Tips to Choose Best Outdoor Brick Oven

An Outdoor Brick Oven can be a great way to create satisfying outdoor cuisine and is an aesthetically pleasing alternative to a barbecue. However, as with any appliance it helps to know what you are buying in order to find the best outdoor brick oven to suit you.

The first thing is to consider what type of bricks the oven will be made from. A medium duty firebrick is made up of 35 per cent alumina and 50 per cent silica. This is ideal for the dome of the oven and the floor due to the fact it can heat up rapidly as well as withstand the high temperatures needed to cook something like traditional Neapolitan pizza.

Red clay brick is the brick we typically associate with housing. While it can be used for the dome, it is recommended you do not use it for the floor of the oven as the heat can cause the bricks to crack as well as taking longer to heat up. Concrete bricks are not recommended because they will not withstand the heat.

High duty firebricks are more designed for furnaces, so may not be appropriate for a pizza oven while insulating firebricks can be useful for insulation.

As with any appliance it is important to consider whether you want something portable or something heavier that will be weighted down outside. With the right approach and materials you will be able to find the best outdoor brick oven to suit your requirements.

  • I will never use my bbq again!!! I received my oven a week ago and I have spent the past few days cooking up a storm for the family and neighbors. It is a beautiful oven and you can tell by the craftsmanship that it is made to last. It was easy to put the stand together, and I was lucky to have some friends come by and help me lift the oven top onto the stand. Screwed on the vent pipe and it was ready to go. I must also say the customer service was friendly and amazing... I called Scot with a few questions and he took the time to answer them all and tell me about the oven. By far the best price online by far, and the shipping was free. I plan on spending alot of time in the yard this year, and now I will be able to enjoy my passion for cooking all season long.
