We stoked the cob oven from 8 to 12:30 and then cooked:

The bread browned quickly, but baked excellently. The ribs cooked well, but we could have left them in for another hours (they were only in the oven for around 2 hours.

The beans and potatos were underdone. The beans didn't cook well because I had added tomato. The potatos did not get hot enough--next time I would put them in at bread temperature. I put the potatos back in the oven overnight. In the morning they were hot to the touch but still not always fully cooked. Potatos need it hot!

I also learned that the potatos need to be removed from the foil immediately after being taken out of the oven. Otherwise they get soggy. I'd like to try cooking them in the oven without foil.


We stoked the cob oven for 3 1/2 hours and then cooked:

Everything cooked excellently. The corn can go in immediately after the fire is removed.
