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!

  • Miscellaneous Artigiano Construction Questions

    Hello, purchased an Artigiano100 last week, and have gone through these forums for some time. I'm hoping someone can clarifiy a few issues I have:

    1. My oven will be assembled as part of an outdoor kitchen. The rest of the kitchen will be built of wall stone from a paving company. My mason is planning on using the wall stone(cut in half to 4" in depth) to provide the wall surrounding my oven to build a stone house. He assures me he can make it waterproof. I've spent hours going through forum pix, yet cannot find a single oven that seems to be assembled from wall stone. All stone houses seem to be cultured stone(presumably on backer board or cinder block base). Do you think this is feasible, or am I missing something?
    2. As such, my vent will rest on bricks, and not attached to metal studs. Can any stone be utilized for the bricks under the vent? Is there a specific requirement given the heat they will be exposed to?
    Thanks in advance, John

    There have been many builds using stone. Just insulate from the fire brick - same applies to your vent question. If you want to see some really great stone work look for janprimus... The dude is an artist.
