Good, the vent/chimney is fine. In your last picture, I can see dampness coming out of the oven and into the stand. You probably need to seal the whole thing, and maybe try a long medium fire to dry it out.

It was raining last night so I am not sure that it is coming out of the oven. What do you seal it with. I am doing a long fire tonight.

If it is cementious stucco use something like Prime-A-Pel, but that will not bridge cracks. If it has cracks use an elastomeric paint.

The oven design looks good. It may not be fully dry yet. The fire has to be pretty big like this:

What are you doing to prevent rain from entering the front and soaking your oven floor?
So far, it basically seem like you have yourself a wet oven.

"What do you seal it with."

I agree with George. For starters, keep your oven covered with a tarp or sheet of poly between uses. Ordinary stucco is not waterproof or even very "water resistant".

Even when dry you need a BIG fire to burn it "white". About 1 cubic foot of wood split down to 3 inch diameter in all at once. You should stuff so much wood in that just about touches the sides and top. The flames should be licking out the door.

Thank you to all for help with this issue. I will be using a tarp until I can seal it in the spring next year.

Thanks again.

Elastomeric paint over stucco will make a huge difference. A dry oven is a happy oven. I learned that one the hard way with wet stucco and oven floor, too.
