Is this appropriate for sticking cobblestone to hardiebacker fireplace surround? The average weight of the stones is 5 lbs. We will be grouting gaps between rocks later with colored grout. Does this come in nutmeg color?

Answer:This product can indeed be used for this purpose. It will of course be necessary to support the stones for as long as possible when adhering each of them into position. This product is only offered in the buff coloration.

I am building an outdoor fire pit from stones of varying sizes that are from the surrounding beach. Will this 1-Gallon tub of Buff Colored Fire Clay work to cement stones in place?
By Will M. on July 13, 2015
The manufacturer does not recommend this in an outdoor application. I (as well as the manufacturer) would highly recommend the Castable Refractory Fireplace Cement
for it's ease of use and durability. Also, the product does not require heat-curing.

How many fire bricks will a one gallon tub of mortar install if I am use it on the bottom, top, both head joints and the back of the brick?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 28, 2013
Answer:The closest measurement we have obtained from the manufacturer is 10 to 11 square feet of coverage, when applying the product to a thickness of 1/8" on all surfaces of the brick. This is when using 4.5" x 9" standard firebrick. I apologize I was not able to obtain more information.
