  • Cooking surface

    Hi Guys
    I have built my base and am ready to start the interesting bits!
    I have a hearth sorted I just need to know what to use for the cooking surface
    Is it safe to use vermiculite cement? clay tiles?
    I thought prehaps a solid natural stone slab would be ideal as you can buy stone baked pizza.
    I have ask around and no one seems to know
    I have also had beeen told to use a metal plate
    Can anyone advise, The product need to be easily available
    Thanks Cass

    Hey Cass,

    Firebricks are perfect. They get hot, re-heat efficiently and do a good job of holding pizza heat.

      Thanks James
      Are they safe to cook directly onto?

        Is firebrick safe to cook on? Absolutely. Vermiculite cement would get into the food and is not a good heat sink (it is an insulator). Firebrick is the material most ovens here use for the floor.
