HeatStop 50 in NYC or CT - 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!

  • HeatStop 50 in NYC or CT

    I wanted to order the RefMix but shipping turned out to be a deal killer. Now I am looking for places that sell the Heat Stop 50 in the NYC area, or anywhere between NYC and Waterbury CT (go there regularly on weekends).

    Any help would be appreciated. Found a few places that have the premix pails for HeatStop but none that have the dry mix.

    Found this message that had some sources for Heat Stop in the area:


    Also - for firebricks within NYC, this places sells them. $250 minimum purchase, not the cheapest but when you factor in getting them into Brooklyn (where I live) it was a good price and did not require taking time off to travel outside of NY to pick them up. They also have the 'floor tile' sized fire bricks which I did not realize when I placed an order but maybe someone else can take advantage of.

        Thanks dmun. I had known about them but they don't have Saturday hours. A friend is doing me a HUGE favor and running over there to pickup the mortar.

        Are you using insulating boards under your oven? Were you able to find them on the east coast?

            I bought mine from Kraemer Gunnite in the Jersey suburbs of Philly. They had 2 1/2 inch insblock19. I could have gotten it locally from H-W, but Kraemer was MUCH cheaper. They would have shipped, but the stuff is heavy, and it seemed like worth half a tank of gas to go get it.

            I think Progressive has Saturday hours in the summer. Give them a call. Again, their prices are worth the trip.

              Hi guys, thanks for the leads. Went from having a hard time finding the stuff to finding that it will be easy to get. Awesome.

              Dmun, you rock! I did not notice they had summer hours. It is now posted on their site (7-12). I am still very thankful to have a good friend who was going to go get the mortar me (plus he has been helping on the project too, can't say enough about this guy -> Thanks David!).

              And thanks for the leads on the boards Dmun. I am heading to VA in a couple of weeks and should be able to swing a stop for the boards at Kraemer Gunnite. What is H-W btw?

                Harbison-Walker is the nations's biggest manufacturer of refractory products. They make insblock19. They have distributors in most major cities. (the one near here is in Rahway)
