Thanks Ken. I like your vote. Even though I've enjoyed my build, I'm getting tired, I want to be done, and I just want to eat...Soon!

I was thinking even if there are cracks, the blanket and the perlite/mortar cover should keep them in check anyway.

I agree... Because of the way the bricks are positioned, I doubt you'll ever have a brick fall or come loose in the dome (arch is a different story ). Several layers of blanket and vermiculite over the cracks will keep the heat and smoke where it belongs.

Man that FB blanket is amazing! Yesterday, during the cure, the oven never got hotter than 600, and it was 450-550 most of the day. I stopped putting in more logs at about 3:30 pm. At the end of the cure, I placed bricks infront of the entryway, since I don't have a door yet. I just checked the interior temperature, and it is at 266.
