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!

  • where to find high heat mortar

    Hi
    I live in Eastern Ontario and i can't find high heat mortar in my area, the only thing I can find is already premixed.

    Does anybody know a distributor in Montreal or Ottawa area.

    Thanks

    Frank,

    Take a look for sarah_h's build threads. She's in the Ottawa area and I believe her solution was a bit of cross border shopping in NY state.

    I live in Toronto and decided to go the premix route. I know it's not recommended but our insulation and firebrick supplier (Alphatherm in Markham) has a refractory mortar that other clients have apparently had good results with for home-built ovens. (Not an objective source of products reviews, I know)

    Figured this would be easier than sourcing the ingredients for and mixing the homebrew especially because our build site is north of Toronto where specialised building supplies like fireclay can be hard to find. We're approaching the support slab step so it will be another few weeks until I have results to report.

    -David.

        Frank:

        What brand of premix mortar are you using? We went with the Vesuvius Super #3000.
