Default new oven

I have built a new oven and heard that the inside dome should turn white once fired up. I have had a couple of fires and it remains black? Is that normal?

Thank you

Just means you need to build a bigger, hotter, longer fire. Post some pics of your oven too!

Is it okay to cook in with the black soot?

Thanks again

But during the curing process your low temp burns will keep the dome black for the most part.

The oven looks good. I linked the image to this post so it is easier for people to reference.

Refer to the pompeii oven plans for the curing process. In brief it is the process of a series of fires increasing in intensity over the course of a week or so to force moisture out of the oven dome.

Yes you can!! Pizza temps usually dont occur until close to the end of the process but roasting is great in the mid temp ranges.

Sure thing. In many instances you will not fire the oven to high temps so you will be cooking in the black dome.

Here's a pic of spareribs I did during one of the low temp curing fires:
