My 36" build in Lehi Utah - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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 36" build in Lehi Utah

    It was a lot of work but it was worth it....I first built a steel frame and then painted it and screwed 5/8" plywood to the frame. Next I wrapped the plywood in two layers of roofing paper. Then metal lathe was installed around the base making sure to caulk all of the staples. Next the cultured stone was installed to match the stone on our house. Two concrete slabs were poured in my garage and then installed on the base. The slabs were then painted with a flexible water proofing material to make sure the tile does not buckle or crack. Porcelain tile was then installed, again making sure to use mortar mixed with a flexible additive so that the tile would be able handle the winter weather here in Utah. The insulation, oven floor and oven kit were placed on the slabs and centered. I installed 3 layers of insulation over the oven and then used 20 gauge wire to hold the metal lathe to the oven. I brown coated (stucco) the oven and let it cure for a week. During the time the brown coat stucco was curing I started curing the oven. After about 5 days of curing I installed a color coat stucco on the oven to match the trim on our house. The oven is so insulated that it can be 1200 degrees at the top of the oven and you cannot feel any heat while touching the outside of the oven. Forno Bravo?......BRAVO!!!!
