Default Attaching Flue

We have finished our vent and are about to attach the flue. I have read that you should only use a small amount of morter to attach it. How much is sufficent? Just a small smear of morter up the side of the flue and down on the firebrick it's resting on an inch or two up? Also we are planning on making a brick chimney around the flue. I saw there should be a gap between the brick and the flue. How big a gap? Is there any reason we shouldn't use regular brick for the chimney? I've attached photos. Any help would be appriciated. Thanks

Normal bricks are more than enough and lighter as well . I would leave a space around the ceramic flue to take into account Expantion. You could even put some insulation between the flue and brick if you like
I really do admire your arch that is very good work . I think you should post it at the top of the forum page for all to admire!

Dave,
Thanks so much for the reply and kind complement! Sorry not to have replied sooner. Here's a photo of what it looks like now. All we're waiting on is a delivery of the ceramic blanket. Once we get the dome insullated we'll stucco it over and start the curing process! I can't wait to get the oven fired up! Thanks again!

Nice looking oven! You can (and probably should) start curing before you put on the insulation and stucco.

deejayoh,
Thanks for the kind complement. We're stating to cure it today (pre insulation and stucco), can't wait to get it all ready for a big fire...hopefully in a week or so.
