Blackstone’s Ultimate Pizza Oven is propane powered outdoor oven on four heavy casters, (2 locking). The powerful 60,000 BTU gas burner is housed in a dome topped pizza oven with an open front. A round ceramic pizza stone rests above the flame and another ceramic plate is positioned above the cooking surface in the dome to radiate heat back down. The pizza stone/cook surface spins via a removable motor that may be battery operated or connected to AC.
This pizza oven was discontinued for awhile, but Blackstone brought it back bundled with a Pizza Oven Cover, Two 14″ Pizza Trays, Large Pizza Peel and a Blackstone Apron.
Although Blackstone presents the Patio Oven as a versatile BBQ device that cooks a variety of foods, it seems best suited for pizza. Indeed Blackstone claims it can cook a pizza in under 3 minutes. A crumb tray is conveniently located directly beneath the oven. A bottom storage shelf is included as well as two side shelves.
This is a unique offering at a modest price point for those who love pizza and would put a dedicated outdoor pizza oven to good use.
Blackstone Products began with the launch of their 36″ Griddle in 2005. They have expanded to offer a variety of griddles, a charcoal grill and some accessories.

The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.
Built around SnS Grill’s patented Slow ‘N Sear charcoal kettle accessory, this 22-inch kamado is a premium ceramic grill that brings true 2-zone cooking to a kamado.
