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!

  • Cal-Sil board available in Northern California

    Hey guys,
    Been lurking for awhile absorbing all sorts of great information and inspiration. I've been putting together my building materials for the past 6 months or so and have arrived at the floor insulation area. I'll be using calcium silicate board instead of the vermicrete for various reasons. The problem is, most places are only selling it by the case, and well, I don't need a whole case. I need half a case.

    I'm getting a case of 12 1.5" x 12" x 36" boards. I only need 6 of them. That makes 6 available that I'm willing to hold onto and sell at a good price. $120 bucks takes all 6. That's 20 bucks a board. Forno Bravo sells their insualtion board (24"x36"x2") for 70 bucks per.I'm also willing to listen to offers.

    I don't want to deal with shipping with this stuff, so it'd have to be local pickup, or delivery under the right circumstances. I'm in Chico, California, about 90 miles north of Sacramento, 3 hours from most of the bay area. Though I come through the Bay every so often, so delivery may work in that instance.

    I'll put a build thread up soon when I get started. Getting excited to almost be cooking with wood fire!

    THANKS all. Please send a PM or reply here if you want any more information.

    Cheers

      Sorry that my first post read like SPAM. I assure you I am a regular joe just like you all, trying to build an oven. I figured since I'll have some leftover insulation board, why not offer it to the community that could use it?

      besides, what kind of spam wont ship and would possibly deliver?

        GS Warriors - are you still sitting on the floor insulation? Did you start your oven? How is it going?

          Zekebv and others - I have not started my oven build yet. In fact, I (sadly) have decided to change my plans and forego the build at this time. My wife and I are expecting our first baby in July and the time and money could really be better spent with the little guy. Plus, I don't anticipate many big pizza parties in the coming years with an infant and a toddler! Eventually, I'd like an oven, but I'm afraid it is just not in the cards for me at the moment.

          That being said, I am sitting on 1 unopened box of Cal-Sil board (1.5 inch thick, 12x36, 12 pieces) and 2 boxes of ceramic blanket (12.5 feet long x 2 in x 2 in)

          I got the blanket from here: McGills Warehouse Online Department Store,

          and the Cal-Sil from: Pacific Insulation - Industrial Products - Pipe Insulation, Air Handling/HVAC, Industrial Insulation, Commercial Insulation, Insulation Fabrication

          Since I no longer need it, I'm hoping I can sell it to some other fella thats looking to build an oven. I'd like to get what I paid for it:
          Blanket: $50
          Cal-Sil board: $130

          I will post pictures later if needed.

          Send me a PM or post here.

          THanks

            Hey guys,
            I took some pictures of the insulation. Had to open the box of blanket to take a picture, since there are no markings on the outside of the box. I didn't pull the blanket and have sealed the box back up. The Cal-Sil remains sealed, but its box explains the contents.

            Read my post above for explanation of sale. I'm just figuring someone in or near my neck of the woods is collecting materials for an oven build, since I wont be using it any longer.

            I'd be glad to answer any questions yall may have.

            Cheers

              I am starting a build and I live in Santa Rosa. I don't get to Chico much unfortunately!

              I know this is last minute, but if your username means that you are a Golden State Warriors fan, and if you will be at the game tonight - so will I so we could meet there!

              Otherwise might be able to make a plan to meet in the Bay Area next time you drive though?

              I am new to this board so I don't yet know how to send you a private email address!
