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!

  • Ularu finished

    Well I put the final render onto the oven today. The wife wanted "Tuscany - like a terracotta" no problem I think...

    The cement oxide color said Tuscany, it looked like terracotta. But when mixed with the grey cement it came our much darker.

    Oh well, we have named it Ularu, for those non-Australian's you may need to google Ularu to understand why

    OK - let it dry tomorrow and pizza on Monday, its a public holiday here. Quite appropriately Labor Day, man have I labored!

    Hi, Talisker!

    If your wife ain't happy, you could always try Dulux Tuscan Effects in the terracotta shade... show her Forno del Gallo in my picasaweb album for the effect :-)

    BTW, I hope you named it Uluru rpt Uluru, or those ancient ones will be offended...

    Cheers,

      You mean this:



      A fine name indeed. Is it volcanic? that would be even more appropriate.

        Well, I googled "Ularu" and got many hits, should have checked better. I'll most likely get a bone pointed at me now.

        Comments from friends are I should continue the decoration with concrete kangaroo's and a statue of Neville. Maybe a dot painting on the side?

            I like the colour! Nice and earthy.

            Any why NOT decorate it with kangaroos and a dot painting?! It'd be cool!

                    When colouring the cement with oxide the greyness of the cement always tends to dull the colour. This can be overcome using white cement. You need tons of the oxide coloring to colour the complete mixture and it ends up being quite expensive. I think a better solution is to make a thin top coat using white cement coloured with a proportionately smaller amount of oxide. Or simply use an exterior acrylic paint. Because the outside of the oven gets dirty, if you want it looking new all the time, then it needs a spuce up annually anyway.

                      Pretty sure that would be just giving it another white man's name perpetuating the Terra nullius mythology,but wouldn't in any way be helpful in resolving the lack of acceptance for the colour of the skin of his oven.
