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!

  • building Forno Bravo Calore 2G series fireplace

    Hi, I've been scouring this forum for others that have built this outdoor fireplace.
    and I'm starting to feel like I am the first.
    I received one today and have a few question. The refractured concrete pieces seem to be coated in a slimy substance, and it seemed like something that might cause bonding problems. I'm thinking that it is some kind of form release goop.
    I took a little soapy water and started scrubbing a few pieces. I realize it was still leaving a greasy coating but taking away some of the goopynes. the web site and or installation instructions do not say anything about this. I am all ready to install this. but I'm a bit freaked out about this. I would hate to spend the mega hours to install this to find out later that nothing was bonded by the mortar. If you have any info about this, help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you
