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!

  • ceramic tile finish

    Hello to all ,
    I have some exterior ceramic tile that was left over from a job site and,was wondering if anyone has ever finished the outside of their pizza oven/fireplace with tile.I'm in the process of building a pizza oven on top of an existing fireplace and would like to enclose the hole thing in with tile.My question is can you put the ceramic tile directly on the block(walls) or should I enclose the
    hole thing in with 1/2 concrete board.what type of thin set and grout should I use if I take this route?The tile resembles a brick like look 1/2x2x9 pretty heavy duty. Thanks to all
    Bruno

    I think a few have used tile. Refer to Robert Musa (one of the first builders here) and Frances - both were very creative. No reason you couldn't set the bigger pieces.

    If at first you don't succeed... Skydiving isn't for you.
