DANGER_DANGER You would definitely be starving it from oxygen until you opened the door and got a first hand back draft experience. DANGER _ DANGER Never put a door on an oven with a fire going on inside! Unless you need to try to smother it and plan on not removing the door for a day or so.
I put my door on for the night after the fire is out and there are some hot coals only. Then I do not open it until the next day for bread baking. Typical temp is 700 F at night and 650 F in the morning. Some of that heat is from the still smoldering coals which still burn ever so slowly during the night leaving almost no ash in the am.
Everyone please be careful
Thanks
John

Hi V-wiz,
I am not implying you personally or others don't know the dangers of back draft, but since many people read these posts from all walks of life. Before this site I never did any masonry work and didn't have a clue how caustic lime can be on the hands and myself and my hands are glad I learned from being taught on this site with warnings and great information.


sorry if I offended anyone.
John
