Hi Tim,

When you say "ceramic", you are speaking of a kiln and not an oven in which ceramic is a reference to fiber boards and blanket insulation. I have no knowledge of kiln building or firing. I do know that last week we had a sub zero snow blizzard and that my oven hadn't been fired up in ove 10 days and it was about 12 degrees.

I generally start the fire slow especially on a cold winter day. No rush, let it warm the oven a bit and take the frost out first.

I've cooked in temps as low as -27, maybe a bit cooler. I tend to start the fire slow then build it pretty hot. Usually burn a combination of pine, fir, and poplar. Lots of radiant heat comes out the door which is nice when you are working near the front of the oven.
