      Curious how your progress has gone with research on how best to use your oven? I have found a number of great YouTube videos out there where the focus is food and not the build so much. Very informational. I built an oven 9 years ago am just getting back into a second oven now. I too have a big party coming my way that I need to be ready for in less than a month and I am putting stucco on today to start curing fires. Would love to see some cooking videos people have found inspiring and staples/easy for parties?

      Roasted peppers on toasted bread with goat cheese was always my staple appetizer in the oven. Roasted veggies of any sort, eggplant especially is always great while waiting that final bit while the oven comes up to temp and the people gather in my experience.

        FYI, it is better to cure before stuccoing due to when water sublimates to vapor the volume increases by a factor of 1500 possibly building up pressure under the stucco and cracking it. Karangi Dude has a large thread on cooking in a WFO, at his old place he taught cooking classes. So look at his cooking thread.
