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!

  • Need a small piece of ceramic insulator

    I have finished my oven and have found that I need to insulate my door a bit more to retain more heat for bread baking. I used all my ceramic blanket and board materials to cover the dome. I need a 20" x 20" piece of either rigid foam or blanket material to insulate the door. Does anyone have a left over piece I could buy? I live in Florida so preferable someone in the US to keep shippin costs down.

    I hope to be insulating my door this coming week, it is being fabbed at the metal shop now, so I may have some extra cal sil board. How thick do you need and do you mind if it is not one solid piece? I might be able to get one 20"x20" piece but I am not sure.

    I might even have some left over blanket now that I think of it. I bought an extra roll to stuff my chimney. Do you prefer one over the other? Board or blanket?

    I will look in my shed tomrrow.

      I prefer board but I can make the blanket work. It is OK if it isn't in one piece.

      Thanks,
      Jeff

        Check with your local foundry supplier and see if they may have some board that has been damaged in the warehouse or in shipping.

        I got a few insulated fire bricks for my thermal break -- when I was picking up my materials I noticed some insulated brick with chips out of the edges and I asked if I could get them at a discount, They just handed them to me and said they were glad to get them out of the way.

          Thanks Chip. I'll see if there is a foundry supply place near me. I was getting my brick from a brick yard but they don't carry other high temp materials.

            Jeff,

            I am still waiting for my door to be made. The shop told me it should be done on weds. I think I will have some board left over. How thick do you need it to be?

            Just let me know and we can work on getting this to you. Or maybe you can find it like Chip mentioned.

              I have 2 doors. One is about 12" x 12" and the other is 20" x 24". If you have that much left I would love to have it.

              I have been unable to find a foundry supply in my area. I also tried to find Kiln suppliers and heating suppliers but have been unable to find anything that would work.

                Jeff,

                I can definetly do the 12X12. How many inches thick are you looking for? The door I am making will be 3 or 4 inches deep. I had it made so I could adjust the thickness if need be.

                I have odd board sizes. The place I bought them from was out of the standard 2 inch when I was there.

                  I would like to make the door 3 to 4 inches thick but am flexible. I can use whatever you provide.
