  • Brick count

    stanley,
    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.
    thanks!

    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
    front.
    Hope this will help,
    Stanley
    PS We get our firebricks from a local brick factory ($.90 a piece).

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

        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.
