    I know this would add cost, but I am thinking for those of us with kids, and over 6’4” tall, you might consider building a wooden frame with a cement board on top to build the oven on. Keeps kids and pets from touching the hot oven and back friendly for the taller folks. Great tutorial. Thank you for sharing.

    What about arsenic in the brick. I have been told by my construction worker neighbor never to use brick for gardening because it can leach arsenic. Any research on that?

      Yes I agree with your builder on that, so FIRE BRICK is best or the clay bricks. I haven’t done a ton of research but it sounds correct!

    Your oven looks great! I noticed you’re looking to replace some of the cement in your oven with something like firebrick. I’m using a similar oven with the cooking compartment completely made out of paver stone (top, bottom, sides, etc.). It made a really good pizza, though was very hot, and hard to control temperature (mine reached 830 – 900+ F degrees). I’m not so worried about it falling apart, but wonder how much risk there is using it to cook on, i.e. do pave stones emit hazardous gas under this heat, will this affect food, etc.or dissipate? Do you have an insight about this aspect?

      This sounds awesome! I did research and linked the sources in the blog. Basically the reports show that concrete can explore if heated too quickly. But lots of other people said it wouldn’t, so I honestly and am not sure!!!!! I will keep doing more research!

    You can add a hollow level on the bottom for wood storage.
