Stainless Steel Front Entry - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

  • Stainless Steel Front Entry

    Need some help. I have covered my oven in metal lather in preparation for stucco. I have carried the insulation to cover the chimney area but I am at a los whether to secure with metal lathe or concrete board/hardibacker. The metal lathe is exactly easy to work worth to create smooth crisp lines around my chimney area. Where should I proceed from here? I have ttached some pictures so everyone can visualize what I'm talking about.

    I can't see any insulation in your pics. You can secure the blanket's form with some mesh. Most folk then give it a layer of vermicrete to even out all the lumps and bumps, then do a layer of stucco. Or are you intending to build a dog kennel over the thing? Either way you may as well cover the entry in blanket too.

      Thanks for the reply. I wanted to show pictures of the metal (dog house) that was supplied by FB for the build before I attached the metal lathe. I went ahead & attached the lathe over the insulation and around the chimney area.
