If you've come back to this page more than once, it's time to Add To Cart. I can't say enough about this oven. But I found I can say too much about this oven. If you casually mention at work you have a pizza oven that can cook 90 pizzas an hour, all kinds of new friends will develop over the next 24 hours. You'll be giving serious consideration to taking down the house number from over the front door (don't do it) and contacting google to delist your address. Family will start to come by again despite the Stanley Cup playoff uproar last June that relocated the built-in kitchen island 11.3 inches to the right. There was a military exercise in town a week ago - I'm fairly certain the three military helicopters that flew overhead in close formation were ogling this thing (that would be the oven).
There's nothing like hauling out the axe, splitting the wood, deftly creating those shavings, and then lighting up that bonfire in a small box to create a smoked masterpiece that has the neighbours hopefully peering through the fenceboards with an empty plate balanced on their fingertips. We put together a table out of scrap wood that we use to let everyone make their own pizzas, then move them (this would be the pizzas) in, then out, in assembly line style next to the oven. There's a 30 foot walk from the pizza oven to the patio deck -- it's not unusual for the guests to come down with their plates rather than wait that long 20 seconds for the food to arrive at the table. Then there are the other recipes that threaten to bring bears out of hibernation, squirrels out of trees, dogs out of therapy (they keep staring at the oven). If you want your kids to put down their phones at the dinner table, buy this pizza oven.
This thing is heavy -- you'll need to pull your spare muscles out of storage to get the kit where you want it and to pull it together, and keep them on while you cook since you're going to be on display for all the neighbours, workmates, and flyovers. My waist is pulled in by 3 inches while cooking as I strike poses with tools. The food is so good the waist will be back out by 4 by nightfall (or dawn if you find you must cook after dark as a crowd mitigation strategy)
OK. I've said too much about this oven.
TLDR: Buy. Assemble. Then Chop. Flame. Prep. Cook. Duck! (helicopters). Eat. Repeat.

If you think this is an entry level unit, go to Costco or a retailer offering that quality level -BIG BRO is 800 + pounds of serious pizza making in an attractive finish. We made 40 pizzas for a backyard function the first time we fired it up and everyone raves about the finished product. More pizza going on tonite….
I am thoroughly enjoying my Big Bro Oven. As an enthusiast of cooking and grilling the unconventional way, this oven has been a great addition to my growing fleet of grills and smokers. The cover is of equal superior quality to the oven and looks great. Best of all, it’s all Canadian built!
The Big Bro was delivered and we were anxious to assemble it but the weather didn’t cooperate.
Finally assembled it, took longer than expected due to our lack of focus.
Finally cooked some pizzas last weekend and they turned out amazing.
Gonna do some wings and pizza this weekend. 👍🏻👍🏻🇨🇦
Friggin love my The Big Bro
