Probably nobody will agree with me on this, but I think cooking with gas outside is a bit of a swizz - you may as well cook inside if you're using gas. Takes all the fun out of BBQing for me.

My son has a pellet Ooni and it makes amazing food, and to us it's no extra effort. Each to their own though, and I'm glad you've got what you were after.

i have a wood fired pizza oven - courtesy of Aldi a few years ago - and it is a massive faff. But i love it. You can also do the most amazing steaks on it. dont let the wood burn down, but burn flavoursome wood and leave an iron skillet on the pizza stone and let that flame go wild. The skillet can get to 400C and then whack the steak on. 60 seconds and turn it over and 60 seconds and take the skillet out. leave to rest on the skillet for maybe 5 minutes and you have the most amazing steak EVER.
as for Irelands propensity for rain - get yourself a bbq area built. I smoked our christmas ham joint on christmas day! (note, picture is not xmas day but a lovely balmy summer whilst smoking some outragrously spicy chicken, but you get my drift)

I have that oven. I find it easy to work. First pizza is always the worst,.most likely because I am not patient and put it in too hot. I like the fact it can good multiple items. I often have spuds, corn on the cob etc in whilst doing pizza
