LOL.

One thing, though. You can't bake a Pillsbury Crescent roll. All the additives in the "dough" will burn, and everyone in the neighborhood will smell it. :-)

"Dough" in parentheses. Now that's funny.

Thought I'd dig up this old thread, because of an interesting observation I made today (well, I think its interesting, anyway...)

After building my second big fire today and letting it burn down somewhat, I closed the oven entry with my super thick wood oven door. An hour later, the entrance hearth was cool to the touch on one side of the door, and still boiling hot on the other.

Now I would have expected the floor bricks outside the door to suck up some of the heat from inside and be warmer... well, maybe they do and then cool down again really fast. I dunno, I just found that unexpected (and pretty cool)...
