I can see the glow of fire in a small crack about 1/16" wide and about 3 inches long. I hit 700 degrees yesterday on my curing schedule and the crack appeared. The entire thin crack goes from top to bottom. The insulating blanket shows signs of smoke. My home brew mortar was about 1/4" where the crack appeared. I am not concerned about structure issues. The tapered bricks, dry fit test would keep the dome structurally sound. So, should I mix up a batch of home brew and increase the thickness on the dome to address the crack?. Will the crack reappear with the addition of mortar?
