- Even Heating
- Temperatures to 560F
- Ability to maintain a given temperature
- Quick recovery after opening the door
This oven has a 12V light kit, door and stainless steel rail for hanging an oven thermometer. It is also compatible with standard oven probes that go inside the meat or dish being cooked. It is 12″x12″x14″.
Oven Temperature Profile
The chart to the left is starting the Dragon Heater cold. No more fuel was added to the heater once it appeared the temperature had stabilized at around 550-560F. At this point it is losing as much heat out the glass door as new heat is being added.
You can see two dips where the door was opened to see what effect there was on the temperature. As you can see the temperature drops more gradually than it increases. The dip on the way up was a lapse in fuel loading.
Maintaining a Stable Temperature
Next, we wanted to see if a partial loading of the heater would maintain a stable temperature. Once the temperature dropped to around 280F fuel was added. 1/3 to 1/4 of the feed tube was filled and the remainder of the tube was covered to prevent excess air. The results are shown below. As you can see it leveled out pretty nicely.
Like other wood fired ovens it produces an even heat, with heat coming equally from all directions of the oven. There are no hot or cold spots.
Because the heat originates outside the oven it is called a white oven. A black oven is where a fire is lit inside the oven.
