Brick and mortar smoker and grill '16 - Page 2

post #21 of 24
Thread Starter 

I bought a pallet of the firebrick from a local building supply store which brought the price down some.  On the smoker side, I installed them on their sides, which gave me around 50% more surface area.  I figured the firebrick didn't need to be 3" thick on the smoker side.  Here is the site I used for my doors when the couple local welders wanted to charge me $2000 to make doors for me...

Hello Scott, If you need them assembled this will work, thanks for the share.

However I built my own doors of 1/4" plate with 3/16"x3"  frames from angle iron. I have about $2,200 total invested in my smoke house. I have approx. $450.00 in steel materials. My firebrick was $2.50 each here in Nebraska what is yours each... just curious?

I think we've highjacked this thread... sorry guys...


If you can find a  fab shop in your area they should have a stock of what you need.  No idea on cost.


Firebrick,   Is there a local masonry supply close to you. ( A place of business that sells brick, block, sand etc ? Box stores are a rip off on masonry supplies.


You might check the prices on masonry at your local builders supply.    I got mortar there cheaper then anywhere.


Good luck, start a new thread on your build and keep us posted!!
