Oven Cleaning
I've been reading about cleaning up after the fire has died down and the oven floor has cooled. Why not just use a soft bristle brush and suck out the insinerated residule with a shop vac.

Re: Oven Cleaning
If you only use your oven for pizza, very little ash removal is needed. You just take out a couple of shovels full of ashes when you're ready to build the next fire. If you are baking bread, then you have to shovel out hot coals into a non-combustible can, then brush it out when it's hot. Bakers also swab off the floor with a wet cloth, but I've never done that: I figure that if it's clean enough for pizza, it's clean enough for bread.

How true. After all pizza is the staple food.
