It will be fine, just parge the interior with refractory cement.

It is not necessary, but as a rule, unlined chimneys are parged. For an oven, a foot or so should be all you need with refractory, that is about how high the flames will lick.

I just went through your oven album after seeing it your sig. I have to say, I am amazed at how much you accomplished, and how close the end product is to your original design.

I am just now (like, this week) finishing my oven house/outdoor kitchen. Last coat of stucco goes on tomorrow, I hope... I can't believe you got all that done in one summer.

Hope that spring has now sprung in Iowa and you are baking up a storm in the oven.

Hey, thanks deejayoh! Last March 21st we had the slab poured (this year it snowed!), and since it was a dry (and incredibly hot) summer, there weren't more than a handful of days when I couldn't work on it. It did take me until the end of October to lay the last brick. I had just left my job and didn't really know what to do with myself during the day, it was a fabulous transition project (I recommend a pizza oven build for retirement.)

Your build is incredible too, as I just left in my comments there.

We did have pizza outside Friday night, but nearly froze, there is still ice on the north side of the oven, even with patio heaters it is a bit chilly out there. Another week or two though and I'll be out there all the time I'm sure. Oh - and all my tiles seem to have stayed stuck too, even with this harsh winter - hooray!

Funny, I left my job at the end of the year. That's how I am finally finishing up my oven. Wouldn't call it retirement yet, but the break has been nice!
