As a general rule, in a given kiln run of brick, cream/buffs will be higher fired than pinks/salmons (remember, this is among the same group of brick). That said, I have firebrick available from almost white through the reds to black and they all meet the same specification.

Well spotted , yeah ive got a full 4" of space to pack with ceramic blanket. Still deciding on igloo finish or square brick up for the enclosure
oven newbie-029.jpg
it seems like most guys have a large joint at the back of the bricks , The mortar im using which is like a premix putty would dissapear pretty quick so ive been cutting the bricks 3 angles. What a pain
The supplier has told me the oven will work alot better with a minimal mortar joint but its gonna get hard to cut the higher i go.

You are doing a vey nice job cutting your bricks. I hope mine look as nice once I get started cutting. still working on the hearth here in Minnesota.

That looks to be a great location for your oven right next to the hot tub
