Material suppliers in Adelaide - 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!

  • Material suppliers in Adelaide

    Hi all,

    New to the forum, looking to undertake a WFO.. Was wondering if anyone would know of good suppliers in Adelaide. I'm having difficulty finding firebrick suppliers and refactory mortar for the dome. Got pretty much everything else sorted, if any one could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks :

    I cant help you there (Im on the other side of the planet)...but I know there are several folks from Adelaide on the forum. Have you tried posting on the Australia forum? Or if you search Adeliaide and send messages directly to Adelaide folks....

    Good Luck!

      Hi Rob and welcome aboard.
      Thermal Ceramics at Beverly are a very good start for most of what you're looking for, very helpful and quite reasonably priced.Firebricks are and have been a problem in SA although Littlehampton Bricks make them for round $5.30 each, their seconds when available but they can't/won't tell your their content.. Use their pressed clay pavers at around $1 each as they ae fired at 1200˚C which won't cause you any problems when using it as you will only get to around 500˚C.

      Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

          Hello Rob,
          Welcome to the addictive world of WFO's.

          Suppliers I have used in Adelaide are;

          Littlehampton Bricks - for firebrick seconds and fireclay. I used firebricks for the entire oven. The small added cost was worth it.

          Solardome Hydroponics at Chapel Street Norwood and Gladore Hydroponics South Road - for Vermiculite in large bags at a good price

          Energy Efficiency Centre South Road - for fire blankets.

          AB Industries at Salisbury for the flue.

          I used poormans mortar with littlehampton fireclay, bags of washed sand and cement and lime.

          You may also find some of the WFO stores in Adelaide will supply some of the items you need.
          Traditional Brick Ovens at Kent Town is one that I got pizza tools from. I know they also sell the other bits as well.

          Good Luck
