Can Someone PLEASE help me identify and find info on this build!! - 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!

  • Can Someone PLEASE help me identify and find info on this build!!

    I'm clearly new but have exhausted the search option before posting. So please don't flame if my questions stupid.

    My research has told me that this is a clay mixtured dome over the bed of flat fire bricks. refractory mixture?...not that i completely know what that means.

    My goal is to make almost a clay/cement like dome that can handle the heat for the back yard. Even if i run into cracks eventually, (hopefully not for a long time) my thought is that i would build a new one.

    Is Kiko's book about earth ovens something useful for this oven? Any information or direction on this build would be such a favor to me. I'm hoping my dad and I can build this together at his house. Thank you guys.

    I would think Kiko's book would be an excellent start for this type of oven. I have built a Scott style oven and have alot of base material left over as well as firebricks and am thinking of doing a cobb style oven.
    Let us know how you are doing. Post pictures and updates.
