When thinking of a backyard, many of us start to think about a barbecue. There’s nothing quite like chunks of delicious food that has been smoothly cooked over hot coals. However, could a backyard also mean pizza? We’re always thinking about pizza baked to perfection over a nice open flame – you know, in the traditional style, but unfortunately, ordering out can get a bit expensive. During the summer months, many of us like to entertain and we really like pizza. While out searching for solutions, we came across outdoor pizza ovens, which unfortunately take a bit of money to install and can take up a lot of room. On the hottest days of summer, the last thing we want to do is be near one of these ovens. Pizza can be tricky to cook outside, and for those of us that don’t have a lot of space, a pizza oven isn’t exactly an option. After doing some shopping, we discovered the perfect combination – a pizza kettle and charcoal grill all in one package.
Today, we are going to review the Landmann Pizza Kettle for you …
The Landmann Pizza Kettle offers a total of 375 square inches of cooking space – with this cooker, you’ll be able to cook some large pizza with all of the right toppings. To make sure you don’t burn your food, there is a temperature gauge located on the lid (it’s pretty large, so you can’t miss it).
There’s also a neat vent on the lid – this helps to prevent fires and maintain the cooking temperature. It comes in sleek black and silver – the frame and handle are made of steel, while the lid and the grates are made of porcelain.
This cooker is fuelled by charcoal, which makes it portable. This way, you can move it around in the yard, or take it along with you to the lake or while tailgating. There is no electricity required, which is a major bonus.
Have you ever tried to grill pizza before? If so, you probably already know how hard it is to keep the heat high enough in order to achieve the intended effect. This cooker has the perfect heat system for cooking pizza. The cooking grate is made of heavy-duty solid stainless steel, and as we said before, the grate is porceiain-coated, which does a good job at maintaining the perfect amount of heat.
This grill can reach a temperature of 700 degrees, so you can rest with the satisfaction of knowing the crust and toppings will be fully cooked when you pull it out. There are different pieces here for cooking different foods, so make sure you pay attention. If you have been cooking burgers and you would like to make some pizza, just lift the lid and add the stainless steel pizza ring and you will be ready to go. It comes with a pizza stone – pizza stones are designed for cooking pizza. The porous nature of the pizza stone will help it absorb moisture, which results in the perfect crust. The stone actually makes it almost impossible to burn the pizza.
If you want to enjoy pizza cooked outside, or during a tailgate party, then the Landmann Pizza Kettle is exactly what you need.
