I'm not sure, but I expect to use some residual heat in several days to do something. I don't have a door yet, so I can't do anything that will take too long. I think maybe a chicken, split down the backbone and flattened, with some fresh herbs and garlic stuffed under the skin. Or I could do it with the beer can stand thingy and a pan- that way I don't run the risk of messing up one of my cast iron pans. I might put some veg. in around the bottom too- I have a lot of fennel right now, and I love it roasted.

While we were gone, a groundhog took advantage of the absence of dogs to eat my parsley, my carrot tops, my fennel tops, my lettuce, and some of my sweet potato vines. He's taken up residence under the deck, you see, and I'm going to let the dogs at him. I HATE groundhogs. Especially when they eat my garden. (anyone notice that they never eat the things you have too much of, like zucchini? why is that?)

I feel your pain. The deer got all the tops of my tomato plants and also ate my hostas....

Apparently Deer do not like Basil - that plant is doing wonderful.

groundhogs don't like basil, sage, or rosemary at my house... and my smallest dog has already scared the living crap out of it! so maybe it will leave.

I have enjoyed watching your build very much. Is it true that garden fed wood fired oven ground hog is tasty?

I dunno. Lola (the little dog) got hold of it twice, but then let it go under the porch again. We haven't seen it since. Either I'll start smelling something vile soon out there, or it's maybe moved. I haven't seen any more damage out in the garden, either.

Since Lola let it go, I doubt it tastes very good. But if it shows its little rodenty face again, we might find out!

The second fire, of newspaper and kindling, is now burning. Most of the smoke goes out through the vent, although some is going out the front. It was a little hard to get it going at first- I think I'll have to check out the fire-building pages!

Congrats

AAAKK!

It's raining on my curing fire! I put one layer of blanket on, and there's tarp on that part, but the entry is too hot to cover up!

Crap. Does the blanket dry out ok if it gets a little wet around the bottom?

And we never have just rain. We have to have wind too.

Wheee, leave the forum for a measly little week or three and you miss half the fun...

Congratulations on your wonderfull oven Elisabeth! It looks really good.

I think you'll be ok with the rain. Ok, mine was made from different materials etc, but I'm sure most ovens get a bit wet at one stage or another. It'll feel good to have it coved up and waetherproofed though, won't it?
