Pizza Oven Gas Burner Retro-Fit

Hi, I built a Mattone Barille oven last year and really love it. Now am wishing I’d provided for a gas burner. I did not make a hole for a burner, and can’t see how I would now. Does anyone have experience with retrofitting a connection through the side or back and using a surface-mounted burner? Thanks for your input. Don Loeb

Hi Donald!

I don’t know how retro-fitting would work step by step, but I imagine it’s doable.

Adding gas to a BrickWood oven

This is about adding it as part of the construction process, and I’m citing it here in case others are doubtful about the general principle.

Looking for retrofitters, BrickWood community!

I’m thinking about doing the same thing. Seems that I would just drill a hole in the side/back of the oven and connect it to 200,000 BTU burner they sell on Amazon. If I do it, I’ll let you know how it works.

If you do - please take lots of pics and let us know the make / model of the burner kit. THX!!!

I’m curious as well, and looking forward to seeing any photos. Were you thinking of a “banjo burner”? Most of the 200K BTU burners on Amazon are mounted in stands.

Yes exactly, I just ordered it, I’ll let you know how it goes!


Gas in an enclosed space is tricky and dangerous but I am sure it can be done. Looking forward to hearing about the build!
