Red fire bricks - 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!

  • Red fire bricks

    The local brick place has regular colored, and a light red colored firebrick for the same price. I don't recall seeing these red colored firebricks in anyones pictures, nor have I seen it discussed. Could anyone tell me what is different about them and/or if it's okay to use them? My dog ate the receipt but it was a little under 1 dollar each.

    Sure, some people have used red fire bricks. And some other people get rather jelous of it, because they're rarer than regular coloured ones.

    And the Bager http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/21/b...ld-3726-2.html is making his dome out of both...

      Re: Red fire bricks

      I love the red firebricks, just couldn't find any. Frances is right, badger's oven is sweet looking with both types.

      PS-The bricks were under a dollar each? Man I got ripped off, mine cost $1.31 each.

        Thanks for the info regarding red firebricks. I was impressed also regarding price. It was 89 cents each now that I think of it.

          Another builder used them to alternate a couple of rings and I liked the look.

          I just lucked out in that my brick supplier happend to have about 30 leftover from a previous job. I'm just planning on using them for 3 rows then I'll use the tan colored. I have seen black, light red and some other colors...

            Yes, both my oven and my fireplace is made from the red firebricks, I drove all the way up to Progressive Brick in Passaic County to get them. I think they look a lot better then the beige ones.
