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!

  • granite oven?

    I was wondering if a oven could be built with granite cobblestones. They are very old and very dense. I want to put them to good use, but was worried about them exploding if heated. I am a total newbie.
    Thanks

    Re: granite oven?

    Hi...
    I've tried MARBLE as the hearth and it did not crack or explode (300C)
    i was satisfied, i thought also about granite but i didn't
    try it i have the feelings that it will work
    the thermal conductivity of the MARBLE is around 2.5 W/mK
    and for the granite is 1.7 to 4 so they hold a good amount of
    heat.
    good luck
