This is a really great idea!

How hot was your oven? Is the bag safe to use in temperature as high as 520F/270C?

I borrowed this photo from someone's post at another website.  And the recipe is mentioned here, in Portuguese with no indication of temperatures.

Wow, that is something.

Interesting idea. It would certainly help some of us avoid complicated/dangerous steaming apparatuses. I looked on the Reynolds website and their oven bags are not intended for temperatures above 400 degrees Fahrenheit. I wonder if other manufacturers make high-temp tolerant ones.

...sounds to me that the dutch oven would certainly be the way to go.  I'm contemplating either a 5 (5.5qt) or 7 qt DO made of cast iron.

I don't usually bake any free-form loaves. I barely have time to bake enough pan-loaves for our sandwiches. But now, I want to try that just because of how crazy it sounds! Thinking to self: It's been a while since I enjoyed a crusty boule, maybe tonight...
