Default Re: Castable Floor????

Ok so i've decide to go with the firebricks, but i have a couple questions.

First the bricks are wet, using these to replace the floor will this pose any issues, such as steam when i fire it up? Will this effect the old oven dome?

Second do i have to cure the floor or can i just fire it up to temp and get cooking?

thanks guys

Check out http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f28/...rill-2207.html (Casting Refractory - This is NOT a drill!)

This oven is still going strong after 50 some odd firings. The beauty of the mizzou castible is that the thermal properties are exactly the same as fire brick.

Sorry have missed this thread for a while. Yes, you will need to fire the thing slowly to drive out the moisture in those bricks. Fire bricks are not vitrified and therefore not waterproof, they are porous so you need to remove that water slowly.
