High Quality Firebrick

October 15, 2012
By Georgen2
from West Hurley, NY
"I have a 30 year old Pillsbury "Cardinal" airtight woodstove with the original firebrick that was badly cracked and crumbling. After cleaning out the old pieces, the new firebrick from Northern fit perfectly... it was the exact dimensions of the old brick. By the way, the shipment of firebrick arrived in great shape, with NO cracks or damage. Great Job, and I highly recommend this product!"

must have for a barrel stove

,
August 20, 2012
By woodburner47
from Chattanooga, TN
"One downside to a barrel stove is that, while barrels are cheap, they need to be replaced periodically. Why? Open flame oxidizes steel. It does not oxidize cast iron. That's why cast iron is the preferred material in wood stoves. Factory steel wood stoves are lined with firebrick to keep flame away from the steel. Their walls are made from thicker steel than you will find in even a heavy steel drum. Barrel stoves should be lined on the bottom and ends with fire brick as well. That is not to say that you shouldn't use a grate on top of the firebrick. A grate will hold the fire above the ash and improve combustion. That is a different issue. Firebrick is there to protect the steel. Your barrel will last longer and you will expose the floor and walls around the stove to less heat. This product is a must in any barrel stove."

"The firebrick in my aged wood stove had broken up and fallen out of the firebox. I replace the brick with the Vogelzang Firebrick and now the stove firebox is good as new. Good product."
