With my finished oven I'm noticing wet fire bricks on the cooking surface near the inside and back wall of dome.
The rain must creeping under insulation mortar shell.
Is this going to be a serious problem?

Hmmm - 

That is a first - but it's fixable.

First and foremost, find out where / how that water is getting into your oven - and SEAL IT WITH MORTAR!

Secondly - Let's go ahead and make the entire oven watertight w/ an ORGANIC masonry sealer that is available at Wally World -

Since this is an organic sealer, there wont be any toxic fumes or smells emanating off the oven.

But find where that water is getting in and fix it!
