Do I have to use fire brick to close off the front of the Mattone Barile series ovens - or can I use regular bricks?

Since the front of the oven doesn’t get as hot at the other parts of the oven (ceiling, walls & back), you can use standard clay bricks to close off the front of the oven.

You will still want to use High-Temperature mortar when placing the bricks into position… but yes, standard bricks (not concrete bricks) are a-okay to use to close off the front of the oven.
