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!

  • need structional advise for vermiculite concretee

    I`m building a outdoor fire place, pizza oven, and grill smoker combo . All separate units . My problem is on the fireplace top I will have a large chimney over the whole back ,but I wanted to have a flat surface instead of a arch in front . the size is 4ft. by 2 .and a half ft. wide . This would be the open space with block and brick on the sides . I would like to pour a concrete slab in this space . . As regular concrete would not hold up to the heat I was thinking of using a vermiculite concrete base maybe over concrete board [ would`nt care if the board deteriorated after from heat ] pour this about 3 inches thick . Then for structure pour a top coat of high strength concrete over this with re-bar reinforcing . I will also have steel angle the long way under the form .
    Any thoughts as to weather the vermiculite concrete would hold up in this application . I could go with steel sheet 1/4 inch but the heat would still transfer thru and crack regular concrete I think .. Any suggestions would be welcome . I do not have access to vermiculite board or calcium silicate board .. That might have solved the problem ..
