    Fire Bricks

    Anyone know if they are available here in Los...must be somewhere as i see fireplaces about....or do they just use anything that might crackle and make nice fire side noises before explosion.

    How do you say fire bricks in Los speak ?

    I am thinking to make an earthen wood fired oven and need them for the base.

    They just use regular bricks as they seem to have no refractory clay, but they used them in the base for the still and the mash cooking bases and have had no problems with them, but wood does not get as hot as pressure spray oil tho.

    Never come across them. Brick is IT, fire is FAIMAI. you can try that but I'm guessing. Ask the missus.

    you can just use the local clay to make the oven, it will fire as you use the oven

    you could also use the local red bricks, which are low fired clay

    The base can be anything, from a slab of concrete to real stone, as long as it supports the weight

    here are a couple of firebrick manufacturers

    just google "fire bricks Thailand" and have a look through

    Cheers.

    Dont think concrete on the floor will be any good and certainly not normal stones.

    Have sat around enough camp fires with exploding rocks to know that.

    Lucky we have lots of clay on the plantation and stone.....cannot wait to taste my first wood fired earthen pizza.

    I think you should put firebricks on top of the concrete slab

    see links for firebricks

    Thats what I would presume, but for such a cheap earth oven, I doubt you need a concrete floor as base.

    The site i read sometime ago simply used a compacted clay base and then the firebricks.

    even better, do that

    i saw a program about someone building one, making the dome shape with sand then putting the wet clay on top

    really neat, esp when they took out the sand and the dome was left intact and the oven even worked!

    Don't know if these are any good to you or not, I dare say you've already found a few sites.

    You will get the search engine response you need by using the phrase "refractory brick", should be easy to get in Bangkok or Rayong, they are used in furnaces and boilers.
    happy hunting

    Should be easy to find this in Saraburi...

    They have many ceramic factories over there, and for this they use those bricks on the ovens...

    One might try getting away from the traditional 'fired' Thai bricks and explore the high-pressed, non-fired variety. Have a small following and tend to be a couple more baht per brick than the others, but are a fantastic investment - as they 'cure' and strengthen with age. Some years ago, I came across a Thai/Chinese gent in Sri Satchanalai that had the process down pat. A better value {in the long-run} and product....

    Many things do not have a "Thai word", around here they generally use the English word or a string of simple words to explain the concept. This the land of smiles not the land of smarts.

    ooo-eerrr

    I will be building a wood-fired brick/clay oven in the next few months

    I was thinking of making the form in sand, then covering with mud and small bricks, built on a base of concrete with firebricks

    the net has several design methods and look quite easy to accomplish

    You might consider an alternative, Nawty. Albeit, a more expensive proposition - a local {Thai} tradition of producing termite mud bricks. Solid and secure as all get out....I believe we've been down this road of chat in the past. I know a number of craftsman that create terracotta, kilns, cement, and bricks by incorporating this wonderfully 'strong' material into their product. I'm sure one can locate someone that plys the craft in your Korat region. Nonetheless, best to ya...
