How do I light Uuni Pro by Ooni using pellets?

First, check that your Uuni Pro by Ooni is ready to be fired up: Open the chimney and ceiling vents and put on the door you want to use. We recommend using the door with thermometer for the best results.


Fill the grate with pellets and insert this in to the burner body. Use a gas blowtorch through the side hole or Ooni Firestarters to light the pellets. 


Once the pellets are lit, gradually add more until you reach almost the top of the hopper. Keep them topped up to this level while your Uuni Pro preheats and throughout your cooking session.
