Yes that's a chimney.
Why is there a lot of black soot on the front of your opening already ridr? Because of the mortar less design?

From what I have seen most wfo's end up with black around the opening.  And while I'm sure that since the oven is less than air tight, with no mortor, the chimney does not work as efficiently as a regular one.  However I find that my rough chimney draws the fire that I have pushed to the right sided, straight across the roof to the left side and up the chimney.  I have zero complaints as to how this oven is working.  It is truly amazing and simple.  enjoy...dan

Yes, I noticed it's pulling the fire across top very well indeed.  :chef:
