The IFB is a great option for floor insulation vs CaSi or V or Pcrete. If it works for you act quickly though. This is over half off what you could get insulating bricks for. Note: IFB are not suitable for the dome, only under the floor fire brick.
Apologies for the silly question, but I was under the impression that floor and dome were all built using the same brick, and it was simply a refractory brick...? Can you expand on this as it has thrown me a little...

Thanks for the info, Russell. I will check it out. I was about to start shopping for one. Much appreciated.

Hope this explains your question. BTW, SLC builders, the bricks are long gone.
OK, thanks. Understand now.

Unrelated matter, but to pick a few brains... I am going to Rome and Tuscany for 10 days form 27th August (family wedding). Any suggestions on what I should check put there, or pick up there if possible? Any recommendations on restaurants, stuffing flour in my luggage on the way home or San Marzano seeds etc!? Anything else (apart from sticking my head in a few ovens, to get some ideas before I begin my build?)

Butt kickers, each one unique and requires that a paper template then cut fit, cut fit, cut fit. But getting there.

First attempt at using a cast iron skillet in the WFO, cook a peach cobbler on day two after the pizza party (450 F). I just can't understand why everything that tastes really good is not good for you.............the recipe said something like 500 calories per serving then we topped with vanilla ice cream to boot, but drank light beer, LOL......
I think that is the same reason ribs taste so good!
Oh BTW nice heirloom tomato from the garden, weighed in at over 1.5 lbs.
And this is good for you.

We will see.

I will take a few heirloom seeds, say a 5-10, I have a really small garden.
Russell,

Yes I just did a little research, WOW this would be devastating to Park City for years even if the standoff only happens for this season.

I will save some seeds for you.

You have made a very interesting cooper cover for your oven. You produced items themselves? Or in your region, you can buy ready-made?

Oven Looks great Russell! I wish I could make cobbler in my own WFO.
