Wood Burning Pizza Oven and Smoker

EcoQue's Wood Fired Pizza Oven and Smoker design is based on Fontana Forni's dual chamber pizza ovens that are made in Italy. The fire is built in the lower chamber and your food is baked and cooked in the upper chamber. EcoQue adds a second cooking chamber which can be used for smoking and roasting. Unlike domed pizza ovens with an open front, these multi chamber designs have hinged doors which latch shut over each chamber.

EcoQue's firebox has a slide-out wood tray for easy access. The first oven directly above the fire has a window in the door and the oven floor is a rectangular pizza stone. It is meant for high temp cooking of pizzas and meats. The second oven has a solid door and is meant for BBQ smoking and roasting. Both ovens have rails to accommodate a slide out rack that expands capacity, and both may be used for baking, although one should be mindful of smoke in the top oven. All three doors are insulated.

The firebox has three dial out dampers that control air intake by spinning them left or right. An upper damper is located in the chimney.

Like Fontana Forni, the EcoQue ovens sit on top of a matching cart with enclosed storage and wheels in the back. Two pull out handles at the front of the cart help tilt it back onto the wheels for easy movement. Unlike Fontana Forni, EcoQue is made in China and costs considerably less.

It comes with a fitted cover, two roasting pans, a slide out secondary cooking rack, food prep tray and oven thermometer that rests on the pizza stone oven floor. The oven thermometer will likely provide more meaningful info than the two door mounted heat indicators. Do yourself a favor though and get an accurate digital thermometer. Many Pizza Oven aficionados use an infrared gun thermometer to get accurate readings of the oven floor.

3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can't help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.
