If you don't min such type of visual effect you can cook in wood fired oven in its simplest form, having built only the firing chamber without any chimney, vent or hot air passage or flue. Meaning the exhaust exits out right through the oven entry/door when it becomes free to go as it likes. Just be careful not to get to close to the entry when hot inside. Structural matters for the chamber apply as in any other oven building.
For people building ovens with chimney included; as soon as you finish the firebrick part (and of course when you dry the water out) you can start to cook in it while work on the chimney and other decorative parts continues and gets finished gradually later. Why wouldn't you cook ASAP? r
