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!

  • New BBQ stand and counter top

    Well 8 months after finishing the oven, I've finally made a start on the countertop and BBQ !

    The plan was to go gas BBQ, with it resting in the countertop in a well. However, after multiple changes in design (as expected) we've gone down the charcoal route and got a kettle that will stand on the counter.

    This means we don't have it permanently in the way if we just want the counter for pizza etc.

    The base is split into a store cupboard that will have a door, and another open wood store - can't have too much wood..!! The base is built of lightweight block and is rendered, and will be painted to match the rest of the base.

    The top is concrete pavers, and they are HEAVY !! 75kg each, and no room to move them ! At least I know we won't be breaking one by accident !

    After being told by the local DIY store that slate can't be used outside I am going for a porcelain tile from my local tile supplier.

    I will post more as we progress..!! Photo isn't great, but it was getting dark !

    Cheers

    Peter

    Re: New BBQ stand and counter top

    I started outdoor my kitchen a few months after I finished my WFO. Hopefully, I'll be finished this weekend. As far as slate not being used outside...I placed slate tiles on my hearth surface and they work great. I don't know why you couldn't use them outside. The slate tile I got had a tendency to flake in large chunks so I sealed them with three coats of clear concrete sealer and it not only looks good, but have held up great as well. I am planning on using the same slate for my outdoor kitchen counter as well. I'll post pics when I'm finished.
