Chimney? or No-Chimney?

February 22, 2011 - 5:02pm -- dmrobin

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.

Thanks, DMRobin
