Hi Bob,

Great to see you again. Isn't it fun seeing all the ovens being built? Spring is coming, so we will see you more often.

Easier re-loading. Nice. I will add that to my list of "three" good reasons you should try putting the fire on the side.
James

Default Re: moving and positioning the fire

My two pesetas worth...

I build my fire in the front to start and then move it to the side. I have intentionally moved my fire to the other side when I wanted a hotter hearth. I have pulled my fire out when baking bread (and used the coals to start a bonfire!). I've also moved the coals to the back when baking a lot of stuff and moved those coals in the end to access the hot hearth for calzones that should have gone in earlier.

So, I think fire moving provides you some flexibility in selecting hearth temperatures for your pizzas, breads and related recipes. When baking, you can also move your terracotta pieces around depending on whether you want it a little warmer or cooler.

Hey, I'm still learning....something new every day!
