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!

  • chimney options

    So, after seeing a chimney using an old iron chimnea, it got me thinking what else might be used. So, today, while wasting some time, I went into a garden center and saw the ceramic urns they had. Some were embossed and had a nice chimney shape. Would these work?

    Im sure they would crack with the heat the flue would put out.

      I'm also about to fit my stainless steel flue. I dont have an adapter or flue kit. The flue is welded to a ss plate that i was going to dyna bolt down onto the bricks. I am then going to brick around this to match the existing gable end (a walled oven ) and fill the gap between the flue and brick with loose vermiculite. Any foreseeable issues???

        Why would it break... it's the same material as a regular chimney flue, just nicer looking? Sorry, I'm going to need a better explanation than just 'no, it won't'. Surprisingly the cost isn't too bad.. only $35 for the ones pictured.

          Moley, sounds good. Tman1, it may work, it may crack the first time you fire it. Normal refractory flue is not glazed, and when it is, it uses a different type glaze (salt glaze). For 35 bucks it's worth a shot. The real question is, is it big enough?

            They had multiple sizes at the store.. this is just what I took a picture of. They didn't really have too big of a selection since gardening is not the thing to do in Minnesota in December. Some of the other ones looked they'd be a good urn to hold the peels in upright.... plenty heavy enough to withstand being toppled. Some of them would need some modification to open up for more air flow. If you could find one big enough for a steel flue to fit inside, then you might really have something!

              Bolting to the bricks is problematic. I would just set it on a thin bed of mortar. If you are going to brick around and then fill with vermiculite it should be plenty sturdy enough. If you are concerned with stability you could even fill the gap with 12:1 vermicrete.
