This is not correct. They were not fired to as high a heat or to as even a heat as modern brick. There are several differences, the primary one of which is that the old brick were molded or pressed, not extruded. As it relates to being used in an oven, they are softer and, of course, solids, that make them better than modern face brick.
So this allows them to withstand the high temps without spalling? Learn something everyday...

I am slowly collecting my building materials. Im getting re purposed bricks from craigslist for free. So far Ive got about 80 bricks. I need alot more, Ill collect as many free bricks as i possibly can, when the time comes ill purchase whatever i need to complete the work. I dont think ill luck out on the firebricks, those i would have to get new.

No. The fibers/dust are probably just as bad - you don't want to breath it. Vermiculite can contain asbestos but living in the states you won't have a problem.

You really don't want to breathe any dust.
