Hey all, I'm looking for some advice on spacing bread dough in a gas abs deck oven

Basically i am wondering how much space is needed between each loaf of bread or baguette for a proper uniform bake in one of these hearth ovens?

Cheers everyone

Peter

Depends on the bread. A loaf and a baguette are two different things. In my 4 ft deck oven we only baked 4 baguettes per deck. But we also baked 4 -5 boules depending on diameter and how we distanced them.  No set rule here.
