insulation for Casa2G 100 - 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!

  • insulation for Casa2G 100

    I have constructed a stone house for my Casa2G 100. I'm wanting to fill the rest of the enclosure with insulation but nobody in this area has vermiculite. Of course, I have the oven wrapped in the FB blanket but just wanted some more insulation. I saw some blow-in insulation at Home Depot. Is that an option? If not, any other ideas? Thanks!

    Blow-in insulation is mostly cellulose. It's paper. You don't want it there. Even if it's loose fiberglass, domestic insulations have organic binders: I'd be suspicious of it unless I read the material data sheet.

      Hey Arkansas,

      You don't really have to fill in the gaps with loose vermiculite -- as the oven come with a full 3 x 1" covering of FB Blanket on the top. That said, if you have gaps, it would be nice to add it.

      Don't use anything other than vermiculite or perlite. You should definitely avoid paper and fiberglass insulation products.
