Firebrick in So Cal - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

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!

  • Firebrick in So Cal

    Anybody looking for firebrick in So Cal should definately check out Pacific Clay in Lake Elsinore (just off I-5 at Lake Ave on Temescal Canyon Rd.).

    The firebrick I bought for $.25/ea. brand new manufactuer's seconds had some minor color distortion on the flat side and hardly noticeable. Certainly won't be noticed after a few hot fires.

    I've read that some people prefer other brick to Pacific Clay, but the price sold me. You should know this brick is rated for 2300 degrees and normally sells for about $1.07/ea. at the factory. My local brick store was selling medium firebrick for $1.47.

    Call first to see if they have any manufacturer's seconds in inventory and talk with Mike in the Sales Dept. (951) 674-2131. I took the last of what they had for the most recent production run. I was going to buy the entire Pompeii kit but the freight was a killer to my budget.

    Thanks for the tip. I wish I were closer. It looks like I will be paying about $1.50 locally here near downtown LA where I am.
