What a ten pound pail of heat stop looks like, fingers included for scale:

It's gonna take a lot of these to do any oven building.

I used 150 lb of heatstop to build my oven, using bricks cut into thirds.

15 buckets at $74 each? Forget about buying refmix, just buy an oven!

Rather than open a fourth bag to put on the flue, I mixed up some portland/fireclay/sand mortar. It wasn't quite as smooth, but it bonded very well to the flue pipe. I think it would have done a fine job on the oven.
I'm building a Pompeii Oven in Austin, Texas. See my progress at:
