Starting wood burning oven in cold and wet weather

Yes, season is over, but when there is no rain over week end , public
demand pizza.

To start the fire more efforts is needed: use driest wood you got to
start and split it thin. I even use light fluid when wood is realy wet.

To keep fire, paradoxsicaly you need to open more than in warm
weather: even so heat will escape, but wet wood needs more air to
realease smoke. If you close the door even half way , oven may chock.

Take more time and work hard: it is still posiable !

I did it last week end: next post will show some pizza and smoked fish
I made!
