Outdoor Ovens for your Garden
Outdoor ovens are the most versatile piece of outdoor cooking equipment on the market. You can cook a whole host of delicious recipes. From the perfect pizza to a succulent joint of meat, your outdoor oven can host most of your favourite meals.
Our garden ovens also have a multi-purpose function. Most people position their ovens on the patio so they can sit back on a warm summers evening and watch their dinner cook right in front of them, but they also use the ovens as a fire pit and heater. Our outdoor ovens come in attractive designs which helps to create a romantic ambience when spending those warm summer evenings in the garden with loved one. The soaring temperatures an outdoor oven also help you to brave the outdoor weather all year round, as they make great patio heaters. Of course, while your garden oven can be used as a heater or fire pit on its own, it is very rarely done so. Most people can’t resist the temptation so be warned once you lit, it’s likely you’ll be cooking up some amazing delights for dinner.
Not only are our outdoor ovens capable of cooking a wide range of delicacies they are also easy to use and build. Our ovens come fully constructed so you won’t have to try and build the structures. You may require several people however to move your new oven into position – whereas some of our brands produce lightweight ovens with wheels to make transporting easier, some of our larger models with stunning brick designs can be quite heavy. You will need assistance when moving these.
Gas Fired Outdoor Ovens
Our outdoor ovens come in one of two fuel types – gas or wood fired. Our gas ovens cook in a similar style to the wood ovens, they create the dreamy taste that can only be achieved from using an outdoor oven, they reach the same high temperatures and can cook a variety of food types. The key difference with gas fired ovens is that they require less fuss. You simply flick the switch and they’re ready to go. You also don’t have to worry about fumes. They are the perfect family friendly outdoor oven.
Gas ovens are relatively new to our collection and to the UK and they are fast becoming a popular choice. Wood fired ovens are the alternative choice and these have an established preference with outdoor cooking enthusiasts.
Wood Burning Outdoor Ovens
Wood fired ovens require more attention when cooking. They require logs or wood chips in order to burn. You will also need to monitor the temperature of this type of oven as it heats. Of course, there are a lot of advantages to wood burning ovens. For the extra effort, you get an incredible smoky taste added to your food, your oven will heat faster and reach higher temperatures, and you will get the cosy, romantic ambience that made people fall in love with outdoor ovens in the first place.
Cooking with Wood Chips
Our outdoor oven range features a wide range of wood burning ovens. Wood burning ovens are the most popular style of outdoor oven because of their unique tastes. Wood fired food adds a unique smoky taste which not only improves blander foods but also enriches the spices of any marinades.
You do have to be careful when selecting wood for your wood burning oven. While the clue is seemingly in the title you, use wood for the fire, it’s actually not that simple. Some laminated woods like plywood or wood that has been varnished or painted may release chemicals into your food when cooking. They can also create a larger amount of smoke and may be harder to control when burning. We recommend you use hardwoods for cooking like oak but you can also use wood chips or wood pellets for cooking. Regardless of your fuel choice, you will still get that amazing distinct taste that only cooking in a wood fired oven is capable of producing. If you do opt for wood chips however you can opt to buy flavoured chips, perhaps apple wood chips, that add an aroma to your food when cooking heightening the smell around your cooking environment but also adjusting the flavours of your food.
