First Build - Question - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

  • First Build - Question

    Hi All

    Not sure if this thread is in the right location? But here goes...

    I am building a Barrel / vault style DIY pizza oven.

    The oven is 90cm deep, 80cm wide and 60cm high .... internal diameters

    The image attached shows a cross section of my design which i hope makes sense. The blue shows fire bricks and the orange is klinker (clay) bricks.

    My question is where should i locate the chimney and how big should it be? I have marked the locations as A or B on the image.

    In the round ovens, the chimney is not at the top of the arch but in many of the barrel or vault ovens, the chimney seems to be at the top..... i dont understand this difference??
