  • how thick is to thick for a hearth cooking surface

    i am thinking of using a 3" thick HD Firebrick. reason for it is b/c i can get 12"x12" sheets which i prefer over the bricks (less edges, etc).

    when does it become to thick and will take to long to get to desired heat? i have been reading that it should be between 2-3".
    any thoughts?

    Three inches should be OK, it might take a little longer to get to temperature.

    The refractory tiles come in two inch thickness too: I think Harbison Walker has them.

    I thought about using them, but they are a lot more expensive than bricks, and I got cheap.
