Baking bread in a WFO with a fire still going
I have a Mugnaini WFO and find that after all the heating, when I pull out the coals, mop it down, I can usually only get about 2 bakes in before the temp gets to low (~400 or so).
Of course, I'd like to bake more so I am wondering about baking while there is a fire going on one side of the oven. I did find an interesting post in this forum that talked about putting a large angle iron in the oven as a stop with the fire going on one side of it, and there was a suggestion to prop it up with washers so a draft would go to the bottom of the fire. This all sounds good but I am wondering if anyone has tried baking bread with a fire still going and what I should watch out for.
Any sage advice out there?
