Brand New- trying to find step-by-step instructions (Brandon, FL area) - 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!

  • Brand New- trying to find step-by-step instructions (Brandon, FL area)

    Hi! My husband and I are wanting to build a wood burning fireplace on our patio near the pool area. We contacted a couple of contractors, and they would use the IsoKern with a 28" opening for $5700.. That sounded a bit outrageous to us, and it doesn't seem like it should be TOO hard to build ourselves. We have scoured the net and can not seem to find any step-by-step instructions on how to build it. Does anyone know a site or book for us? We just want maybe 4' long by 3' deep... Can we build the frame out with cinder blocks and line it with firebricks? Home Depot and Lowes both told me that their patio paver bricks are firebricks, but from reading this forum- they are not. Would the paver bricks hold up in the heat for just an occasional fire? We are not really looking for the heat- just the ambiance. And we live in Florida, so it will not be used THAT much... Any thoughts? Or any ideas where we can purchase these materials??? Thanks!!!
