Default Re: strapping down the blanket. Why?

I was just reading the forum posts on curing. I finished building the dome about two weeks ago. In the interim I was working on other parts of the construction, studied and asked about the blanket, waited for it to ship... so it's been a while and I am assuming the time alone has cured much of it so that all I'll do when the perlite mix is finished is to do the succession of fires. I plan on buying an IR thermometer but have not yet so if I wait till it arrives and use it to assist as I fire up the curing fires the whole thing will have slow cured itself somewhat. But I have been curious about what exactly we are curing. Is it strictly the oven dome and floor or does it include the outer insulation layer as well? It seems as though it is the dome and floor if I can begin curing those even before I'm finished with the outer insulating layer, as I've read here before.

You can start your curing fires now,, many people cure the dome seperately from the finished oven... In other words, you will be pre-curing the dome, then you can cure the dome with blanket and vermicrete on it.. start your fires now !!!

you will get a lot of the dome moisture out of the way doing this
