Question on firebricks - 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!

  • Question on firebricks

    Hi all,
    There are 300 odd firebricks for sale on Aussie eBay which are not far up the road from me.
    Here is the link:

    Fire Bricks pottery kiln or other uses - eBay, Other Building Materials, Building Materials, DIY, Home. (end time 15-Oct-09 11:38:57 AEDST)

    Is there any reason why these wouldn't suffice for my upcoming oven build?

    Are you sure they are fire bricks? They look as they have a few red ones in there. Could have come out of a fireplace? If they are solids they may do

      Well no, I'm not sure at all, though I assume they are, it sounds like they might be out of a kiln or something. Don't know what the red ones are.

        You need dense firebricks (heavy) not insulating firebricks (light)
        Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.
