Whoo-hoo almost done! - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Whoo-hoo almost done!

    Thanks to you guys, I have finally finished (with the exception of painting, etc.) with my fireplace/oven combo project. I am so grateful for all who gave me advice, encouragement, posted pics, etc. Yesterday, I even added a little flower bed around the back--watch out!!

    I will try to post a thread including step-by-step pics later, but I am so proud I had to show you these.

          That looks great. Point me in the direction of your rumford construction page.

              Thanks a million, Brauma and all!

              Woodchuckdad--I built a modified Rumford style fireplace from scratch. It is much more shallow and tall than most and radiates more heat, allegedly (haven't actually fired it up yet). You can order the throat and smoke chamber from Buckley Rumford which would make it much easier, but didn't fit my budget. I don't know how well it will work outside since it is a larger opening for wind, but I am planning on using tin or whatever while burning to block the wind. Also, one thing I would plan on doing if you haven't started it building it on the pad that you have laid (instead of laying block to build it up as I have). After laying the 2 block base, I learned that it is better to be closer to the ground to decrease the amount of wind entering the fireplace. Since I began not thinking about the oven, the fireplace was designed to be a cooking fireplace that includes a rotisserie (it has a decorative scroll on it now).

              I wasn't great at posting pics as I was going along, so I started a new thread yesterday and will try to post more today at http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f21/...ace-13442.html. Will be happy to help however I can b/c it was more difficult without the step-by-step instructions that we get here.
