  • Finding Firebricks in Norcal

    I live in Northern California.

    Call a local masonry supply or building supply store (not the big
    boxes), preferably one with a commercial contractor orientation. They
    should carry them. You want thermal firebrick (not insulating
    firebrick). They'll weigh about 8 or 9 lbs each. If they carry those
    they're also likely to carry the sack of fireclay you'll need too. If
    you call one & they don't carry them, just ask if they know who does.
    I've always found these folks very helpful. If you know someone in the
    building trades you can ask them too -- they may not be masons
    themselves but they're likely to know who the good suppliers are.

    Back here in CT I found mine at Sanford & Hawley which is a building
    supply company which does a lot of lumber & stone supply business to
    contractors. I also found them at Wethersfield Building Supply which
    only does stone, brick, etc. and not a scrap of wood in the place.

      when i hunted for fire bricks for my bread oven in the bay
      area/california, all seemed to be made by a company up in sacramento
      and sold through diffenrent distributors
      anywhere from $1.20 to $1.50/brick.
      i can supply you with phone # for places in my area if that's where you
      but otherwise going through the yellow pages searching under refractory
      bricks, fire place, bricks etc will get you there too, as long as you
      use the check list put together by jim under pompeii oven in fornobravo
      you can not go wrong.

      good luck

            hi abby,

            you live right at the source!

            muttocks manufacture is one of the two brands of fire bricks found
            around here.

            i bought mine in oakland at morgan bros patios # 510 357 5220.
            but i am sure you will find a retailer in sacramento.
            you can call muttocks in sacramento directly, i don't remember if
            they sell them right
            at there making site, but i called them to find out the exact
            compositions etc. and
            for a retailer in my area....

              Try Industrial Minerals...a ceramic supply company in Sacramento.

              Industrial Minerals Company
              7268 Frasinetti Road
              Sacramento, CA 95828


              They will have your fireclay and sand too.
