Default Re: Hi from Southend-on-Sea, UK

Hi George - Welcome to the forum. I'm a newbie myself, and was fairly shocked by the cost of firebricks here in the UK. My advice echoes dmun's - watch ebay - I picked up 35 firebricks for a tenner a couple of weeks ago. This will do me for my hearth, and I plan to use either red commons or engineering brick for the dome. I'm also going to try using concrete insulating blocks under the hearth - there's some more info on it on my other posts and in my blog.

My oven build is going slowly right now, due to family and work. But I have vowed to cook the Christmas turkey in it, so I'd better crack on again soon!

Carl

Hi Carl,

Thanks for the info. I've actually given myself until March next year - you can't rush these things!

I've looked into the engineering bricks - don't they need more fuel to get to that maintainable temp?

Good luck

George

Hi Lee,

I'm having trouble finding firebricks anywhere close - one of the links in this thread is for a place in Dudley - apparently, they are around 75pence each. If you are interested, we might get a deal if we put in a double order! At least saving on delivery - let me know.

Cheers

George
