During the curing process I thought I went slow, following the FB schedule. I even went a little slower. A couple small cracks in the mortar on the outside of the dome. No big deal. I insulated with 4" of ceramic blanket , and covered with stucco. Fired the oven about a dozen times and enjoyed the pizza, bread, pulled pork, cookies and assorted other treats. This weekend, I fired again and noticed a new 1/4 inch crack between the 1st course of bricks This is on the side I move the fire when cooking Pizza. It continued, between the joints for 3 coursed of bricks. Why? How? I do not think/hope it will cause structural issues since it is at the bottom of the dome. but I am still concerned. Has anyone else experience similar issues. I would like to hear your crack stories and your experience with cracks. Has anyone had a complete dome failure? Share your crack stories.
