I'm in the process of planning to build an earth oven using Kiko Denzer's book. The topic of chimney's isn't addressed in the book, (at least I haven't found it).
Some ovens have them and some don't. Some are in the front and some are in the back. When baking bread wouldn't heat escape rapidly with a chimney. Can someone out there provide some guidance for me in my planning stage?
You should also know that I plan on using it for bread, pizza, and other types of general baking.
