My New Build - 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!

  • My New Build - Almost Done

    I've been working on putting my Casa2G100 in for quite some time now...seems like forever ago when I laid the first CMU! Wanted to put an update out there since we're about 95% of the way done. Here's the details...pics following.

    ---Engine Casa2G100
    ---Add-on of 3 additional inches of dome insulation (Ceramic blanket)
    ---Add-on of 2 additional inches of hearth insulation (Ceramic Fiber board)
    ---Covered patio - vented through roof with double wall stainless chimney

    I did everything except the brick work on the outside...wanted to make it look pretty at least. I'm picking out the granite for the hearth extension and counter / prep area next to it, and will post the final pictures once all the stone and brick are up, and ceiling is stained.

            A little bit of both! It's a covered patio attached off the kitchen. But the North and East walls are open to the outside.

            I am complete, my oven is 4 days cured - I got it a bit hot on day two, but no visible cracks, and it was up to 950 last night and no visible cracking. Held at 640 when I woke up this morning. Looks like all the extra fiber insulation bottom and top is working well! I'm having my wife's uncle weld us an insulated door now...should be a beast at retaining heat.

              That looks great. Your "oven-patio" is going to be the place to hang out during winter with the heat that the open oven will put out. Sounds like you insulated it well too.

                Jealous! It's lovely. I'm already considering how I could work an oven into the house.
