Who says you have to buy expensive hardwood to fire your earth oven. Where wood is scarce in many parts of the world, there are alternative fuels. Right here in Maine (where hardwood is readily available) there's no reason to disregard free alternatives. Whatever you use, however, must be dry, really dry.
The key to using fuel, any fuel wisely, is oven insulation. The more insulation the better. Extra insulation translates to less air pollution and more trees left standing.
