As winter approaches the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. The temperature is beginning to drop and everyone’s desire for hearty winter stews is on the up.

In this blog, we are going to discuss the top five reasons why an outdoor oven can be enjoyed throughout winter.
First and foremost is the food. Whilst pizza can be enjoyed 365 days of the year, the outdoor oven isn’t just limited to the doughy cheesy goodness.
