I finally got the opportunity to put some bread in the oven instead of pizza.
First some focaccia.
Then the bread. Unfortunately as I'm still learning to drive the oven my bread over proofed waiting for it to be ready and the temp was probably a bit low when it went in. It was also an interesting experience transferring the loavesa and slashing them by the light of a head lamp! My loading systems and positioning will also get better with practice.
Still haven't built a proper door.
And the finished product.
After the breads we baked a load of 24 muffins and then toasted a couple of trays of museli. 24 hours later the door was still warm to touch, and we're in the middle of winter. It was certainly a learning experience about how long it takes for the heat to work it's way through the mass and more or less equalise. The big learning from the day was to start the fire earlier and burn longer and then allow much longer for the temp to equalise. I thought 6 hours would be enough to get the oven ready, but it wasn't!
I've loaded more photos in my gallery .
