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!

  • Finishing Oven Enclosure....questions

    Hi All,

    My oven is nearly done and we've framed the outside with steel studs and Hardibacker board. It is the type used for bathrooms and wet areas. Could you recommend the steps for placing stucco on the backer board? Does it need primer, metal lath or chicken wire?

    The enclosure has a peaked roof and looks somewhat like a childs play house. It will have metal roofing. Is ventilation of the roof area necessary or can I close up the seams all around when I apply stucco? Just wondering if moisture could get trapped inside the enclosure and cause a problem. If a vent or two is necessary could you recommend the size and correct placement?

    Cheers,
    Bob

      "Is ventilation of the roof area necessary or can I close up the seams all around when I apply stucco? "

      Always plan on moisture getting into the enclosure. A picture/drawing would be useful, but assuming there will be some roof overhang, I suggest continuous perforated sofitt venting.

        Hi,
        You will want to sketch your enclosure and facade, actually, building a small model with the dimensions in mind will help you to plan the finished look that's perfect for your outdoor dining area. These how to build a brick oven plans are based on 8 foot by 8 foot slab being prepared and a standard brick oven. If you expect to modify them to include a slightly different shape be sure to include facade measurements of at least two inches for the stucco finish

          any time that you have a vent in the eave, you need one in the peak. air needs to move from the eave to the peak. for a really good source of information on (attic) ventilation, go to www.airvent.co
