    (M) I am certainly no "Pro" but I have some images that you could use to help you decide if using what I call "sleeping soldiers" as I consistently have, from the very first course, is a route you'd like to explore.

    (M) Go to: http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/showthread.php?t=294&highlight=marcel

    to see some of those images, or try,

    for a set of 70 images arranged chronologically that follow my oven build.
