That is pretty clever.  Obviously he isn’t buying his concrete mix from Bunnings at that price.  Grin Grin Grin

Must have missed this post. Next project at home is a firepit to use up all the left over bricks from my BBQ, just may have to incorporate a couple of these into the design somehow...

I have always been told that fire and concrete don't mix.
Concrete can explode when heated.

Apparently you need pretty intense heat (cutting torch intensity) to risk having it explode. I googled fire clay as it would be a safer option, but jeez it's not cheap  Grin https://www.bunnings.com.au/lanko-5kg-156-high-temperature-mortar_p0760382

If you want to use a mortar that is somewhat heat resistant and not as costly as the Bunnings option, use lime, cement and brickies loam.
In a ratio of 1 - 1 - 4. There is more clay in the loam.
That's what I used on my pizza oven.
