Default Re: Tapered Bricks?

Hey Mike,

No disrespect taken! I was merely commenting on how much work I could complete while not working and how little I have gotten done on the oven since I'm back to work. Yes, it can take forever but who cares? Once you're pulling pizzas out of your oven with one hand and a glass of wine in the other, you'll be entitled to be creative with the answers to the inevitable questions... uh, it's 800F in there... yeah, those are special bricks... um, it took about two weekends to build!!!

John

I am VERY happy to hear this because I bought all used firebricks and I would have had a heck of a time cleaning them perfectly. If I am able to use the exposed cut side, that will help me tremendously.

For Ken or Les, if there does happen to be a very small amount of the old residue from the old firebricks exposed to the inside, will it eventually burn off if I happen to fire my oven several times before using it to cook?

The residue will be long gone after curing.

I like the idea of tapered bricks, and i am in the planning stages of my oven. The tapered bricks means much more cutting, and i could not find a post about what the best saw would be to use or any strategies for cutting these bricks. Also, with the tapered bricks, what is the angle you cut them on? Can someone post the link for me if they know what i should be looking at or let me know in a reply? thank you!!
