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!

    If your external layer of refractory mortar is thick enough to take it -- definitely yes. The Artigiano ovens have wire mesh in the mortar. I know for all the wrong reasons. :-)

        My poor dropped oven. I've seen my Artigiano inside and out -- which you are not supposed to be able to do. I will post photos shortly.

          My question is, why? I've seen it wrapped around the insulating blanket that goes on after the mortar - that seems to make more sense to me (though I'm no expert by any means ).

            The wire will add structural integrity. I'm wondering if the heat will efect the wire and if the extra stregth in the shell over the dome will cause somthing weird to happen with the dome expanding.

                Let me know how this works out Brunelle.

                My wife and I are contemplating building an oven on wheels for taking to local events. And I am sure this would help keep the oven together. ... We have horrible city streets.
