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!

    I'm not quite there yet, but I'm doing stucco above and brick below so I considered using the lip as a design feature as it's just a few bricks below the bottom of my brick wall top. Alternatively, I've considered building it up with a notched trowel and mortar to bring it flush.

      getting lippy with me?

      I am going to make a very shallow 3/4" copper box to slip right over the end of mine that will cover the lip of the hearth and the insulation beneath it. I will hammer it first because I like the dimpled look. I will form the rest of it on a sheet metal brake here at work.

        By lip, does that mean that the upper enclosure is a skosh narrower than that bottom?

        If that is the case, you can use a mortar or scratch coat stucco to build up the upper enclosure to there it is smooth with the block stand. Once you are level and smooth, you can go ahead with your finish material or stucco. Don't use your finish stucco to build up any gaps; it won't dry right.
