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!

  • How to build chimney and outer arch

    Hi, I'm building from a kit ( http://www.pizzaovens4u.com/download...Stepbystep.pdf ) but I'm considering building my own chimney and arch from red brick rather than firebrick or the vermiculite structure supplied with the kit. Has anyone got plans for the outer arch and chimney structure ? And can anyone comment on my idea please ?
    Thank
    Richard

            RichC,
            Welcome to the forum……….Hope ya don’t mind me stepping in on the thread.........Here's a question I feel is fitting for this thread and also a good starting topic…………. How much chimney will a hearth slab support that is 3 1/2" thick with 1/2" rebar on 8" square centers?
            Respectfully,

              Thanks guys, I've only recently discovered this forum and its a treasure trove of information and experience. I always thought this site was just about selling a particular brand!!! Glad I found it when I did as I'm just about ready for the supporting slab
              Thanks KB! That probably would have been one of my next questions

                  Just open another window and find the thread that you want to link to. In this case the first page of your build. Left click on the browser link at the top of the page and copy (control c on the keyboard).

                  Go back to the "reply to thread" window and type in a few identifying words like Dave's Build. Highlight those words and then click on the icon at the top of the page that looks like the earth with a paperclip. It will bring up a box that will let you paste the link(control v on the keyboard) and attach the link to the highlighted words . A word of warning though . Always go to the review post and check out the link before submitting. If you made a mistake and the last thing you copied was,............ say like calendergirls.com it could be embarassing

                    A hell of a lot more than you can build your chimney high.
                    Ive got 100mm of concrete and the chimney stack is over 2M above the top of the oven.

                    The main problem most ppl forget about is sideways buttressing to stop the entry arch from pushing down and out.

                      Hi Brickie, would there be such a thing as a drawing that details the block laying for a chimney anywhere in the forum?

                        Hi Rich, not that I know of.
                        By block work I aasume you referring to the block base? Concrete blocks cant be used for a chimney.

                          Sorry Al, I mean the brickwork ! I'm away from home for a week but I have 'the breadbuilders ' book at home. Ill check when I get back but I think it might detail a brick chimney build.
                          My dilemma is this, the kit I'm using comes with a 3 piece vermicrete chimney arch. The top piece is prebored and takes a chimney flue. It's then finished with brick slips in the outer edge. I think it's a bit ugly as its more square than arched, so I'm thinking of building a red brick chimney stack, although it will probably end up being plastered. As the kit chimney is made if vermicrete I'm wondering will I be affecting my ovens performance in terms of heat up or heat retention negatively by building my own red brick chimney stack. Not willing to use firebrick as they're €2.70 each here.
                          Thx
                          Richard

                            Thanks Brickie. I may reconsider my original brick chimney design. Once I calculated the weight of and oven and chimney of well over 3000 lbs, I got scraaarrrddd and changed my plans and decided to wrap my clay flue with steel studs, Hardee concrete board and stucco.

                              1 and a half tons spread mostly over the entire footprint of the oven is nothing if you have good foundings and good support for the oven slab.
