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!

  • Starting oven in Mexico...need supplies

    I am starting construction on an oen in Valle de Bravo, Mexico over the summer. However, I am having a hard time sourcing supplies. If anyone in Mexico has already built the Pompeii oven, I would appreciate pointers toward suppliers.

    Best,

      You look like you're reasonably close to Mexico City, so there shouldn't be any problem getting what you need. Firebricks, and structural masonry stuff come from a brickyard or mason's supply. Vermiculite comes from garden suppliers, you want the stuff that is used as a soil conditioner. Pool suppliers sell it too. Specialty stuff, like insulating boards and blankets come from refractory suppliers, who sell stuff for kilns and furnaces. I did a quick google search, but I don't know enough Spanish to get anywhere. Good luck.

        Best,

        Hi Manitas,
        Try to talk with people that sale ovens in Mexico City (DF) they build it with refractory materials, I’m sure that they buy the materials in the same city, I live in Mexicali BC, I found the firebrick in Proconsa and Home Depot at 23 pesos, you can try it in Home Depot because Proconsa is only in Mexicali.
