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!

  • Fireplace and pizza oven shared chimney indoors

    Hey Guys,

    We are in the idea stage of designing a warming house for the local skating pond in Southern Wisconsin, and we want to have an indoor fireplace and pizza oven, but would like to use the same chimney.

    This is a concept drawing... does anything seem out of place?...any concerns?

    Thanks,

    Rooster

    I'm not a pro, but I think you'll want to run two separate flues inside a larger masonry chimney (rather than dumping both into a common flue). Even if it's not required by code, it'll be easier to control the drafts individually.

      Your biggest challenge is aesthetics if you are going to tie in a metal flue into a masonry chimney. As far as functionality in concerned, it will work fine. Draw characteristics on outdoor fireplaces differ than indoor ones...I don't see a problem tieing in your wfo flue, especially that high into the fp flue.

        Here's a great solution in a 400 y.o. villa, now a restaurant, in Panzano, Italy.Great food by the way.
        One of the big advantages of this system is that you don't have an entry to have to work past. No extra flue either.

          That is similar to the way early American Beehive ovens are built, but most beehives had their own flue.
