Oven problems

August 26, 2010 - 2:18am -- Lloyd28

Hi

I have just made a earth oven following kiko denzer's book but altough I can fire it up successfully

I cant get it to retain the heat for very long.I used earth and vermiculite in the insulation layer but the outside plaster coat

does get quite warm after a half hour fire.

Have i got to put thicker insulation layer? I can cook everything else except bread properly

Any suggestions greatfully received
