Default 1st fire ??

I have completed my dome and it has been air drying with a fan in the int for 3 days now the temp has been in 90's and around 70 at night I was wondering how long should the dome air dry before starting to cure either heat lamps , charchol or wood. also can I start to cure the oven without havin the outer arch completed

I lit my first wood fire after a week of air drying (no fans or heat lamps).

I did not complete my outer arch before my first fire.

oh sorry! yeah, I guess I should have mentioned that!

Yes, absolutely - all went well. I lit a series of increasingly hotter fires every night for about 10 days. I got a few small cracks but nothing to worry about.
