I paid $1.15 per firebrick at a masonry supply store. Just call a few masonry or builder supply stores (not home depot!) and ask for firebrick or fireplace brick. The same places that carry concrete block and regular brick usually have the firebrick. Refractory mortar might be a little more tricky. All of my local places had nothing but the very thin "cement" which is not good for thick joints. You need mortar. If you can't find it, you might be able to find the fireclay and make your own.

Try calling Castaic Brick. They helped me find a local distributor. They do produce fire brick and are just north of LA so not that far to Vegas

Specifications: Thin Brick

as for mortar, the store here has it and you can google around for other high temp refractory mortars.

Check the Photo Gallery here. There's a build going on currently in Las Vegas and I'll bet he'll be willing to point you in the right direction.

If Vegas is like the Phoenix Metro Area, look for a concrete and masonry specialty shop such a Marvel. Home Depot down here does carry Fire Bricks and Lowes was willing to order fire clay, flue liner, etc.

What is sad is that I work at a smelter and all the materials for re-builds come from the mid-west! Think about all the mines with fire processing (mainly gold!)

Try searching for Refractory supplies. I found on here in Salt Lake. Our local brickyard, where the make bricks and blocks carried multiple pallets of whole and split firebricks.
