Video - Uuni 3 Demo

Recommended Posts

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.

 

Thanks.

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.

      hey guys,
       
      Ive had a few pizza sessions on my kj classic 2. Although the last time i warped the steel firebox ring so not sure that should count as successful! I thought it aould be good to ask a kj specific question.  
       
      My set up is deflectors on the grill in top position. Spacers on top of that with pizza stone then on top.
       
      So my question/s is when doing high heat cooks:
      1. How long do u let the kj heat sink for? I have just opened the vents and let it ride. When up to 650/700 put pizzas on.
      2. Where do people set their vents? How open is the bottom and top? As above i nlrmally just open them up and stick the pizza on at above the 650/700 mark.
      3. How long should this sort of temp last or is safe for the kj? If i had a pizza party how long could this keep up for eg.
       
      Any advice or thoughts is welcome?
       
      Cheers
      Nathan

      Best one to date. Pictures of just taken off the grill and then added some arugula and sprinkle of EVOO and pecorino romano.

      Saturday pizza has become a regular thing at our house, per my son’s request. I had a good thing going with the KJ Classic and a 15” stone setup, down to a science. But a few weeks ago decided to change it up and try pizzas on the Akorn Jr, half to use less charcoal on the high temp and half cause I had a steel I’d never used. And half just for the challenge....okay that’s three halves. But I digress....first couple weeks went okay, a little learning curve with the AkJ getting to temp MUCH faster and the possibility of overshooting temp, coupled with the steel getting and retaining heat much easier than the stone. 
       
      Last weekend I burnt the crap out of the bottom of three of four pies (finally got it to cool down a bit by the last one...should have given more time after I charred the first). Having to wait a week for redemption is killing me, but I ordered the canning rack I’ve seen many use on here for the Junior setup, so fingers crossed tonight goes better. And I’ll definitely be watching my temps and shooting the steel with an IR thermometer. I’m hoping more separation of the steel and deflector in addition to getting the stew up higher in the dome makes the difference.

      I have an Akorn. I cook pizza like other people. Place deflector on the grill grate, put stone on top of it and make sure there is around 1-2 cm gap between them. I am still new in cooking pizza. After 6 times tries, I want to share some idea.
       
      1. The temp is between 300-350°C is all right. When someone say, the best temp is 300, whereas the other says 350. They may not consider the stone temp. See below.
       
      2. If you just cook one pizza, that's fine. Tonight I cook 4 pizzas for my family. I see a problem, when I cook the first pizza, the kamado reaches 300°C, in theory, it is a good temp to cook, but the base is white, the second is perfect, the base is lightly smoke, the third one is terrible, the base is burned. The fourth one I close both vents, it still in between 300-350. the base still burns, but not as heavier as the third one. Because the stone's temp doesn't climb as fast as kamado's temp, the base cooking is faster than the topping cooking, that's why the first base is undercook and the last 2 are overcook.
       
      I make a dough with 500 grams flour and split into 4 pizzas. I cook them one by one. To next time when kamado reaches 300°C I will wait a couple of minutes until the stone temp goes up. For the rest of the pizza, I may check the base during the cooking, once the base looks perfect but the top doesn't, I will place something flat like cast iron crepe pan in between stone and pizza until the pizza fully cooked.
       
      Does anyone cook more than 1 pizza and have the same problem? What's your solution?

      Have been busy with my other toy projects so the pellet Akorn has been cold for a while. Today kids want to eat pizza so I fired up the pellets akorn. It heats up to 500+ degrees in less than 10 min and the pizza was perfect. I fitted a WiFi PID controller and was going to tweak the algorithm but...too many projects! 
      Right now the temperature overshoots 50-80 degrees if set below 300 degrees, but gets better as it goes higher. 
      Anyway here is the pizza and the good looking grill haha.
