Hi, My name is Jay. I've been reading for a while and started looking into the costs involved with building my own WFO. I live in Massachusetts so I can't even begin for a few months with the frost line as it is. I read more than once that a red clay oven is better than no oven at all and with the cost of fire brick quoted to me at 1.44 a piece, I decided to go cheap. I also referrenced a book suggested by NissanNeil where the builder/cook used free red clay bricks for his commercial oven. So I told a friend of mine in the construction business what I was going to do and asked him for the best place he knew of to buy the brick. He came up with a great idea, have a brick party in the spring. Make up fliers with what I'm building have our friends and family bring one "specified" fire brick to the party for every member of their household. Everyone of the people invited will someday enjoy what's cooked in the oven. I though this was a great idea. Has anyone ever done this before and how did it turn out? Jay
