Red fire bricks
The local brick place has regular colored, and a light red colored firebrick for the same price. I don't recall seeing these red colored firebricks in anyones pictures, nor have I seen it discussed. Could anyone tell me what is different about them and/or if it's okay to use them? My dog ate the receipt but it was a little under 1 dollar each.

Re: Red fire bricks
Sure, some people have used red fire bricks. And some other people get rather jelous of it, because they're rarer than regular coloured ones.

And the Bager is making his dome out of both...

Re: Red fire bricks
I love the red firebricks, just couldn't find any. Frances is right, badger's oven is sweet looking with both types.

PS-The bricks were under a dollar each? Man I got ripped off, mine cost $1.31 each.

Re: Red fire bricks
Thanks for the info regarding red firebricks. I was impressed also regarding price. It was 89 cents each now that I think of it.

Re: Red fire bricks

Another builder used them to alternate a couple of rings and I liked the look.

I just lucked out in that my brick supplier happend to have about 30 leftover from a previous job. I'm just planning on using them for 3 rows then I'll use the tan colored. I have seen black, light red and some other colors...

Yes, both my oven and my fireplace is made from the red firebricks, I drove all the way up to Progressive Brick in Passaic County to get them. I think they look a lot better then the beige ones.
