was no sticking and the pizza would slide off the paper/peel onto a waiting serving dish quite easily. 
      Got the Joe up to 500-550 F and it took about 7 minutes per pizza and they all came out great.

      Had the 22 for a couple weeks now, thanks to all the info here, had a big day.   My Son had half the HS football team here so we made pizza.   Followed by a prime rib!  All came out great!!!
