  • Finding the materials in the UK

    Anybody know of any national suppliers of the firebricks and mortar for my pizza oven in the UK?

    I live near Chester (North West)

    Many (most?) people (including me) seem to use Midland Refractories, but if you search a few of the forums you'll see a couple of other places too.

        Hi There,
        I have found 5 refractory suppliers in UK. Try Sheffield refractories. The cheapest I have found and also the nearest for me and probably to you. I am at work at the moment so do not have the list. Also try ebay, for firebricks (rare) and storage heater bricks (cheap), chimney flues, insulation etc. At least ebay may be able to susides your build.

          I have a thread on Barter/Exchange - I now have 50 storage heater bricks. Each about 230mmx220mmx50mm but in Hampshire, southern UK.

          They make a great hearth - and cut into 4 there should be enough to make a 90cm dome.

          I would ebay them, but it would be collection only. I'd rather they went to build a WFO.

          I can post pictures and weight on request.

              I found Sheffield refractories to be the cheapest including postage bny a big margin. it is worth calling all the suppliers as the most expensive was twice the price of the cheapest
