Granite as Firebrick
From the WFO board
Posted by Bill Cobb
I have got a couple of slabs of granite that I am interested in using in a pizza oven/masonry stove combo.
Would the expansion / contraction cycles destroy it? Since the granite grew up in a volcano, would it withstand the heat?
If usable, would it make a good oven floor?
