Gas assisted oven
Has anyone built into their oven a gas assist to keep the temp without using wood, mainly for bread baking?

If you have what are the pros and cons for doing this?

Re: Gas assisted oven
The big "con" is that gas can accumulate in the dome and create a disaster upon ignition. Professional pizza ovens have serious (and expensive) safety controls. Gas isn't recommended for home brick ovens.

FB recommends strong against using gas in a residential oven. Commercial gas ovens not only have sophisticated controls and shut-offs, they are managed by professional in a professional setting.

Here is short document we have put together.

Thanks for the information, I was wondering, as I also use gas assist for my trailer mounted smoker, I have to keep an eye on it at all times.

I'll work on a wood only oven.
