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!

  • Mold Release

    Hello-I have found lots of good information on this forum. I am currently in the middle of my oven/outdoor kitchen project. I am getting ready to cast my oven from homebrew refractory. I have gotten good info from David S on this subject. What I need to know is-what can I use for a release agent between my mold and the refractory cement? Will Vaseline(petroleum jelly) work? Or will this effect my cooking from the residue left behind, or effect the refractory cement? Your advice is valued. Thank you.

      I use 50/50 motor oil and kerosene, I find it works pretty well. You don't want any more oil than is necessary and by thinning it down this way it can be painted on sparingly.

            I guess any oil would work. Whatever you use will burn away in the oven.

              Check with your local masonry supplier. You can buy a standard form release agent.

                Just cover the mold in Cling Wrap.
