Default Supplies in Edmonton

Hello Friends,

I'm a complete newb to the wood oven scene but studying hard to start an oven in the next couple weeks. I'm in Edmonton and wondering if anyone has experience sourcing supplies here? Look forward to tapping into some wisdom and thanks in advance!

Hi there,

Welcome to the Canadian site. I built an oven last summer at my cottage in Sask and secured all my supplies from Clayburn Refractories out of Edmonton. The company is based near Abbotsford in BC but they have a facility/store in Edmonton. I contacted Gary Beier (gbeier@clayburngroup.com) 780-468-4100 ext 221. or Greg Usher - sales manager (gusher@clayburngroup.com) 780-918-8982 cell.

They had everything i needed and prices were ok.

They are located at:

16010 - 118th Avenue, Edmonton

let me know if this works out for you, and good luck with the oven.

Gary Collins

Thanks so much! I ended up getting everything at a building supplier called Brock White. It was very convenient since they had everything including concrete, cinder blocks, insulating blanket, etc. so it all came to my house in a single delivery (5 pallets!) The only thing I skipped on was the insluating FB board as the price was quoted at $125 x 4 pieces. I just poured a second vermiculite pad instead. Laying down cooking floor tomorrow, now that I've solved the mystery of what the hell fire-clay is! Thanks for the help! What lake are you at in SK? (Riders 4-0, W00T!)

I used Brock White as well. They were very professional and took quite an interest in my build.

I'm happy that all worked out for you both. I had a heck of a time finding supplies and then getting them shipped, but all worked out well. As a bit of trivia, it turns out that there used to be a refractory brick company in Estevan Sask which has since closed. They made all the refractory bricks for all the launching pads for NASA. Now That's Heat!!

The first night we fired up my oven we had about 35 people out (big family) and made 24 pizzas. This summer I did Croissant and Pain au Chocolate one morning for breakfast. Great food and lots of fun. I make the dough and set out the supplies but everyone has to stretch out their own dough and assemble the ingredients. I run the oven and cook them all. Everyone has a blast, especially the kids.

The cottage is at Last Mountain Lake. I live in Vancouver though so I don't get to use it as often as I would like. I'm planning a second build for the backyard here in Vancouver.

Good luck with the build.

(I'm posting this for other Edmontonians that find this thread.)

I also got my firebricks from Brock White. They're $3 each, and come in 9x4.5x2.5 and 9x4.5x1.5 in sizes. (The actual dimensions are about 1/16th in smaller.) I also got a gallon of heat resistant mortar for $26.

Rona sells cinder blocks for $3.5, which was the cheapest I found.

You can get medium-grade vermiculite at Lowe's. Comes in bags of 1.5 ft^3 (actual amount of vermiculite is probably around 1 ft^3, though) for $20 each.

You can also try some of the gardening places for vermiculite/perlite. I found large bags at a place that specialized in hydroponic supplies and it was much cheaper than the hardware stores.
