Post Re: Texman Build

TEX

i started with 235 - 9" x 4.5' x 2.5" firebrick, 18 -12x12 floor tiles and 3 bags Alsey flue set. ended up one bag short on the flue set. And, i wasted a lot of brick, but ended up using every last brick and tile. I over ordered so i wouldn't be short and i knew since this was all new that i would make many mistakes, which i did. None were damaged in shipping and shipping was $420 for me.
There are several places in DFW that should have the right medium duty brick; that should save some money. I couldn't find anything close to me, so i had to order and wanted to be sure i didn't run short. I used the extra tiles for my landing.

Keep the questions coming and welcome to the forum.

Smile Re: Texman Build

A couple of pepperoni pies this weekend. Lesson learned on dough: the ferment needs to be at least 36 hours. I actually had workable dough and it tasted great. Good dough takes some patience and i am a slow learner. I like the recipe i am using, but you have to give it some time and the results are worth it.

Looking mighty tasty Tracy. Must be nice having the covered kitchen this time of the year. At least it would be for me! We are living through what feels like endless rain and windstorms right now.

How does that compare to other builds out there?

I don't remember where I posted my 48 hour numbers, but I lost slightly less than five degrees per hour for four days -if my memory is correct.

Just showed my wife your final build photos.........She was mightily impressed!

Unhappy Re: Texman Build

I have a couple of my inner arch bricks that have come loose. I am thinking due to the small margins that the only way to repair is a hi temp refractory caulk that i can pump into gaps on either side.

What is the right product and is this the right way to repair?
