What can I burn in a wood fired oven?

The best wood to burn in a wood fired oven is a seasoned (dry) hardwood such as oak, maple, or hickory. You should stay away from moldy wood, softwoods with pitch such as pine and hemlock, and especially from pressure treated or painted wood. Any chemicals, molds, or rot in the wood can affect the taste of the food.
