We recently tested out a new patio buy that my wife asked for way back in December. I get the feeling I might be using it more than my barbeque this summer, and for those that have a few extra bucks, I think it would make a great addition to any southern Idaho backyard.

My wife has been wanting an outdoor over for quite some time. Santa Clause delivered her one on Christmas morning, and it sat in a very large box for a few months before it was assembled. We recently put the thing together and tested it out on a sunny, spring weekend afternoon.

I was shocked at how inexpensive these things are. I went with a VEVOR Outdoor Pizza Over, which was on sale around the holidays for just $180 (normally $210). It had the best reviews of all the pizza ovens I researched. All you need is some lump charcoal and your favorite scented wood chips and you can heat this baby to 400 degrees in a matter of minutes.

It actually works like a smoker too. You can bake pizza, bread, buffalo wings, and cook other smaller cuts of meat in it. We made focaccia bread one afternoon and it was delicious. We cooked our son his first homemade pepperoni pizza last week also. You just have to prepare some dough and store it in the fridge overnight before you bake it, if pizza or bread is what's on the menu.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
