Pre-mixed refractory mortar - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

  • Pre-mixed refractory mortar

    Can someone direct me to a supplier that carries pre-mixed refractory mortar, I live in Brooklyn, New York. Any supplier in the area, or even in New Jersey would be appreciated.
    Thanks Jean

    from the rumford site:

    Brooklyn Mason Supply
    4100 Glenwood Road
    Brooklyn, N.Y. 11210
    718 859 6500 (fax 718 859 0989)

    Bigger selection of the things you need:

    Progressive Brick Co.
    190 Route 17 North (190 & Rte 17, south off I-80)
    Hasbrouck Hts, NJ 07604
    201 288 2121 (fax 201 288 3671) 800 875 BRIX
    (Ask for Ron Burrows or John Soderman - huge inventory of Rumfords and chimney tops. Distributes throughout NY metro area.)

    You'll be happier with the dry mix like heat-stop. Mixes easily, dries to a hard waterproof strong bond, cheaper. The pre-mixes are not as good.

      Re: Pre-mixed refractory mortar

      Thanks for the fast reply, I had already tried Bklyn Mason Supply and they had only some kind of mortar in pails(no good). So, I just went to the website u suggested and will e-mail Progressive Brick co, to make sure they have the heatstop 50, b4 I make the trip. Thanks, Progressive is only about 45 minutes from my address in Bklyn.
      Thanks again..Jean

        Progressive Brick is great. They have red firebricks. They have heat-stop in 10 and fifty pound sizes. They have the full line of rumford and other superior clay products in stock. It's 45 minutes from me, too, (I'm in Union Co. NJ) and worth the trip.

          John Soderman relied to my e-mail and they have everything in stock, I will most likely go this Saturday to pick up what I need, and I will probably get the fire bricks there too. Will keep you posted of progress.
          Thanks Jean
