I just went out to check. It's still warm in there, but not hot. I still have no door and only one layer of blanket on top. I ordered another roll yesterday and it was on the porch today. When I get that on there, I'm sure it will be better.

Dusty,
I've come to the opinion, as others have suggested, that every oven is a bit different. The important thing is to learn how your oven behaves and work within those peramiters.
So far, yours sounds like it performs like mine did shortly after curing. A few more firings and a little more insulation may make a big difference.
George

I've got my hopes up for you Dusy. You can always cook in the rain and eat inside. I'm with you in spirit. If all else fails, beer!

First round looked great...good luck with the second.

Yeah, cooking in the rain is not as much fun but it can be done. I've got a pic doing paella with my Dad in the rain by a lake in Sioux Narrows. Rigged up a plywood cover and sat in lawn chairs by the flames.

Definately need some spirits though It works much better that way.
