Hi Jason, please read my posting "Re: Hardening of Outdoor Oven clay?" that is just right above this thread I wrote there why you experienced "weird smells when firing". Your concrete was perhaps not too dry just yet before you fired high to pizza temperature. Good to set small fires at first. The heat soaks through the whole structure and there will be no more smell in later firings. No worries no bad signs. This is like with a new product. Cover the oven well with insulation layers, ceramic fiber blankets are great too and then put on top a final weather finish. Let me know your website's URL we can link our sites. I was wondering what shape you make, email me some photos. Thanks. r
