A Resist set should equally value Stam and Resist on a 1:1 ratio.

Fire Resist:

Helm of Might w/ +20 FR. should be strongly considered and is equal to if not better than Dark Iron Helm.  Provides 10 less points of Stam + FR than Dark Iron Helm, however gives dodge, 7 def and 30 unbuffed AP.

Shoulders:

Pauldrons of Wrath  (second BiS) Provides 17 more points of Stam + FR than Dark Iron Shoulders - which you state.  Also gives block value for shield slam damage, 7 def and 26 unbuffed AP.

Fireguard Shoulders (BiS) Provides 30 more points of Stam + FR than Dark Iron Shoulders, better than T2 for pure FR on Rag.  For tank + FR T2 shoulders for BWL drakes and MC trash.

Cloak:

Fireproof Cloak  (BiS)

Chest:

Breastplate of Wrath Provides 10 5 more points of Stam + FR than Chromatic Flight.  Also the high def is > the avoidance from agility gained on Chromatic Flight

Bracer:

Bracelets of Wrath Provides 2 more points of Stam + FR (they have no FR), but gives more EHP and AP.  I'd highly recommend that Wristguards of True Flight be used once you obtain your other BiS pieces to increase threat in your FR set.  I understand not adding to list though since no FR on them.

Gloves:

Gauntlets of Might Highly recommended as well as an alternative to obtain the + threat, though for a pure FR standpoint, Dark Iron gloves are better for EHP+FR.

Belt:

Lava Belt (BiS)

Legs:

Emberweave Leggings (BiS)

Boots:

Sabatons of Wrath (BiS) Same Stam+FR as Core Forge but more Def and Block Value for threat, and 26 unbuffed AP.

Ring Slot 2 (to pair with Ocean's Breeze)

Archimitro's Ring of Reckoning for increased EHP, or Band of Accuria (or any +hit ring) for more threat depending on raid dps. No FR on the item I understand if not on the list.

Trinket Slot 2: (to pair with Onyxia's Trinket)

Blazing Emblem (BiS)  use the cooldown in the event that your pally gets knocked back out of range, dies, or shammy totem expires, shammy dies.

Weapon:

Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker (BiS) More EPH+FR than Alcors, + threat.  You mentioned it on NR set so you should have on FR set as well.

Dark Iron Reaver More EPH+FR than Alcors

Ebon Hand More EPH+FR than Alcors, DPS and has a proc.

Shield:

Elementium Reinforced Bulwark is (BiS) due to the high EHP and increased shield slam damage once you get other BiS FR pieces.  No FR on the item I understand if not on the list.

A good way to offset the gear as well.
