Brick count - 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!

    i am going to buy my firebricks this week and was wondering if you know
    how many you used for your 36inch pompeii dome, which is the size i am
    going to built.

    We used 168 firebricks (9"x4"x21/4").
    Please keep in mind that we used 12 bricks out of 168 to build an additional
    insulation layer that many consider to be quite unnecessary.
    I'm going to buy about 20 more to build a flue support and to finish the
    Hope this will help,
    PS We get our firebricks from a local brick factory ($.90 a piece).

      thanks for the count!!
      what do you mean by an addiltional insulation layer - wouldn't the
      brick add additional thermal mass?

      i hope you will be able to post a few pictures ........

        Hi Simone,

        I'm going to build a 36 inch pompeiian too. Have you made any progress on yours? How large a stand did you build?

          36" brick count

          Hi Manny,

          Good to see you here. After the oven, we'll get you hooked on Italian flour. :-) Simone's oven is beautiful, and she is in the process of putting the photos (there are many) on this forum - they are already on a Yahoo Group.

          It's up to me to get the right brick counts and materials lists for the 36" oven on the standard Pompeii oven pages, and I will dop that shortly.
