i have been stuck on the start of my dome. i'm excited to be at this stage but..... i am worried about all the negativity towards the portland and fireclay mix.... everyones wants the refractory mortar used. like HEAT STOP 50 and Refrax..... well i am just scared to start because i want to do the best thing for life of the oven. i will probably use it 2 to 3 time a week. 8 to 10 times a month, will that be a problem for the 1:3:1:1 FORNO recommended mortar mix? or i see a guy doing this on traditionalovens.com 10 : 6 : 2 : 3 – Sand, Fire Clay, Portland cement, and Lime. will this be stronger ? sorry for being a pain with all these questions i just want to start and i have what i need. i just can't get my hands on the HEATSTOP or Refrax. it's to high for shipping. what do you think ? thanks -Leo
