Default Re: Oven dome will not go white

The photo is deceiving, the Chimney is at the front of the oven. (I will show better pictures tomorrow). I don't understand what you mean about the vent.

Sorry for all the questions.

Chimney and vent are the same thing.

This picture, if it's the one in question:



Did make it look like the vent wasn't over the oven entry. As you say, looks can be deceiving. I suspect wet oven/undersize fires, if it's properly insulated, over and under.

By vent, I meant the smoke chamber. It appears to be located in front and above the inner entry as it should be.
But that photo is sure deceiving. That chimney looks like it's sticking out the middle of the dome. A side or 3/4 shot of the oven would be nice...

Thats the picture. I believe there was one layer of insulation between the dome and the concrete.

I think we're getting somewhere now. After a long fire is your dome exterior hot to the touch?

Your only option would be to fabricate a sleeve to fit in the flue that would extend down into the oven, but even that may not work.

I am putting on a fire tonight so I will check. I don't believe it is hot to touch though

How are you protecting the oven from rain? If you used regular stucco as your final layer that can soak up moisture over time and down to your insulating layer.
Find out from whomever built your oven about the insulation used and how much.
