Pricing firebrick
I live in San Diego, CA and the local Brick store is selling Fire brick for $1.35. Is that a good price? I'm Planning on a 42" Pompeii Oven. I start digging today!

I found prices in AZ ranging from $1.37 to $1.50. You've found a reasonable source.

Yep, sounds about right. $1.35 in Wisconsin too.

Yes, once you get out of fireplace land, firebricks become sort of a specialty item.

I lucked out on my firebrick. My local suppler, within a couple miles, has them for $1.50/each. I found a place about 15 miles away that looks like you took a trip back in time. They were selling them (full low duty solids) for $.95 each. It was worth the extra travel to get them there. I'm in Western Pennsylvania.

WOW!!! I get them here in South Carolina for between .70-.88 a piece. Maybe I should start exporting them to the west coast, huh :)

Re: Pricing firebrick
I would be most of the firebrick is made on the east coast and the differeneces in cost is the shipping. I found them here in NY state fo $1.25.

Hey Nikki,

Where did you get your brick at? I have been doing some shopping around also and have not been able to get them for less than $2.
