I'm so happy to be done with the masonry mess and on to the cooking mess! I'm thinking I'll start with my first fire tomorrow and see what happens. I used an air-setting mortar (Sairset) vs. cement-based, and I've decided there's no real benefit to letting it sit once it seems good and dry...which it does. So insulation goes on tomorrow and then maybe a little marshmallow roasting. What I can'decide on with the Sairset is whether it is better or worse to follow the small-to-big fire process. The mortar heat cures, and, presumably, that would mean high heat so is it better or worse to not get it up to curing temperature for a few fires...?
