I'm not sure where you can buy one that is ready made, but it need's to be remembered that whatever you use, as a form, needs to be removed after the oven is built.

I have cut one out of several pieces of ply and intend to install them in such a way that I can remove them piece by piece.

Cheers,

Les

Just use old 'styrene fruit boxes and sand. Easy to remove and you dont use a lot of sand.

This is my first time using a forum for anything so I hope I am doing this correctly. If not any guidence would be apprecieated.

I have an oven that is a custom made masonry type that is wood fired and is exterior in an outdoor kitchen. For reasons that would take too long to explain I need to convert it to gas. I already have propane for two large gas grills next to it and want to install a gas burner in the oven. The interior is approximately 4 x 5 and about 20 high. I would need to get the oven up to between 500 and 700 degrees for my needs. I guess I am looking for a burner with fittings to retro fit it. I hope this is enough information, if not please let me know.

We do not consider gas burners safe in domestic ovens, and discourage their use, and the discussion of how to build them.

Not only are they not safe, they are not efficient unless integrated into the design of the oven.

I have checked with local masons and potters. It seems ther is only one source of firebrick in the Us A company in Ohio and they make only 26% alumina brick. and only in a few sizes aroun 8-9.5" by 2-4" by 4 - 4.5".

I wish FB woudl sell their bricks esp the 12x12. or sell a kit that is in the 27" range. 36" is just too big for our needs - more wood wasted heat and polution. longer heat time. 2 or 3 batches 3 loaves of bread is plenty for a small family.

Does anyone have experience with soapstone for an oven floor? no seams and looks nice. heat transfer is 4x brick.
