stucco vs percrete - 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!

  • stucco vs percrete

    Luckily I live an hour drive away from FB Marina showroom store in which i had purchased 2 boxes of FB blanket.
    So I used 2 boxes of the FB blanket to insulate my 36" brick dome.
    Its about 4 inches of insulation , now securely wrapped with chicken mesh in an igloo shape.

    This guy at the FB store told me that I can go ahead and use stucco right away to go over FB blanket?

    Or do i mixed perlite and portland cement to go over chicken mesh then apply stucco.

    Any response will be appreciated, thanks

    I put chicken wire over my blanket, then used vermicrete over that, and put stucco over the vermicrete. I'm dedicated to overkill on the insulation, what can I say!

    You'll have to have some kind of mesh to stucco over if you do it right on the blanket.

      I put 3 layers of the FB blanket, chicken wire and put the stucco right over the blanket. With the oven going at pizza temp, my dome is 5 degrees above ambient. If you have 4 inches of the FB you should be fine to stucco right on top.
