Re: Three Minute Fire
When your oven is new it is still relatively moist and a bitch to fire. The fire is hard to light, smokey and difficult to build up. The more firings you do the better it works until it is perfectly dry. The same applies after prolonged wet weather and no use.

Hello Doug :)
When the firing is over, do you ever insert the next portion of wood to be sure it is cured for the next firing?

Your nice, big opening makes things a bit easier while cooking, cleaning, etc. :)

Re: Three Minute Fire
I'm not a fan of using newspaper - I use a tiny piece of odour free firelighter (Jiffy brand in Oz) and the fire is roaring in next to no time. I have to place it in the centre from the start or else the flames go up the flue. Wood needs to be super dry for best results. The local gum trees seem to have "highter fuel" by way of gum in the bark which is an accelerant and aids ignition.
