Found this fire brick retailer in Fenton MO - 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!

  • Found this fire brick retailer in Fenton MO

    I was wondering if anyone has any personal experience with this brick supplier. One thing I found interesting is that if you look at the second link it hows some pre-cut firebrick that looks like it might make a nice dome oven.

    It might save on the cost of a tile saw, extra work etc. You would still have to cut some of your brick to fine tune your build but this was the first time I ever saw pieces that were already cut to shape. Of course you have to add the cost of shipping, so these are all factors that must be weighed appropriately.

    I'm new at this so I would suspect someone has already ventured down this road but I did not see any info when doing a search of the forum.

    hi cmf,
    i live in illinois about 45 miles from hi-temp. i have purchased all of my wfo refractory materials from them...being one of the few in the St. Louis area who sells retail. they have fire brick, various thickness and sizes of insulation board, several types of the ceramic insulation, morco brand refractory mortars and castables, etc. their website says they carry many shapes of the fire brick but they do have a limited supply of shapes and sizes. i bought the standard size brick and cut them on a wet saw. the only thing they do not carry that i needed was the course vermiculite bales which i dumped over the ceramic insulation to help hold the heat. found the cheapest place was a horticultural supply shop. i don't know what shipping would be to MD but i was able to pick everything up at their shop. tom is a knowledgeable person who runs the shop if you can get over his mumbling voice. good place and i plan on buying from them again in the future on my next oven.

      Yeah, I have access to fire brick here in MD and I will just cut my own on a wet saw as well but I was just curious if those pre-cut bricks were worth their use. Thanks for the help.
