Default What Happens When You Close The Door

Let's say you have a small fire going when you're curing (350 degrees). If you close the door to the oven blocking the air. Will the temperature of the oven go up at all? Or will the fire be starved and go out quickly leaving the temp at 350.

Hi Dave,

I have not conducted that experiment, but I would expect the fire to slowly die away from lack of O-2, and the oven to slowly loose heat.

Thumbs up Re: What Happens When You Close The Door

Dave,
depending on how well your door seals, it should starve your fire and cause it to smolder rather than burn. many doors don't have efficient 'seals' and leak considerable air into the dome. This would allow the fire to burn, albeit slowly and produce much more smoke.
This is what you would need to achieve if you were to smoke and cook.
