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!

  • Cement render over chicken mesh

    Can we use a normal cement render over the chicken mesh or is it necessary to use vermiculite mix first? We have approx 100ml of kaowool blanket under the chicken mesh & were going to use a normal cement render over the top but have been reading that most people are using vermiculite or perlite render first and then a normal render to finish off. Thanks

    Hi Ravenja
    Whats Kaowool blanket? a ceramic type product? or domestic ceiling type insulation?
    If its domestic you should have something a bit more heavy duty next to the hotest surface...so the other way around ...Pearlite then wool blanket then the render.
    Check out a thread in the introduction section of the forum...Hi, new Aussie
    I have gone this path ' heavy duty ' then 'domestic ' and it works

    Hope this helps
    Regards Dave

      Kaowool looks fine

      Thermal Ceramics Kaowool

      I played it safe and did both isowool (same as kaowool) and vermiculite.
      I figured it can't hurt but really it'll depend on what you want from your oven.
      If you want to use it today and not tomorrow then the extra insulation isn't required. I'm not saying Kaowool on it's own isn't enough for multiple days use but I'ld play it safe if that's what you want.
      There are a few oven building experts around who I'm sure will pop in with an opinion soon.
