Questions on a new forge

Recommended Posts

I've been using a charcoal babrbecue forge and a gas forge depending on the project and am looking into reinforcing the bbq forge. So, I'm wondering if regular old kiln dried bricks and normal cement to hold them together is a decent heat shield?

NO  look at a fireplace---notice that they are not using regular red brick in the hot zone!   Away from the hot zone no problem.

Regualar morter is made with cement, cement will break down. Plaine adobe dirt, fire bricks (get the 2x4x8" ones as they are cheeper than the 1x2x8" ones,)or kiln shell es from a potery place.just set them dry. Plane clay and sand about 3 to one makes adobe.
