Jaymez,
If you're after Fondue try a search on the forum for "Ciment Fondue" , "Castable refractory", or "calcium aluminate"

Dave, I did just that, but I didn't learn anything new. Wiley wrote about an aggregate if I'm not mistaken . Some taprock or basalt. I'll be looking into those posts that seem to be the origin . Pics imminent.

I looked into This Metal Dome design and the ratios of basalt are posted in Wiley's page and ... I like it, However I will be building a Pompeii Oven out of firebrick using a good old taper and design implementations discussed previously on this forum.

1. even though the metal dome prevents the refractory from coming down onto the pizza if and when it cracks up ...I still think that brick are probably an easier maintinence issue and can be replaced much easier and will , in theory, "be used" for a longer period of time(that appeals to me).

2. I have also had a very fun idea of my own that utilizes the idea of maintaining an oven for further use. It has to do with the exterior design... but as in any design there are pros and cons that I will work out as much as possible before bringing it here for serious consideration for implementation.


But here are some pictures as promised I do like to upload them myself instead of hosting them here (hope no one minds)
