I am certainly by no means a seasoned potter, but I fire only bone dry pots, and preheat for 2 hours no matter how dry they are. Never had a pot blow up or pin holes in glazes in my 60+ bisque and glaze firings
Clayart folks have the best advice 
Either learn from your mistakes or follow what our gurus have to teach us through this site
Forever grateful
