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!

  • Cedar Heights fireclay

    Anyone have experience with Cedar Heights brand of fireclay? I came across an online store that is located in town that list that fireclay for sale. Hopefully, it will work for home brew as I need a source of fireclay for the dome on my oven project.

    I just got a bag on Saturday in Charleston. Looks to be good stuff from what I googled, it's used locally here. Wear a mask when handling it because its contains silicon.

        So does pretty much everything you touch in the world. Wear a mask because it is ground to a fine particle size and that can be dangerous in the long term, no matter if it is silicon, alumina, dirt, plastic, or black pepper.

          Yeah, but not everything that has silicon is ground into tiny particles that go airborne like fire clay or dust from saw cutting.

          I am a hypocrite though. I usually hold my breath or use prevailing wind for respiratory protection.... Dumb, but I am trying to get better about that. I also use the safety squint when I forget my safety glasses....future Darwin Award winner.

            I have been breathing portland, brick dust, and cigarette smoke for 50 years, to say nothing of washing my hands in gasoline, running with scissors and riding motorcycles so it isn't like I am a role model.

                  It is the formation of crystalline silica that is the really dangerous one. It is formed when the clay is "fired". Breathing brick dust is many times more dangerous than clay dust which has not been "fired".

                    What is the matter with us humans . We wait until we are "old" to decide that we want to "live forever" .

                          Good to know. Thanks. I'll pick up a bag Friday. I'm off from work today watching the kids due to Easter break. I wanted to work on the oven today, but it is storming outside.
