Default Re: soggy pizza oven

When I fire the oven, I usually do so for at least 90 minutes and usually 120. I feel like as soon as i move the fire off to the side it begins to lose heat. But the last time I tried it was the time I had alot of trouble because it was so wet inside. So I am going to do it again this week and see what happens. As soon as I do that i will post again. And I will keep good track of how the temp goes as time goes by- even after I stop adding new wood. It should retain enough heat to bake bread at least for a few hours I think ? And I never put the oven door on when doing pizza. Only when baking bread. Thanks again for your advice.

Sounds to me like your oven is still wet. Give it another few fires and I' m sure it will improve. We've had tons of tropical rain and my oven was damp and mouldy on the inside. Did a roast last night that came out beautifully, but I ended up firing the oven all afternoon and the temp dropped off really quickly. It will need a few more fires. Damp wood doesn't help either.
