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!

    Has anybody constructed a functioning wood burning chimney with a pizza oven on top?

    Do you mean a fireplace which converts into a pizza oven? I'm building one now.

        I've seen one on a rumford fireplace website, but they were side by side (below). Do the layout as you'll have to work out spacings and chimney paths. Front chimney exit for oven and rear for fireplace.

          It's best if the fireplace has a separate chimney from the oven, and a necessity if you're following building code. You may also consider having the fireplace facing a different direction from the pizza oven if you're planning to use them both at once: You don't want to roast your feet while you're cooking. One way is to have the oven unit at an angle, with the fireplace facing the seating area, and the oven opening off 90 degrees to face the cooking area.

          Here's the link to the rumford.com page mentioned above:

          and more ovens from the same site:

          And of course don't neglect the FB picture galleries:

            It can be done, but one of the tricky parts is working out where to run the fireplace chimney. Fireplaces are shallow and pizza ovens are deep, so that if you run the fireplace chimney behind the pizza oven, you end up with a deep fireplace and a really small oven.

            I think Dmun's idea is interested.

            Good luck with your project!
