  • Square bricks

    Hi everybody...

    Thanks so much for all the useful information!

    I was able to find some cheap 20x20x9 cm (7 3/4 x 7 3/4 x 3 1/2 in) firebricks. I was wondering if for the dome, I should cut them in half twice, creating four 3 7/8 x 3 7/8 x 3 1/2 inch pieces from each brick, thus making each chain 3 7/8" tall; or just use whole bricks making each chain 7 3/4" tall.

    Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly apperciated...

    Hi Santi,
    it would depend on the oven size that you intend to build.
    If you were planning a larger, 42" or larger, I would use the full brick height on edge but a smaller oven will need significant cutting to get a nice clean smooth line for your oven interior.. Maybe for your soldier course use full bricks on edge, then the next 2 courses, use half bricks and then your planned 1/4 bricks from then to the top.

      Hi Neill,

      I'm planning to build a 48" oven (we love our whole pigs in South America!)... Would you still recommend the same layout: whole height for soldiers, half for two courses, ant fourths for the rest?

      Thanks again!
