This thread was in Newbie side but someone suggested I move it here. I have pretty much completed my oven by following some of the directions of members. I made a steel barrel type oven. I then put mesh, a layer of concrete with stones. The ratio was about 1:1:1/2:6 , Portland, river sand, lime, stones. I read that somewhere in the forum but can't find it now. It was REALLY heavy duty, hope it is okay. I then put a layer of red brick, then thermal blanket, then 2 layers of 1:5 Portland and sand. I would love opinions of how this will hold up and how best to cure. Should I let all this sit for a few days? I have read a week is best but being steel lined barrel type, is it different curing process? I am trying to get my restaurant open and am in a rush but don't want to destroy the work of course! Advice welcome.
