I used super duty fire bricks on all of my build they were new surplus from an old steel mill (65% alumina) they don't get any hotter than you let them. They were all tapered so I used them where that tapers allowed for best fit. The only drawback I had is the are very hard on diamond wet saw blades, they wear them very quickly. I went through at least a dozen, but they were the cheapo blades also. You can look at my build to see where I used them. Also, Oasiscdm (aussie) is doing a build with bricks tapered like yours

The 60+ alumina kiln brick that I have do not break easily with a brick set. In fact, I can barely mark them with a brick set and hammer
