I have a #2 sunny brick in the mould under my sunny, when It dries enough I will bake It for a while, then ship them out to you. Baking brick gives new meaning to cooking with coal . Have a nice easter. Wilson
That brick probably tastes better than what I bake too !
The chicken was baked with the lid on the roasting pan the entire time. I'll ash her how long she baked it for. And, I think she uses chicken stock in the white rice instead of just water ? I'll ask her.
With the stove/nut coal mix, and the water reservoir damper closed, the oven gets hot enough to brown it while covered. Don't forget that one of the hottest surfaces in the oven is the top.
I haven't tried baking with straight stove coal yet, so I don't know how hot the oven will go. Bill, at Once Upon A Time stove shop, told me his Glenwood's oven easily gets up to 600, but I didn't think to ask for more details of what he does to get it that hot. Running on just hard wood maybe ?
Thanks, and a good Easter to you too.
