Acoma's cure
Very soon the spiritual process continues with the trial of fires and then the burnt offerings to the gods.....all the best on your journey.... it will soon be good eatings....sooner than you think!


FB is surely the cure for the common oven,
thanks James too.

Re: Acoma's cure
It's Tuesday! How much earlier than normal did you wake up Robert?

Enjoy the next few days, you earned them.

Re: Acoma's cure
Well, you can call me Richard (Robert). I didn't wake up early because I could not sleep. I exhausted myself last night. My camera's batteries went dead and I want a photo opp before the first cure. My wife is taking the oldest girl to school, then picking up batteries. Once the photo is done, the fire begins:)

Re: Acoma's cure
Ohh yaaa!!!!!!! Photos will come but the draw up the flue is excellante! I noticed that at 100 degrees the smoke would come out the arch and flue. As the temp climbed in the low 200's the smoke that does exixt goes up the flue about 90%. I am keeping the oven between 200-285. I figure that if I want to hit 300, it will jump to 325+ quickly. My goal is to maintain that medium throughout the day.

My cord of Almond came this morning and it is sweet! Heavy too! The guys from the yard loved the oven, very impressed, and reiterated to me that any time I want scraps (nice ones too), that I can come by any time. What happiness to that? Almond, walnut, Oak, any of the scraps. I could load up my SUV easy several times over.

I was going to continue with all details about the oven on my oven thread, but thanks to Xabia, it makes sense to document my curing on a curing thread. Thank you Xabia:) I will post the oven without curing on my other thread. My curing photos will go here.

No cracks, no cracks, no cracks, that is what I repeat througout.

Hang in there Richard! ;) Don't forget to tap the heels of your ruby slippers three times as you say that!

Re: Acoma's cure
Very exciting indeed! Still looking for the deal on the wood- glad that worked out for you.

BTW...Where did the "Richard" thing come from? I missed that.
