  • Hello from Kingston, Canada

    Hello everyone. I have been looking into building a brick Pompeii style oven for a while now slowly trying to source and collect the materials. The build won’t be until next spring, so I have plenty of time to think about design and base, etc. I want to do an entire kitchen or brick oven beside fireplace type idea. Anyway, in my searching I managed to find a gentleman who has a mix of 100 year old red clay bricks and regular red clay solids with a divot in the middle. I know that firebricks would be the brick of choice, but I couldn’t pass these up for $25.cdn.

    please give me your thoughts.
    thanks in a advance.

    There have been a few builder use solid red clays in their builds, many being from ballast on old ships. It is kind of a crap shoot on whether a particular red clay can handle the oven temps or flame exposure, some do, some don't. They certainly could be used as a base or veneer on your outdoor kitchen.

      Good score on the old bick.To back up Russell, they will come in handy on the build. But, keep scrounging for firebrick and other materials .
