    "Try putting the next firings wood in the oven when you have finished cooking "

    .. and after the fire is out and the oven has cooled to 400 F or lower.

      Actually a good idea to just reload the oven for the next lighting the day after pizza. Today is Wednesday, I did a roast chicken on Sunday, and it's still hot to the touch inside my oven. The next firing is definitely dried out.

        Someone on a previous thread suggested used and dried teabags with the strings removed, placed in a jar of methylated spirits.
        USA translation: methylated spirits = denatured alcohol.
        I'm wondering where you'd find all those used teabags

          Cedar fence boards from the home improvement store. Cut them into 14-inch lengths and them split them into small kindling-size pieces. Easy to light and generates plenty of heat.

            I'm new to this and still at the curing stage but i have stuck in a door at the very front with a hole at the bottom and i found that it creates a great draft and the fire starts very easily. The auld hairdryer to this hole really gets things going.

              The vented door makes my oven burn like a furnace.
