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.

  • 5 star review  Gave this as a Christmas gift. I asked for delivery on the day after Christmas and they made sure that they delivered even though they couldn't get a delivery service to delivery. They actually delivered it themselves. When I had some components that were missing, they hand delivered them on a Sunday. Cannot say enough about the great customer service. Love the pizza oven too. Fun to use and made great pizza!

  • 5 star review  Outstanding products and customer service from a great family company. Scot and his team really do go above and beyond for their customers and stand by their products for life. I would not consider purchasing a wood fired oven from anyone but Scot and BYBO and if you are considering one of their oven, you will not be disappointed. As Scot says in one of his many tutorial videos “Love Life and get Cooking” !

  • 5 star review  Incredible ovens! My family has always been searching for a great pizza oven for our backyards and all I can say is WOW! Let me start off by telling you that all of my family owns pizza shops and has for the last 35 years, so novices we are not. We were very excited to see what this little backyard oven could do. My god! Did a better pizza just come out of this oven then at my shop? Are you kidding me!!!!!!! My brother-in-law and I were floored! The crust developed perfectly and the toppings melted right into the sauce. We cooked up some red, green, and yellow bell peppers ahead of time in a cast iron pan in the oven before throwing them on the pie. Did I mention I’m not really a fan of peppers? But something magical happened in this oven between the Smokey wood and the heat turbulence in the dome of the oven I’m guessing. Or maybe it’s some magic at this point, I just can’t be sure. Anyways, now that I love peppers on my pizza I can stand here and say, this oven has got it all. Simplicity for the novice, and the seriousness of a modern pizza chef. I wish I would have gotten one sooner from you guys. Donald LeMay Stone Fired Piizza
