Turn up The Heat

Here in Arizona we are all to familiar with heat. The summer has rolled in and it seems like there’s almost no escape.

Then there’s those that seek out the heat, building it up all day, never letting it cool off.

At Fire and Brimstone everything is cooked in their Renato wood-fired oven. The heat MUST stay constant all day. Wood is added all through the day, about 100 logs a day. The oven reaches temperatures from 600-800 degrees, creating beautiful crunchy blistered crust.

At night a small fire is pushed to the back, and the door is closed, allowing the oven to keep an even temperature in the middle of the night. The next morning the ashes are shoveled out and a new fire is stoked and built, ready to start it all over again.
