Where can I find wood for my wood fired oven?
You can find hardwood/firewood for your wood fired oven in India around your local hardware markets and online without much trouble.
Mango tree wood, which is easily available in most parts of India is an ideal choice for wood fired ovens. In the mountains of north India, mango tree wood may be difficult to find. In this case Oak wood is a good choice.
Pine wood should not be used, as it is an oily wood and will impart undesirable flavours to the food and leave deposits. Low density wood is also not ideal, as it takes up more space and takes longer to produce heat.
We recommend using pieces of hardwood approximately 15cm (6") long as shown below.
