"Curing" is another one that bothers me. We refer to the process of holding in moisture so chemical hydration will harden concrete, but also use the term when driving the moisture out, when drying the oven.

Both comments are good observations. Any WFO history buffs out there?? Perhaps it is as simple as "regional jargon."

"Chains" is not a masonry term, it is just a layman's term for course.

You cure the cement, then you cure the oven (as a whole). You don't cure ham the same way you cure a cold.
