Problem addressed
Traditional wood fired brick mud cob or other domed ovens can produce high quality bread, pizza and baked goods, but they have a long fire-up time and generally use a large quantity of wood. They can also be challenging to regulate heat and moisture after the initial firing. Some designs enable continuous backing but many require removal of coals before baking. This design addresses many of these issues, and is based on open source design principles.
