I found the following recipe online for castable refractory...
"By volume, it is 3:3:4 Portland cement:perlite:silica sand, mixed together thoroughly, then combined with 4 parts fireclay. The dry ingredients are then moistened to the texture of “stiff cookie dough,” packed into a form, and allowed to dry thoroughly before bake-out." This attributed to backyardmetalcasting.com.
Can anyone comment on if this is a workable mix for stove components?
joel: Daryl, they are just a box and a heating element. most folks here in alaska that build themselves one, just knock together box from 1x material and put a camp stove on the ground. much safer to use an electric burner and cast iron pan yo put chips in

Daryl: Howdy, Joel! I wish I could 'like' your comment. I usually build brick boxes to smoke food because I love the even temps of clay and how it stores the heat. But yeah, if I throw something together, then I could use a metal box of some kind with coals.
