Initial Firing Question
From the WFO board
Posted by Garry
I have completed the dome of my oven, and the concrete cladding. How many small fires should I light to 'condition' the oven before I fire it for cooking. I have not insulated it yet but should do that this week.
Also i will have about 30 firebricks, some bags of Perlite and some powdered clay left over, as well as the dome form work if anyone in Perth is interested.
