Choosing the right type of oven
I'm interested in building a brick oven for pizza and bread but I have some questions. The first is that I'm not sure about the availability and price of wood where I live (central China). Is it possible to burn coal instead of wood? What about a rocket oven design? Is a rocket oven suitable for pizza?
After heating up a WFO, how do you clean the baking surface of ash before placing dough on it? It seems there will inevitably be some ash getting into the baked product. What about with a rocket oven?
I'm leaning towards a rocket oven because it seems like it will burn cleaner, use less fuel, and have a cleaner cooking surface (less ash). Are there any major drawbacks to the rocket oven design vs. traditional brick oven?
