Hello from Australia
Hi, everyone

Just found this great site about brick oven :)
Here in Australia, commercial available pizza oven is very expensive and I just can't affort to have one. With all these interesting information here I'm keen to build one myself, just keep my fiinger cross ;)

Welcome to the site mate.
Where abouts in the land of OZ are you from, I'm NSW but there seems to be a large number on here from adelaide for some reason.

I havn't started building my oven yet but there is so much valuable information and knowledge on this site it is amazing.

I'm in Sydney. ya I agree there aren't too many forum ppl in Sydney/NSW area. Even most firebrick suppliers are in other state (vic or sa).
My motivation to build a brick oven is very strange, recently I chopped down a big tree and tonne of firewood is left over in my backyard, so I'm thinking why not use them for cooking :)

Check out field furnace refractories in wetherill park, they are the closest place to me i think and even closer to you. I am not sure how they are on prices becasue i havn't really rang many places yet but they seemed fairly helpful

all the best

Re: Hello from Australia
yea, field furnace refractories are a good place to shop: I got most of my tapered WFO bricks from Darley's near Melbourne, but bought the bricks for the twin arches in my WFO, extra cal-sil and a s/s peel and raker from FFR.

Talk to Andrew (I got a very good deal from him!)...
