Steel bases are great if you can do it. Forno Bravo sells them:

A substantial plate can substutite for the support slab, and directly support your under-floor insulation.

I had my base fabricated by the same company that built the island for my grill and counters. They used square steel tubing, with cross bracing corner to corner, and a single center support. I used a 2" insulating board and set the floor directly on that.

So I understand correctly you have a steel frame and instead of the insulation concrete you used a styrome board, and on top of that placed the fire bricks?. What is the base of the stand attached to is to a concreate slab or on posts?

Correct, my floor [a FB Casa110] is set directly on the insulating board. The base cabinet [for lack of a better term] is set on a concrete slab [located in SoCal so no need to worry about cold weather].
