Default Brick Question

Can I use this brick for any part of the oven I am constructing? Particularly in the hearth or the dome.

Nowhere with heat, but anywhere else is fine.

It is fire brick that I received from a landscaper. He told me that he used this type for fireplaces. My main concern is with the holes.

I'm using them for my oven stand, will do a double brick in places to support the 2nd slab, from there oven slab, oven floor insulating layer and then oven floor will go on top of that

basically a house brick is it?

You need something that looks like this for the dome and cooking floor. Just make sure they are clay and not concrete.

"It is fire brick that I received from a landscaper. "

There is a difference between a "fired brick" and a "fire brick".
