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.

  • Scot is an absolute pleasure to deal with! He answered all my questions before purchasing and then some. Then when it came time to order he made it so easy. I received the oven and it was amazing everyone is raving about the quality and the look of the oven and of course my pizza. In my opinion if you’re thinking about purchasing an oven it’s a no brainer.

  • I bought the extra large family oven and use it for commercial purposes for my business. These ovens hold up! For the price you cannot beat the quality. I have used the oven daily for the last 2 years and it’s amazing! Great product. If I ever need replacement parts or advice on the oven Scott the owner is always there. Great guy!

  • We purchased the Grande XL two years ago. The oven is very well designed and built to last. It takes about 45 Min to get it really hot. We have cooked well over 100 Pizzas and they turn out great. Very fun family activity and our neighbors love it as well. Customer Service from Scott is excellent. Thank you.
