Yoder Smokers Wood Fired Oven –
Versatile just got a whole new meaning.
If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s that Yoder Smokers, makers of The World’s Most Versatile Pellet Grill, would create an equally impressive Wood Fired Oven. When you think of a wood fired oven, it’s easy to think “pizza oven,” but that would be selling this insert for the YS480 and YS640 pellet grills short. Just like every other Yoder Smokers experience, this oven is capable of so much more. From screaming hot Neapolitan pizza to sautéing and baking, the Yoder Smokers Wood Fired Oven can do it all. The only limit is your creativity. Yoder Smokers took full advantage of the powerful fire of the YS480(S) and YS640(S) pellet grills to create a wood fired oven insert that rivals the best wood fired ovens on the market at any price. Baking, sautéing, and searing are all within easy reach.
A wood-fired oven that rivals the best wood-fired ovens anywhere, and pizza is only the beginning. The patent-pending Yoder Smokers Wood-Fired Oven is designed to cook in your YS640 / YS480, transforming your cooking experience from smoking and grilling into the most capable outdoor oven on the market today. Designed to cook from the bottom up and top down simultaneously, this oven cooks quick and with broiler-like browning. From searing-hot pizza to sautéing and baking, our wood-fired oven can do it all. They have done it all in their test kitchen…blackened chicken, mac & cheese, blueberry cobbler, smash burgers, wings, jalapeno cheese bread…you name it, if it can go in to your kitchen oven it will be better than amazing in the new Yoder Smokers wood-fired oven.
This oven is designed to cook from the bottom up and top down simultaneously for quick cooks and broiler-like browning. They’ve even discovered that, because of the high heat and quality build materials, the top of the oven can be used as a high-powered cooking surface by using cast iron or carbon steel cookware. Thanks to Yoder Smokers’ relentless pursuit of quality, even the American made ¾” thick stone exceeds expectations. This commercial-grade stone is precision engineered with a proprietary blend that is kiln-fired to ensure temperature uniformity, rapid heat transfer, optimal heat retention, and industry-leading recovery time. It can be ready to cook in as little as 30 minutes.
And, because it’s from Yoder, it’s a given that all parts are built to last. So go ahead and throw a weekend pizza party; this oven can handle it. Since the only setup is to light your grill and set your desired temperature, the Yoder Smokers Wood Fired Oven offers freedom from managing a fire which makes it the perfect weeknight tool as well.
If you’re looking for an easy to use and highly capable wood fired oven that will inspire you to reach beyond ordinary meals, Yoder Smokers’ Wood Fired Oven is the perfect match. This oven will change your life – in fact, you may never cook indoors again.
It’s what’s inside that matters and their patent-pending heavy-duty heat distribution plate is at the ground level of our design. Yoder reimagined the way an oven should work and therefore how heat should flow. With precision perforation, the heat distribution plate transfers balanced heat for even cooking from side to side while moving air and flame to the top. The result is 360°F of high heat for broiling and baking cooking temperatures of up to 900°F. And truly amazing food.
The heavy-duty hood design is integral to the flow of heat. The overall shape was engineered to optimize airflow and allow that over-the-top flame for that perfect kiss of heat, creating a broiler-like result from a searing 800° down to a comfortable 350° ideal for baking. For added functionality we designed the hood with a flat top which allows the top of the oven to be used as a high-powered cooking surface by using cast iron or carbon steel cookware. The hood is powder coated with a 1200º powder to provide long-term durability.
An American-made 3/4” cooking stone was also sourced and custom fit into the oven. And this is no ordinary stone. In fact, this commercial-grade stone is precision engineered with a proprietary stone blend, kiln-fired to ensure temperature uniformity, rapid heat transfer, optimal heat retention, and industry-leading recovery time of zero. That means no waiting for the next pizza, entrée or appetizer to go on, and no waiting for your guests, family and friends.
