Soooooo I could probably cook some salmon in a cast iron in the oven don't you think? It will be the fourth day of curing? Maybe????? Or just let it be?

Yeah, if I were you I would cook something. A salmon in a cast iron is a great idea. At this temp it will take a little longer, but you could also put the salmon on cedar plank and slow cook/smoke it that way.
That is how you get the most of your oven, cook what ever you can at the temp it is at  ;D

So there is quite a bit of smoke while I am curing. It is white smoke. Is that normal? Is my wood maybe not dry enough?

Nothing wrong with that pic!

The low temp curing fires will produce smoke. As will every fire you make, as it starts up. When you finally get it up to pizza temps it will not smoke much at all!

I find the initial smoky part of the firing very pleasurable, and its also usually the time when my neighbors tell me "how good that smells!!!"

That picture actually doesn't do it justice it was smoking much more than that. So I am on my fourth day of curing. How long did everyone else's curing take?

So day 5 I wake up to a little rain. It really put a damper (no pun intended) on my mood. I have started a small fire. So suggestion anyone do I crank up the heat for the day 5 curing process or tone it down for better weather? Any help would be great. It has stopped raining for now but I think there is more to come today. Thank you,

Chad

Very eciting. You must be itching to bake.

Extending your chimney 3 feet would probably double your flow rate and help keep the front of your oven from getting blackened.

Yes I meant to. I woke up to rain and had no idea it was supposed to rain. I'm in the process of covering it now.

Call around to some chimney/fireplace stores in your area and see what they reccomend. I don't think you need anything fancy - I would think just single wall stove pipe with a rain cap on the end (I'd think you'd want a cap in any case). It shouldn't cost very much. Home Depot/Lowe's may even have what you need. Alternatively, you could get a mason (or you) to extend the existing chimney with something that looks just like it.

I bought my oven from this guy. YOu would have to check and see whether the size would match up to your chimney.

Oh awesome! Thanks for the pics and website. I will check it out. Yeah I had a few too many last night at the neighborhood poker tournament too! No choice to get up and help with 3 year old and 9 month old kids since my wife is out running a 5K! Oh well at least I got going on curing the oven.

By the way Jconk the tools worked like a dream. I was launching pizzas with ease and spinning them like I had been doing it a while! Thank you again!
