Clayburn firebrick - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

  • Clayburn firebrick

    Hi, I am starting to put together the material for a WFO. I found these bricks for sale used for .50 each. Can anyone confirm that these are suitable for the floor and the dome? See the picture attached. Also I am having trouble sourcing refractory cement, vermiculite, etc... in Victoria B.C. Any help is much appreciated.

    I also should include that the bricks were from a school that was demolished. The school was originally built in 1910.

      Any solid clay brick is fine for an oven. they dont last as long as refractory bricks but ok.
      The English language was invented by people who couldnt spell.

      My Build.

        Thanks for for the advice Al.
        I am going with them for the dome and vent. Might have to buy new firebrick for the hearth floor as I only could get 300 of them.

          300 Bricks are more than enough to build the complete oven, unless you're including an enclosure. If you're under 30 don't use them for your hearth, if you're over 40 fugitaboutit.

            I bought the bricks! I was still a little worried until a sales rep from Clayburn that I emailed replied that they are in fact "medium heat firebrick" that they don't sell anymore.
            I get excited about a lot of things but saving money is a great feeling.

            Still planning my 42" WFO using these bricks for the hearth floor, dome and vent.
            I am going up to my summer home next week to pour the foundation slab and will upload pics when I get back.

            awesome forum!!

              Are you sure that you want this at your "Summer Home"?? I would think very seriously about that! Summer home, low priority, Home, castle! IMHO.

                Summer home first, home home next!
                Still not sure about the bylaws in Victoria, not that it would stop me.
