Cooking surface
Hi Guys
I have built my base and am ready to start the interesting bits!
I have a hearth sorted I just need to know what to use for the cooking surface
Is it safe to use vermiculite cement? clay tiles?
I thought prehaps a solid natural stone slab would be ideal as you can buy stone baked pizza.
I have ask around and no one seems to know
I have also had beeen told to use a metal plate
Can anyone advise, The product need to be easily available
Thanks Cass:confused:

Hey Cass,

Firebricks are perfect. They get hot, re-heat efficiently and do a good job of holding pizza heat.

Re: Cooking surface
Thanks James
Are they safe to cook directly onto?

Re: Cooking surface
Is firebrick safe to cook on? Absolutely. Vermiculite cement would get into the food and is not a good heat sink (it is an insulator). Firebrick is the material most ovens here use for the floor.
