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!

  • Granite for Oven Landing

    Can I use granite for my oven landing? What do others recommend? I have a casa 90.

    Granite is a good choice

    Hi Arthur,
    I think your question got lost in the noise, so I have moved it here, to the Oven Finish section. It's a good question. I think granite is an excellent choice for the oven landing. It looks great, you can color match, it's easy to clean and smooth for moving pizza and pans around. A number of builders have used granite for the landing, and I used it on my indoor oven.

    Highly recommended.

    The landing doesn't get too hot, not much more than 450F where it touches the vent landing, so the granite should hold up well and last.

      landing options

      Extending past my firebrick of the vent I just have red clay brick, but on either side I have a landing of poured concrete that I pigmented to a color very similar to brick. It's less absorbent than brick but not as smooth as granite, and it's very economical. I think any material that can handle the elements would work well. Tile, including inexpensive granite tile, would be fine. I haven't had much trouble with staining of the concrete.
