Okay; the oven is really working well. The trick I use is to re-heat the oven with a roofing torch. A few minutes of re-saturation and the oven is ready to go another round. Tonight we did 64 loaves in 4 bakes and we could of done an extra 5 bakes if necessary. These ovens are real workhorses. My only regret is that did not put a thermo-coupler in; a mistake I will not make when I build the next oven! I am using our shop-vac to clean out the dark corn meal after the first bakes.
