Default Re: Refmix vs Heatstop

Getting in a little late.

I used both on my oven, ran out of Refmix. Bought Heatstop after a bit of a drive. I prefer Refmix. The main thing I learned with both - is dunk the brick in water or the fire brick sucks all the water out of the mortar very quickly.

They both clean up well after several hours of setting.

I think you only need mortar for your dome and vent. You don't have to mortar your bricks down (unless you want to), and leveling the cooking floor bricks on a bed of sand/fireclay works great and is easy to do.

My two cents. :-)
