How to Cure a Masonry Pizza Oven

Once the BrickWood Ovens foam mold has been removed and the oven has had time to dry for 3-4 days, you can begin the firing process. This is the most important of all directions!

The purpose of a slow cure is to ensure that all moisture in the firebrick and the mortar exits the oven slowly and evenly. Drying the oven too quickly can result in moisture turning into steam - and steam can possibly crack your awesome new oven!!

How long should the curing fires burn each day?

I found this guide:
Day 1 - 300°F for 6 hours or more
Day 2 - 350°F for 6 hours or more
Day 3 - 400°F for 6 hours
Day 4 - 450°F for 6 hours
Day 5 - 500°F for 6 hours
Day 6 - 550°F for 6 hours
