    The chimney bricks after scrubbing with a steel brush

      Because you have such a tall flue pipe, a considerable amount will be running down the pipe and accumulating where the pipe meets the bricks. This could be your problem and may be where water is entering. I use high temperature silicone to seal this joint. Because the conductive steel pipe will expand way faster than the surrounding bricks, a flexible material is required at this point. Another entry point for rain is water running off the outside of the dome and accumulating at the base, so also check there for any cracks. Once the oven is quite dry the dome exterior can be sealed.

        From the pictures it appears those "gingers" are aligned with the mortar joints in the flue bricks. Is it possible they are soot stains?

          Hey TEDFB I have not been following too many threads due to life distractions, but just caught up on your build. I really like your door - did you build it yourself or did you hire it out? Do you have any pictures of the build process? If you do it would be great if you could post them on the show us your door thread. Even some close ups of the door from different angles and a description of materials and build sequence would be very helpful to future builders.

            Thanks guys, noted about the high temp. silicone at the chimney connection, although I made one, the silicone sounds like a good idea. I don't think that the water problem is at the dome base as it is well sealed with no visible cracking, the plaster on the side is also angled down away from the dome. I don't also think that it would be soot stains as I sealed the inside well after completing the dome. My legs sticking out of the entrance. The gingers only appeared after the long period of heavy rain. I will see if I can get my photos together and make a post on show us your door
