To illustrate, a 12″ oven will need 24 to 25 coals. But if you have a deep oven, it may require more coals. You should use more coals or cold and windy days. If you are buying coal briquettes you should choose the good quality ones which are easy to light up and which will burn up for a very long time.

So then put one of your gloved hand on the oven lid, now with parchment paper instead, and the other gloved hand under the over. Then flip the oven carefully onto the lid. Tap the bottom and sides of the oven lightly to ensure the cake didn’t stick.
