We fired up the oven today and did the top-down method (although it seemed counter-intuitive to both me and my husband). We put the big logs on bottom, then smaller wood across those, then twigs, dryer lint, and a fire starter.....it lit like a champ and did not need tending for about 20 minutes when we put the big log on top! We did not cook any pizzas today so didn't get the oven up past 500....baked several casseroles. I hope my pictures turn out.
No announcement yet.
I'm a "top down fire" convert!
