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!

  • Request for photos of corner pizza ovens

    Hi,

    Has anyone got any photos of corner pizza oven installations? Ideally like the design on p17-18 of the pompeii oven plans pdf. Got the concrete base down at the weekend and now planning the the brickwork

    Thanks,

    George

    Hi- Under my name you will see photos of a recent start of a corner build. I used 1/4 angle iron to support the lintle blocks, but if I were to do it again I might prefer to use another method where you simply put the angle iron across the opening as part of the rebar and hearth pour. I saw it somewhere on the forum, but of course do not remember where. This would eliminate the need for the lintle blocks altogether, but I"m sure there might be other opinions.
    As for the corner design it seems to a good choice to conserve space. Be sure to look up the guy that built the octigon base, very impressive! PS. I looked up his forum name; Gianni Focaccia.

      Thanks Gianna,

      That's the design we're with at the moment. The bit I was wondering about is what are you planning to do for the housing on the top? On the plans in the pdf it is square so if you build to that you have funny shapes at the edge. Or do you plan to continue using the same shape as the bottom?

        Sorry for confusion, Gianni is a another builder that I was referring you to. My forum name is gmchm. I don't know what his plans are. I plan to continue with an igloo shape. The plan I used was the 43.5 inch external dimension one on page 18.

          I am building one, the housing is a little more complicated especially the roof. Igloo might be better for a corner build.

              George,

              My plans are to enclose the oven with metal studs and concrete board, maintaining the octagon shape and extended entryway. I know it's lame, but no matter how many ovens and enclosure styles I look at I still haven't been able to commit to a single finishing material. All I know is it will be made of stone, brick or tile.

                @Gianni - I feel your pain. Decided on traditional London brickwork here but still no idea about the roof! Post pictures when you're done, I'll be keen to see
