I'm curious as to how you guys reckon they're just cool props or they can make life a lot easier.
Does an expensive pizza peel make a difference or is it just cool looking?
Is the ooni weather resistant in a dry summer is a cover necessary?
Is an IR thermometer really handy or can I just use a cooking thermometer?
Sorry if I seem daft but there is so much info online and you can spend so much money I'm very interested in what you lot think about it.

Fennel sausage is a winner, decent in a risotto/on pasta.

You can make it yourself easily enough. Buy some good pork sausages remove the casing (or buy sausage meat). Grind some fennel seeds then fry/saute with the sausage meat in a pan with some garlic, salt, pepper fresh chilli, little wine maybe. Put to one side and add to various dishes.
Can buy pre made cased sausages, I find making it yourself you can get the perfect fennel flavour.

yep i do as snayer does. fry the dry fennel seeds a bit first before adding a dash of olive oil and sausagemeat + other seasoning

The OG chef Alex Szrok has left and gone to St John. Not really sure what happened with that relationship but the cookhouse turned into more of a restaurant, so you don't get such a volatile menu anymore. I preferred the old cookhouse set-up but still worth going down.

Are these gas powered or electricity or what? Also I’m assuming everyone here recommends them?
