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!

  • Fire Brick Prices in Australia


    I'm new to the forum and Forno Bravo. I'm very impressed with the detail and information on the site and in the free set of plans. This has changed my plan to build an oven with clay bricks (pressed reds) to using fire bricks. I'm in Tasmania, and the first price I've found is $4.95 per brick which will expensive for the whole oven.

    Does anyone have any tips on better prices, freighting interstate etc?

    Hi GFY

    I'm not sure about freight but Darley Refactories in Bacchus Marsh Victoria sell second grade bricks for $2.50 + GST. I purchased mine from there and they are perfect for building a WFO. I was initially concerned about them being second grade but the salesman said everybody uses seconds for WFO's. If you decide to go new they are $3.75 + GST each.

      Yeah thats about it.....seconds are usually half or a third the price of new.. If the seconds look structurally sound they are probably ok. I believe "low" or "medium" duty are more appropriate whereas "high duty" are for higher temp applications.

      Build #2 (Current)

        Thanks for the information. Darley Refractories have turned out to be a good source of material as well as bricks. Their price including freight beat the local option.

        But today as I went to place an order, I found out their entire stock sold in the last day or so. Pizza ovens are very popular this Christmas. While that's a good thing overall, it'll probably put my project back a bit.
