  • type of brick

    hi all,

    could you tell me if it would be possible to use fire bricks for the hearth and Red clay bricks for the dome?

    I am trying to make the oven on a very very tight budget!

    Look at Bookemdanno's thread, he used solid reds.

      Why is this thus? What is the reason for this thusness?
      I forgot who said that.

        I think it is more dependent on how you intend to use your oven.

        If you are a serious cook and expect to use the oven a lot, 4-6 times per week, then you really need to stick with the firebrick.

        If this is going to get used 10-15 times a year, then the solid clay brick will probably hold up just fine.
        The cost of living continues to skyrocket, and yet it remains a popular choice.
