post #21 of 26
Thread Starter 

Okay guys just a heads up. I started a new thread on my build. It's under other builds. Very early stages but it's a start..........

post #22 of 26

I guess I fell off the map guys! I have spring fever coming and started thinking about my brick build which is a very mirror of Wes W. (thanks buddy)

 

I've been searching for the fireclay mixture recently for the firebrick in the fire box and on up to the damper. Here you are starting without me. lol.

Thanks for the insight of the mix and ratios Black Lab!

- Is it necessary to run fireclay after the fire box?? Wes, you know how you did yours- is it suggested to do so? (we will have those bars above the pit to regulate heat to 250*)

-I priced fireclay/refractory mix and is $1.20 per pound here.($64.00 per 50 lbs.)

-P.S. Is it ok to use hollow core veneer brick for life lasting efficiency or should it be solid brick?

Any feed back is going to be appreciated here as I am going solo as a master plumber and not a master mason..

 

1st person to answer all these answers will come over for my LINCOLN,NEBRASKA all famous ribs or pulled pork dinner for the family !!

 

This is my progress from last fall as many has seen before. I am glad I dug the footings seen from last fall. I am glad my son and I dug the footings (36"D x 8"W local specs) then or I would really be behind and not finish this fall.

1st pic is a grill/smoker on the right hand side idea. The left will be  a dog house for wood and a shelf for preparation.(dry fit ideas)

Thanks to all. Have a pleasant evening, Jim.

Hand made doors and matching firebox, not pretty but will suffice.

 

My finished vision with 1 arch only capping the top with exhaust going out the back.

Many details will be coming through the spring/summer months.

Good morning.   This is the best info I've been able to find about refractor  concrete.   This isn't a do it yourself page, its from a oven source.   This is probably what I'll use in the slab pour and I think I'll end up pouring the flue outlet also.  It will look cleaner then trying to lay brick up it.    

 

If you look through the site there is also a recipe for fireclay mortar.   This site has tons of info, you just have to dig around a little.

 

Hope this helps.

Edit:   I have been reading this site for about 2 days now.  All the info you need is in there, you just have to hunt for it.   I did donate to his site because of the wealth of info.   I also wanted his build pictures.   The only problem I'm seeing is the flue opening.   I need pictures to see how it goes together and how big.

Mick, do you by chance know this guy?    

 

I hope everyone has a great week!
