    Are you doing brick over that? I had heard that high-temp refractory is not considered food safe. I wouldn't be super worried, but it's something to consider.

    no brick, this it what was spec'd by a refractory company for the base. they have supposedly done many ovens.............
    worth looking into though
    not food safe and bad for you could vary greatly
    I wonder if firebrick is actually food safe???
    will post what I find out

    Firebrick is just fireclay- which is a major ingredient in pottery, and food safe. I wouldn't expect that refractory cement was actually dangerous at all, but did hear "not food safe". I'd guess the company that makes it wouldn't want liability is all.
