Firebricks - Do these look like they will work?
 
I found these bricks at a local dealer for 70 cents a piece as stated in an earlier post.

I can only find low duty on their site but perhaps I'm not looking close enough. Do they seem like they will work?

If so I'm going for 1 pallete! 616 bricks... Here I come oven and smoker!

70 cents? That's a steal. Those look fine to me. Low duty is exactly what you want. Go for it!

Happy building! Keep us up to date.

Yeah right on target I concur...and 70 cents is a steal...I thought I was doing good with 99 cents

I remember being a little confused about the firebrick I was choosing and was told to weigh them. 8lbs seem to be right. If you are unsure you can always try that.

I think an average oven is about 200 firebricks...are you sure you need 600?

...sure, the rest are for the *next* oven. You know, the one where you get everything right and actually know what your doing. ;)

Sound like the extra are for a smoker.

These bricks look perfect to me, and probably better than the wire-cut ones I used. Are you getting some red ones too?

Re: Firebricks - Do these look like they will work?
 
Nope, just the tan-red color they have. I'm fairly certain 600 will do. It's costly up front but for 70 cents a piece how can I not build a smoker and maybe a fire pit/grill/or fireplace! If nothing else I can help my pops build himself a smoker and an oven assuming mine comes out ok and that he wants my help...

The supplier had a customer that was contracted to build a commercial oven or something along those lines and then lost the contract after special ordering the bricks from ohio. Their loss my gain! Now making the 4 - 6 trips to transport all the bricks in my titan is going to be a pain! If only I could get my parents 2500HD for the weekend. 2 trips and I'd be done!

Exterior is going to be a field stone that matches my house. Something similar to http://www.home-deals.net/Repository...fc0f3976b7.JPG but mine is not square although the square wouldn't look bad. Perhaps some red brick trim around the arches of the oven?

Thanks for all the help!

Sounds great Mustang! NICE SCORE on the bricks!
