can't find ceramic ins blanket in area - 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!

    Where to find vermiculite in michigan

    I live in SE Michigan and trying to find someone who sells vermiculite. Whenever I call around, no one has heard of it nor knows what it is. Any members who live in SE Michigan and who have bought the insulation before?

      Re: can't find ceramic ins blanket in area

      Are you checking with the right sources? A YellowPages.com search of "refractory suppliers" list many suppliers in Canton, E. Canton, Alliance, Sebring, and a Harbison-Walker location in Minerva - none of which are too far away (former 35 yr. Akronite here)
      Hey, I had to go 50 miles away to get fair priced firebricks now that I am in FL.

      Harbison Walker is probably the worlds largest refractory manufacturer - I almost guaranty they will have ceramic fiber blanket and rigid board insulation.

          There are mail order places. I think there's a supplier who frequents ebay.
