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!

  • Casa2G 100 build

    We built a Casa2G oven in Snohomish County Washington. We had some small issues along the way but we worked through them. We're about to start curing the oven tomorrow. It's been a blast!

        we built a concrete base on the trailer.. And it was the wrong size so we had to modify that.. Measure twice theory!

          Oven showed up boxed tight no damage or issues. So we got to work on the base of the oven. Set some rebar and poured some cement. It went as well as expected but we did measure wrong on the first pour and had to increase the size of the base.

                  Applied the stucco base and let it dry over night.. Then we added the stucco finish.. Coming along nicely at this point!!!

                    Next we worked on selecting some tile for the base and the mantel. We also had to build a mantel or deck for the oven. Next up mortar and grout!

                            So we cut down the arch and decided to chisel out the stucco work down to the actual oven dome. Just a little bit of mortar here and there and we put the arch back into place permanently. Next we put stucco back into the gaps around the arch and voila!! looks nice to me.
