Default Cheap Fire bricks - Sydney Australia

Hi Guys,

I've been reading posts here for a while and see that firebricks are very expensive in Australia. I'm about to build my first WFO and also did the ring around and found the best price I can get them for is $3.30 per brick.

I don't want to pay this price so I'm looking into buying a large load of them wholesale & passing the savings on.

Would anyone be interested if I can get fire bricks and sell them at a much cheaper price than $3.30?

I'm located in Baulkham Hills(near Parramatta) in Sydney.

i definately would. im local to your area as well.

i already purchased about 50 at for $3.50 each, and like u thought its going to be too expensive to do the entire oven from firebrick so ive gone and bought new boral blue solids for the oven and use firebricks for the base..

if you can get the bricks cheap i can always use the solids for other backyard reno's..

Great! I'll get things moving. I think the cost will be around $2.20 per brick. Please PM me and let me know how many you need, when you need them etc. Also, where are you located?

Cheers

Any other takes, I will try and get them all at the same time.

Harrison,
run with your high fired clay bricks for your dome. Firebricks are an unnecessary expense provided the bricks you use are high fired and not ever likely to meet that temperature.
Littlehampton Bricks over here in SA sell heaps of their solid 4" clay pavers for around $.80c each which are fired at 1200˚C for wood fired ovens and many people use them without problems as our ovens (well mine does anyway) gets to just over 500˚C

Hi,

I am also interested in firebricks. I am about to build the pompeii oven 42inch, so I guess I will be needing about 200 bricks or thereabouts? (this should cover the cooking floor and the dome)

many thanks,

Michael.
