Brick Ovens Construction Methods Italian Style

Brick-Ovens-Construction-Methods-Italian-Style-Long-Island-NY

Brick Ovens Construction Methods. Welcome To Gappsi, My Name is Giuseppe Abbrancati and I will give you a demonstration  of our brick ovens construction and models. We carry 5 different styles  and  we have them displayed at the Gappsi showroom for you to view them in person. Gappsi brick ovens are by far the best on the market,

As far as construction, material used to build them, designs, finishes and functionality. They all come with a standard finish. Which includes stucco, pebble rocks, random cut stones and tiles? We also offer custom finishes to your specifications such as  personalized engraving  of your favorite pictures hand painted by our artists on the exterior of the

As part of our Brick Ovens Construction Methods We can also cast your desired words on the oven metal door. If you are in the market for a brick oven, and do enough researches you will learn about the Biscotto di Sorrento, many companies that use something similar as the biscotto di Sorrento will make a big deal about it, and also will charge you more money as an upgrade of the ovens floor. Many of you would ask? What is the biscotto di Sorrento? The biscotto di Sorrento is a terracotta brick manufactured from clay that is only found in Italy in the region of Campania in the Sorrento area on the Amalfi coast. This clay is rich in natural minerals that will absorb, retain and release   the heat uniformly; making your cooking process the most natural cooking experience you can get using a brick oven. The difference between a Gappsi biscotto di Sorrento and the competition is that many companies that claim to use the  only use to make the base on the oven,

Gappsi builds the entire oven, floor, walls and dome with the same material. The Gappsi method of building brick ovens, is a tradition that dates back over 300 years From one of the first producers of the biscotto di Sorrento still in business in Italy today after many generations.

The process of building Gappsi brick ovens starts with the collection of the clay and stored to dry. When it’s time to manufacture the bricks it gets mixed, the clay is then made in to a consistent paste and then molded in to specific sizes  and let to dry. The drying process continues for several weeks, smaller bricks are stacked and also let to dry naturally. The dried clay bricks are then stacked into a chamber and then a wood burning fire is used in the furnace below to cook the clay bricks into their final stage of manufacturing. These are the complete terracotta biscotto di Sorrento for the ovens floor and bricks that will be used to build the Gappsi brick ovens.

This is how we build Gappsi ovens starting with a metal frame base that works as the foundation for the oven; we apply insulation under the concrete base to keep the very bottom of the oven insulated, then we install wire mesh before the concrete is poured. As we pour the cement into the form we preset the hole for a future gas burner to be installed. Then we start with the assembling of the floor, we set up the biscotto di Sorrento bricks and start building the walls around , and after we complete the first 2 rows we ten remove the floor and fill the void with volcanic sand, mixed with rock salt, this combination acts as a subfloor that provides insulation and heat retention under the ovens terracotta floor.

Then the clay brick biscotto di Sorrento is installed above the volcanic sand. In this particular oven we drilled the hole completely through the ovens floor because this oven will have a gas burner and will work with both gas and wood fire. Here we are starting to build the walls, starting with erecting the door frame and cutting the bricks to match the door angles. The first row of biscotto di Sorrento bricks is installed vertically as a soldier course around the perimeter of the oven the bricks are installed in a wage position that minimizes the cement exposure on the inside of the oven in between brick joints. Bricks are plumbed and installed to perfection by artisans installers as the base wall is complete a top row of bricks is installed as a bond beam and the shape of the dome is created with a temporary dome made out of volcanic sand.

The dome is then built over using the same technique of waged bricks to create the cupola inside the oven. This process is used till the completion of the brick dome then the exterior of the brick dome is covered with a wire mesh  reinforced layer of a mix of cement , sand and expanded clay pebbles further insulating the ovens exterior crust. This is the ovens structure completed with the best clay bricks.

Every Gappsi oven is built the same way up to this point then it depends on the finish and style the oven will take the shape of the desired model. The interior of every Gappsi oven is a site of craftsmanship, Beauty, and History of a tradition that has been unchanged for more than 300 years and the exterior of every Gappsi oven comes standard with a large useful mentality, made out of volcanic black marble, which is beautiful and also heat resistant. Using the traditional oven shell,

Here we are building the vesuvio style oven a combination of brick accent, to face the front of the oven, the dome for the smokestack is being built over a metal frame and insulated all Gappsi ovens domes are insulated with a high quality fiberglass blanket, a second frame is built on the outside of the oven. all rebar reinforced and wrapped with galvanized wireleath. A volcano shape is accomplished and a cavity is also created between the oven and the outside shell.

True craftsmanship and precise execution goes into every Gappsi brick oven construction. A layer of cement is then applied over the wireleath; the air chamber created serves two purposes this provides more insulation for the oven and makes the exterior surface of the oven safe and cool to the touch, the final installation of the top cupola the smoke stack And the vesuvio model is Complete.

This is our Napolitano model veneered standard with river rocks. These are our craftsmen’s posing with the Sorrento model oven, Standard veneered with random sized natural stones and brick accents, And to complete our line of custom brick ovens is  the Amalfi Style finished with custom hand painted tiles from our artists of Your favorite memories with friends  and family and can also get your favorite name engraved into the oven metal door.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about our brick ovens and construction process. Please visit the Gappsi showroom to view our brick ovens and all our unique products. If you are in the market for a brick pizza oven please do all your research and come to us last. We are very confident that we will  prove to you and that you will agree  that Gappsi ovens are the best quality brick ovens on the market.
