New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Fire brick for sale! 500 bricks

    I live southeast of the Denver area in Colorado. I have 500 standard sized fire bricks and maybe 20+ larger sized fire bricks (various sizes 14"x14"x2, 9"x9"x3"). I built a 42" pompeii last year and it has been wonderful, but I am not going to build another one short of an act of God catastrophe! I had pallets and pallets of these things for years from a the demolition of a foundry. Have sold them for every purpose under the sun before I built my oven. The bricks were dry stacked on inner walls of the foundry with no mortar. Have had them stored outside. I thought I would put them up here to see if there was any interest in this area for enough bricks to build a mongo oven! I really live out in the sticks, so selling smaller quantities has little appeal from a logistics standpoint. I was getting $2.00 for small quantities and less ($1.50) for larger quantities. Can send pictures.

    How much are new firebricks in Colorado? In California new Pacific Clay firebricks are $1.08 and new Muddox firebricks are $1.18.

    Are prices so much higher in other parts of the country that people are buying used foundry bricks for almost twice what new bricks cost in California?

      Over $2.00 per brick for 26% alumina. Are you in need of brick? Or is this just a friendly note to suggest I am way of on my price? Checked Rio Grande, Shale and Threewitt Cooper. New Fire Brick Independent seller on Craig'slist this morning.

      Let me know if this satisfies your question.

        I'm am in need of firebrick (that's why I looked at your ad to begin with).. That being said, I don't need many more and I'm sure it wouldn't make sense to ship it from Colorado.

        But to answer your real question, I have no idea if your price is way off. If I knew your price was way high I would have simply said so.

        The reason for the post was that I was blown away that used firebrick was going for two dollars or a buck fifty. But if that's a fair price, so be it. I had no idea that there was such disparity of price from one part of the country to another. But if that's the deal, and it's a reasonable price, then it is what it is.
