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!

  • Greetings from Kingsport, TN

    Hello All.

    I am completing a major renovation to my house on Boone lake. The final project will be the brick oven. My stone mason will be assisting me, but has no experience building a brick oven. I am planning on a 42" tuscan domed oven, framed and finished with the same cultured stone we used on the house. We will use FB insulating board for hearth and FB blanket for dome. I am open to all suggestions. Looking forward to getting started.

    Welcome! We are here to help. Is your mason going to use brick or build the kit? If time is a factor - buy the FB kit.

        Watch your mason like a hawk and make sure you have 2" of board underneath your floor and 3-4" (or more) of blanket on top. If your mason is willing to read (and follow) the plans carefully you won't have any problems.

        Good luck and post lots of pictures for us!
