    Hi,

    Am new at this, and would appreciate some help!

    Just set up my wood fired oven and am in the process of firing it up. Have some questions:

    1. Is it just me, or is lighting a fire difficult? For some reason, I can't seem to get my larger wood pieces to burn. Maybe the wood is too hard...? Can I use lighter fluid to help?

    2. After the firing up process when I really start using the oven (I plan on putting up a pizzeria), do I need to keep the fire going overnight as well? Or do I just let the fire die out before I go for the night - just a bit nervous about leaving a fire on in an oven overnight when nobody is there to monitor it.

    3. What's the ideal temperature to maintain for a pizza oven?


    Thx!
Working...
