What are these? - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

    Any well stocked masonry supply should have something like that. If not, I'm sure they could order it for you.
    Check out my pictures here:

        Out here we call them bull nosed pool capping made in either terracotta or clay.
        They are freely available through paving and pool specialists.

        If you don't succeed the first time, try again and again until you get it right!

          Shay - I've been looking for similar looking tiles. I found the following online, though I'm still looking for something locally:
          Classic Terra Cotta Company Architectural Terra Cotta and Paver Tile

          Scroll down to "Stair Tread and Stair Tread Corner in Villa Style" -- looks like they're meant for walkways, but I assume they would work fine as a counter surface.

            Marion Ceramics also produces a similiar product and have dealers all over the US.

              General Shale has bricks like that too. I live in VA, don't know about other places.
