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!

  • Duratech anchor plate question

    Are single walled stove pipes compatible with anchor plates designed for Class A pipes?

    I'm using a single walled 6" black stove pipe and need an anchor plate over the vent.

    Thanks!!

    I suppose you could call simpson or one of the simpson retailers and ask. My first bet is that it's incompatable for liability sake.

      Hi Chris. You're probably right about that. I'll send them email and ask.
      I think they're not compatible. I'll think of something else.
      The chimney needs to be about 8 ft high and wanted to save $$ by using single walled pipes, starting from the vent up.

      Thanks,
      George

        I fought with the Dura$ issue as well. I finally decided that after spending all of the time and effort on the oven, how much more was the Dura$ chimney over what a unknown chimney would cost and the Dura$ chimney parts all work together. I have to say that I'm amazed by the efficency of the chimney, I don't have any problem holding my hand on the exterior while a full fire is running. Some of this is due to cool air mixing with the hot gases in the entry and flue, but it's still amazing to have the chimney exterior only warm to the touch.

          Thanks Chris. I guess I'll decide what to do once the dome and vent areas are complete.


          Edit: While looking at my build this morning I realized that I really don't have room for an anchor plate due to my oven design.
          I'll probably end up casting my own vent for the 6" pipe.
