Default Re: light duty verses medium duty

The denser the better for heat retention is what I have read and been told. BUT, it comes at a higher cost in fuel (wood) and usually a higher cost for the bricks (as many of us have found). Its been proven that a properly insulated oven with an insulated door that has been built with light duty bricks is plenty efficient and retains heat beyond expectations. Pizza tonight, roast or bake tomorrow, and slow cook or smoke the following day...all pretty common. If cost or availability are factors, go with the light duty. If you want to spend extra money, put it into insulation and fabricating an insulated door, they will make the most difference.
