  • How Your Oven Works

    I have been describing verbally how wood-fired ovens wook to folks for a while, and it always makes sense, so I tried to capture it in a series of graphics.

    Here are three graphics that show reflective heat, natural convection and conduction. The next posting shows two graphics on how coals work in a brick oven, and then a graphic on retained heat.

    They are pretty simple, but does a picture tells a thousand words?

    Click on the next posting to see the graphics for using coals and retained heat.

    Here are the three graphics on using coals and retained heat.

    These are used in the new Wood-Fired Cooking e-Book, to help describe the different ways you can cook with a WFO.

    The previous posting shos graphics for Reflection, Conduction and Convection.

      Just starting to look over the PDF, and the first comment I wrote down to send you then was that I thought these graphics are quite usefu. They give new users, even the experienced the whole idea very quickly and concisely.
