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!

    Anybody see any issues with this vent design?

    Re: Vent

    The flue arch usually has a funnel type design into the chimney, with the wide opening into your oven, smoke may escape at the sides as it will not be captured by the chimney.

    Also you have a fairly wide and deep flue tunnel, what is holding up the horizontal bricks?

    I also see 2.5 bricks before getting to the inside of the oven, not including the decorative arch, that seems to be quite a distance. It will be a long reach to the back of the oven. And with that prep table in the front it will be extremely long.

    There will be quite a bit of the oven on the near right and left of the inside of the oven that you will never be able to see due to the long flue arch, it will require special tools to clean in those invisible areas.

    One other thing I just noticed you do not seem to be using firebrick for the arch. Concrete pavers will not hold up to the heat that the flue gets.

      Thank you, I'm going to take a second look using fire brick. The horizontal bricks are supported by angle iron and the flange from the stove pipe, maybe shorten up the entry a bit.

          I see a HUGE problem...all of the smoke and heat will go out that big hole in the top of your dome! (just kidding).

              Al, what about the angle iron I used across the top of the oven opening?
