You should see if there is an O & G Industries anywhere in your area or the surrounding areas. They are a hugh company and their prices are really great. There are 4 around our area. 2 are 25mins away and the others are about the same but in the opposite direction. They carry everything imaginable. Decorative round flues, thin stone, Heat Stop ($50..00/50lbs). Give them a Google search.

Update. I guess I should have checked Google first. O & G Industries is strictly in the Northeast.

So now I'm confused...Do you want medium or low firebricks? The masonry supplier here in Eugene told me that all firebrick was the same. I'm fairly sure they sold me high duty firebrick, at 2.77 each. I'm frustrated with them, because they sell Clayborn firebrick and they don't know zip about the product. Their reply was "return it if you want to..." I am going to return it and will probably have to go up to Portland to find the right thing.

All firebrick is not the same. You want "dense, low duty" firebrick for a brick oven. Or perhaps easier, you want a firebrick that is 25 - 40% alumina. A normal 9x4.5x2.5" firebrick should weigh about 7 - 8 pounds. If it only weighs 4 pounds or so it's the wrong type (insulating firebrick).

If they are selling Clayburn products at your dealer, you want their "Flame" product. The data sheet is here -
