Default Planning stages

Hello, I want to build an outdoor fixed brick 2 in 1 pizza oven / pig rostisserie behind my house. I have a general idea of what I want to do, but is there a way around using fire bricks, as they are extremely ecpensive and I need to build 2 ovens. Thanks.

Normal house bricks are fine, they are fired in excess of any oven temperature.

House bricks, as Al mentions, are fired at 1050c, far in excess of what you will ever get in your WFO. A lot of ovens have used them.

wow thats a big relief guys thanks. fire bricks are about 5 dollars a brick around here, which when you want to build 2 ovens and need to line an existing fire pit, can get quite expensive.

I would strongly suggest reading this before buying your bricks:
Brick Oven Design | Choose the Right Brick Oven Brick

Apparently, the quality of common house brick varies from region to region, country to country. As a general rule, it's probably better to use firebrick.
