Build my Owen pizza hacker at Weber Ground - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

  • Build my Owen pizza hacker at Weber Ground

    Hello here !

    I have been Reading here for a While and are very impressed by the knowledge and skills you all possessiv, so i hope for some help with my Owen project.

    I am the owner of several Weber grills, but dont own at Real Brick oven.

    I would really like to build one, but my Wife is between a big Brick oven and mé ;( so in first place i would like to make a High temperature Brick replica,based ón perlite concrete.

    I have been looking ón buying the kettle pizza kit for my weber but Think that paying 150 euros for some steel is to much, and there isent much building my own oven in that.

    So therefore i have purchased 200 liters of perlite, and 25 kilogram of cement fondue from lafarge.
    With this i want to make mé a new top and a raiser for my Weber.
    And i am also thinking of Casting a new Button, so that ist a hole new grill oven.

    My main issue now is, what is the perfect formula for this cast concrete ?
    And how do i get some good form to make the concrete top and raisers ?

    Dó i use plywood ? Some plast products ? About the top , i Think that i Will use the original Weber top.

    The reason why i want to use perlite is because off the Weight and insulation...and combined with this aluminatebased cement it should be possible to make strong concrete that withstands the heat.

    I also have a 7 kw gasburner for the project, that im thinking of using Like in the little Black egg pizza ovens.

    Sorry for the long argumentation, i hope that some of you Will help mé progress in this project even if you Think that i just should build a Real pizza oven istead off using energy ón some replica Weber gas oven.

    Manu kind regards thomas

    Are you still working on this project? Take a look at my posts about my small oven.
    I started out with a plan like yours.

      Maybe try a flower pot over the weber or cut a slot in it first if you want????
