  • Oven Floor Material

    Anyone have thoughts on the materials used for the oven floor? Does this have to be brick? Can it be granite? I have seen some posts about soapstone. Any thoughts on pros and cons of all? I was thinking it might be good to have a one piece floor rather than all the seams of bricks. But I don't know the heat threshold of granite or its insulating properties. Thanks.

    I found a few posts on this topic that indicates it might not be such a good idea...cracking and popping. So I don't think I will be using it. Thanks.

      You can use granite on your entry outside the oven, but a granite surface is supposed to deteriorate under higher heat ranges.

      If you are thinking about building a brick oven, my advice is Here.

      I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.
