Finally, my very own dome - 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!

  • Finally, my very own dome

    hi everyone, this is a great site and has inspired me to finally attempt my very own WFO (i had been talking about it for years!). ihave completed my dome and insulated with both ceramic blanket and vermiculite/cement and am just about to render and would like to attach riverstones or possibly granite/crushed marble(not quite sure yet) to the external render which will be exposed to the elements. My question is what do i add to render mix for waterproofing and should i embed the stones into render or attach to render with some type of adhesive.

    Maybe my advice is too late but I hear that the re is a glue that works in high heat for glueing to cement. Local pizza oven suppliers use it. Sorry I don't know it's name.

      If the oven is built correctly you wont need high heat glue, the outside shouldnt get above 20c ambient.
