Firebrick size? - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Firebrick size?

    I'm wondering what the proper size of firebricks is. I found:

    2-1/4 inch X 4 inch X 9 inch
    $0.70 each

    brand new

    Something seems odd and I'm trying to figure out the duty.

    Size appears ok, although not 3", price seems cheap. Sure its not a std pale brick? May be a paver?

        Yep, those sound like the dimensions of the standard low duty firebrick. That's a cheap price.

          This is the message I received:

          I am not sure I understand low duty or high duty, but these particular fire brick are price right and will do the job you need in my opinion.

          As far as a pizza oven…or bread oven we also sell domes, entrance tunnels, etc. Examples of this can be found at Rumford Fireplaces

          Normally these brick would sell for $1.46+, however, we made an error on our inventory and purchased too many and need to turn them as we

          are overstocked.
          I know they had 3000 or so in stock. How many do you think it would take to make my oven (42" inch pompeii), a smoker, fireplace, and grill?

            Ahh, also forgot to ask, how many would it take per each piece?

              I recall using 277 brick for my oven (42 inch)- and I threw a butt load of scrap in the trash. For the price you were quoted (less than half of what I paid), buy extra...

              Check out my pictures here:

                Could you get a shipping quote to the UK while you're at it?

                Sounds like a very good deal on the bricks. I went to go measure one of mine and remembered I used every last brick.

                  Haha, I was thinking about getting 600 for the smoker, grill, and oven. Perhaps a little more? I can always resell them for close to what I bought them fore I'm sure :-)

                  The plans call for 200 (135 for the dome + 65 for the floor).

                  The smoker I want to build would be similar in size to this one(Hill Country Outdoor Kitchens: Outdoor Kitchens, Ovens, and Custom Built Smokers) and the grill I have no clue right now.

                  Thanks for all the help and if all goes as planned I'll be working on getting my bricks tomorrow!
