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!

  • Help Identifying Suitable Bricks

    Hi all,

    Supercool forum and community

    I was able to collect some bricks for free and I think they
    will be okay, but I am not sure.
    So, I was hoping if some of you guys could help me out of
    my misery and confirm that they are suitable.

    They are quite old, but still sound and good.
    Apparently they came from chimneys that were part of a
    gun powder mill and production site.

    The bricks are stamped with names and logos.

    I intend to use them for the inside dome. And will use
    normal new fire bricks for the oven floor.

    I've taken some pictures which hopefully will help
    with identifying these bricks. And fingers crossed
    they will be suitable.

    Thanks so much in advance!

      It won't let me post pictures, but I've since had a brick expert check them
      and they're not suitable.
      Thanks a lot anyways!

        I'm not sure what the problem is. It may be the size of your pics etc. But, I "right clicked" on your image icons, it prompted, (open image in new window) the pics show up fine there .

        I can't tell you anything about those brick other than they would make a very beautiful face brick for an oven.

            I just logged in my old Internet Explorer account. I can't see the icons either there.

              But, some great looking brick!

              I am using Google Chrome. I had some problems with I.E. being compatible with the new FB style.

                  Sen,

                  Go to Bookemdanno's thread, he is from the UK and he did a build with solid reds similar to the pictures you posted. He may have some insight. Ditto on what Gulf says about using the brick for facing. They you have a nice look to them.

                    Thanks guys!

                    I'm definitely using them for the outside and base of the oven.
                    I've sourced bricks for the inside dome and floor, so will use them.

                    Cheers!

                      Just read the whole thread, great oven and details!
                      Will be consulting it whilst doing my build!
