Hello again, thanks for all the prompt replys on my questions.
I am building the matone barille (the smaller oven). I noticed on one of the instructions for the base there is mention of using just plane mortar (base instructions) for the framing bricks. In the oven instructions it lists high temperature mortar for the frame bricks. Does it matter that much??
I am having a hard time locating all materials for the high temp mortar mix. I bought Sairset from our local store only to find out on the forum that it is NOT recommended- so I removed the one layer of framing bricks that I started on. So- heat stop would be reasonable? How many bags would I need?
The mortar between the framing bricks is tough to make look nice- the mortar kind of gets everywhere…any tips to make it look better? I suppose I can just wipe it off but it was hard to get off the bricks completely.
thanks so much!!
