Default Re: Why not insulating firebricks for hearth insulation?

I used a few in the area around the oven opening. I got them cheap (free) from a local potter who was breaking up a kiln.

Vermiculete is plenty strong enough, way cheaper, pours into the shape you want and has equal if not better insulating values.
