  • oven temp

    Our oven is finally finished. For curing I have been using a propane torch setup(used for weed burning) and have slowly been heating and cooling. When you speak of "oven temperature" where does this come from. At the setting I'm currently at, I can get temps of 600+ from the dome and mid 300s from the walls and a little less from the floor.

    I have been heating over a 2 week period. Should I continue to slowly crank up the heat to get dome temps of 800+ and floor temps of 500 or am I ready to go?

    Once you don't see any steam coming from the oven, slowly crank it up to 1000F. Let 'er rip.

        Two weeks is more than most, you should be dry. I would think you are ready to go.
