Building Project: - 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!

    Hey, I'm making a pizza oven for a workshop project and I was wondering what is a good, cheap firebrick to use as my slate peice to keep the heat in and for the walls if possible?

    Download the pompeii oven plans on the FB site and read the brick primer on page 69. Fire bricks usually cost between 1-2 dollars a piece. You can go the craigslist way and it could be free.

      Thank you heaps the ones in a lot of the shops down here are a fair bit more than that but I've found a way to get them shipped here if needed.

        What brand brick did you find I can only find HC Muddox brick which has 27% valumina.

          A brick manufacturer in NSW said that he had two types of firebricks and I checked they were cheaper than buying them in Tassie, I'll post a link to their website when I find it again I have it round here somewhere...
