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!

  • Superior Clay Black Firebricks Ok for oven floor?

    Are the black firebricks ok to use on the oven floor? It says on thier website that the black firebricks have "These bricks have an applied matte black glaze which produces a consistent solid finish."

    I would give them a call and explain the usage. Superior Clay is very familiar with WFOs and will surely tell you if these glazed firebricks are suitable.
    In my younger days, I was a vendor of Superior Clay's in Ohio. They were a top notch company (fantastic people, great product) back then (15-20 yrs ago), I don't think they will steer you wrong.

      Hmm. A glazed brick on the oven floor. My guess is that part of the secret of the brick oven is it's porosity. I'm not sure glazed tile floor would be effective even if the glaze were food safe.

                Talk about the high priced spread! The Brits and the Aussies can stop bragging about their firebrick prices!

                      Wow! at almost $8 a brick, I guess I won't be finding out! I didn't like them THAT much.

                      And I thought I was a little disappointed when I got a price from the local small yard supplier for $2 a brick for the yellow HC Muddox.

                      Eric.
                      Thanks, Eric

                        Got a phone quote today for $1.28 a brick, sounds good to me.

                        Just need to go get them, figure out where the oven will go, Design the structure, pour the slab, set the CMU base... etc, etc.
