Questions related to outdoor ovens
In order to pass camping regulations, we had to put a manual thermostat in. It will not automatically shut off when it reaches a certain temperature. You must manually watch it. One cooking suggestion we have would be to not wait for the oven to heat to your desired temperature before baking. For example, if you are baking cookies at 350 degrees—do not wait until it reaches 350 degrees to put the cookies in. Instead, put the cookies in at 15—175 degrees, the oven temperature will not climb as fast with food in it.

Questions about WIFI controller
We often see update failures due to a weak signal at the grill. Try these two tips:
- Once update starts, if it hangs after 2 minutes, turn the grill off ,and then back on. Let sit, update will try again within 5 minutes.
- If update fails again, move grill closer to WIFI temporarily.

Questions about pizza ovens
-Internal air temperature – you can read the internal air temperature by looking at the built-in temperature gauge on the top of the pizza oven. Internal air heat will help cook your crust, cheese, and toppings. The internal air temperature will react quickly when you change the amount of heat produced by your unit.
-Pizza stone temperature – the pizza stone temperature will rise slower than the internal air temperature at first. Gradually and eventually it will become hotter than the air temperature. The pizza stone does the majority of the cooking.
