The opening of my oven faces almost due west for the best air flow.  I started my curing fires 2 days ago (Monday night and last night).  I'm seeing about 40-50% of the smoke go through the chimney, but quite a bit just rolls right out the front.  Is this normal for the first few small fires?  Or is it due to the fires not being very big? 
  Seasoned hardwood, Douglass fir kindling, and paper grocery bag as a starter.
Any smoke that goes through the chimney rolls back to the east, but smoke that pours out the front of the oven collects under the pavilion roof. 

 Thanks

I think I found some answers in a previous post - and it probably has to most with the "less than seasoned" wood I picked up from the local gas station.   Hey, I was excited to get to curing the oven and didn't have a bunch of options.  LOL.
 When I get things wrapped up this weekend, I'll submit my build pics.
