    I don't use baking foil - why do you need it?

    Shiny Side Up
    Wouldn't use it in the ooni. But shiny up in a regular oven

    Shiny Side Down
    In culinary school I had an instructor that insisted dull  side goes out. Based on the fact the shiny side would reflect more infrared heat. So I have been doing it ever since.

    Haven't been to culinary school, but I was going to say the same.  Shiny side in to reflect the heat inside.

    Shiny Side Up
    I'm sure I've read shiny side up. But then again I've not been to culinary school so I'd go with the more educated guys above!

    I’ve never used foil with the Ooni but I do use it when smoking and cooking on my bbq’s, I use Reynolds heavy duty foil and the dull side is the non stick side on that, so when I wrap ribs or anything else it’s wrapped with the shiny side on the exterior.

    It doesn’t matter which side is up or down. The shiny/dull appearance only comes from the way it is rolled in the factory. I know all of that but I will still always doubt myself lol.

    Agree. Makes sense to my unscientific brain

    I love the fact that apparently this is something that needs to be discussed haha
