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!

  • Yet another,,,,, Brick Question from a noob

    Going to build a 42" Pompeii this fall. There is a Fire Brick mfgr close to home here in Texas and this is what they carry. They cost .85 pc picked up at the plant. They are the cream colored typical sized brick. Does this look like the correct numbers for this build?

    If it's suitable for a fireplace, it should be fine for a WFO.

      I passed on the Butler brick and used Alsey brick. The Alsey brick is more uniform in size and has less fissures compared to the Bultler. That's a good price though. If I could have gotten them for that price, the choice would have been tougher.

        The Butler brick are crap, but they will work fine for an oven.

          I havent decided what to do yet. I am wanting to build a larger outdoor cooking area. We have a couple BGE's now but want to build a stone or brick outdoor kitchen. I have the room and budget but not a firm plan in place. Should I buy a modular oven or do a complete Pompeii build??? Questions and plans to address in the coming weeks....
