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!

  • Naturally heat resistant stone?

    New guy here , I'm wanting to build an oven this spring , was just wondering if anyone here could tell me if there are any naturally occurring heat resistant stone that can be used in place of firebrick.

    Was mainly interested in limestone as I have access to a quarry here where I can get beautiful big slabs of limestone in any thickness desired , at a very fair price.

    I was thinking that as lime is used in most concrete mixes , it could maybe be used in it's raw form , but I haven't found any information on it yet.

    Could it be used , or would it break down under the heat of the oven?

    I will use firebrick if I have to , but it is very expensive where I live , also the limestone is very nice looking.

    Thanks for any input.
