Good to see you go "old school."

I agree - you should start the curing fires at the beginning. Two inches of rain is a lot.

Looks dry and is dry are too different things and now is not the time to cut corners.

Sorry bout your troubles!

I would restart the whole curing process.
I pushed mine, and I am the king of cracks.

So listen to the fellow who rushed it at the end!


What kind of gum did you use anyways??
I hope it was sugar free, or it may dissolve.

Ah...troubles, shroubles!!! The roof is still on, we got power back fairly prompt, and all is good. When the big tree above my bedroom didn't break, dispite all of the creaking, that put it all in proper perspective. Oven, shmoven.
It was, however, a helpless feeling seeing my sacred oven house being shreaded.

Oh, I didn't mean " tera cotta chimney flue", I meant "post pics". Try that one ya FFT! Hope your fingers don't knot up.

George, JW, and Acoma,
I'm glad we all agree. And since I am in no hurry anyway, dispite seeing Doc's chibata, I will start over - probably tomorrow. But like I said, I have had the heater in there for a couple of days. And it is a fairly powerful heater. I watched from the outside as the top became dry and then slowly moved all the way down to the soildier course. I turned it off last night, and this morning it was still warm to the feel inside.
The three fires I had last week were quite small and short. I heeded your advice, Robert, and purchaced an oven thermometer. When I start to cure again, I will have some kind of mechanical gauge as to when is enough or not.

I'll post pics..post pis..poss piss....AHH!

dusty
