New Artigano 120 in NY!! Looking for advice! - 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!

  • New Artigano 120 in NY!! Looking for advice!

    My wife and I are in the midst of building an outdoor kitchen/ living area! We contacted a mason to install our new (our 1st)oven and I am supervising..( God help me!)
    I think we are in good shape with the base structure and planning on building an igloo! Now it is time for the moment of truth! I spend 2 hours or so with him today laying out the FB board and leveling the sand and placing the floor down. At that point we decided to leave the dome for the morning since it was late. SO here come the questions...
    1- How difficult is it to get the dome in place without chipping the floor? Should I follow the instructions and lift the front stone in order to lower the dome? Won't this screw up the level of the floor again??
    2-Planning on stacking fire bricks on the sides of the opening and then mounting the vent on top..What should the vent be covered with?
    3- We are having a cement counter top made and we are looking at having the landing area and surrounding area made of polished cement. Any thoughts or concerns?
    4- Our handles seem to be cracking/chipping on the outside of the dome...I assume this is OK since it is the only time I will use these to set it in place..?? SHould I be worring that the handles will let go?

    5-I set the floor front about 2 inches in from the edge of the FB board as per one of the pictures we printed..Is that OK?

    Bottom line here is I am hoping to not make someone elses mistake! Any other advice would be most helpful!!! Thanks everyone!
