I think the bigger issue for me is no "pops". Softwood throws out sparks, hardwood burns hotter with no explosions.

Yea, but then you miss the fireworks and neat little holes in your shirts and pants, as well as those nice little ankle warming embers that get caught in the fabric at the top of your shoes...

Until now I did have a single pop!
I don't know why but it burns quietly, big an fast!
I throw one log once the fire from the previous is gone, i need to baby sit the fire the whole time, I fill the oven as I fiil it with olive branches with a updoen furing it catches all at once and it creates a huge smoke and I 'm afraid that the fir department will arrived just at the time that my neighbors are getting ready to kill me!

Yes, and also the crunchy charcoal-y bits on your pizza. Nom nom.

Doesn't really matter what you use to get the heat into the mass of your oven it all heat really. I use palm frond cause they are always around and a pest to get rid off. There full of oil catch like a bomb and burn away real quick and leave a lot of ash and don't smell that good. But for all that, there are heat.
Scrape the excess ash out at the end and throw in some good hardwood and you would never know.
Regards dave

Hello, the main problem with quick burning fuel is that you have to stay all the time so you could feed the fire so that the heat is continued all the time.

Life's what you think it is. I get the lawn mown early. So I can have a cold beer, tend the fire and what the flames. Doesn't get any better.
