    wow, that's the effort of a weekend? Impressive! It took me...oh...about five months to get that far. ;-) You'll be cooking in no time!

                        Don't fire it up too soon. Keep all the portland cement based concrete parts damp for at least a week. Two weeks would be better. In three weeks it will reach most of its potential strength.
