I fired my SC-2 kiln for the first time and turned it off because of a strong smell. I also found dark discoloration inside the kiln.

During the first firing, you may smell a strong odor from your kiln. This is normal and is caused by the burning of binders in the ceramic fiber firing chamber. The odor is accompanied by a discoloration, which disappears after the kiln reaches about 1000F (537C). It is nothing to worry about.
