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!

  • Huck Buld

    Well today, I finally got started on my WFO. I cut the soldiers and made a layout of my floor plan. The concrete truck finally showed up today and I got my slab poured. I have had my concrete on order for two weeks finally I called another company today and they said they can bring it this afternoon. Here are a few photos of my progress let me know what you think and if there is anything I should change let me know. I ordered the Harbor freight 10” saw $199.00 I had a 20% discount coupon. I sure do like it cuts like a dream.

      Another human bites the dust and is destined to become a fire addict!

      Looks like you are off to a good start. I like the use of wine! And the pics demonstrate the use of the tool well.

      Haven't been to Ruidoso in a long time. We need someone to develop the Hatch Chile Pizza and you are good candidate!

      Good Luck!

            I got quite a bit done on my pizza oven stand. I mixed and poured 20 bags of Concrete and failed all of the concrete blocks. And frame the bottom tray and installed rebar. Tomorrow I hope to be able to frame it out with 2X8 and be ready to pour the final slab Monday.

              Well I got my hearth frame out and the concrete poured. Thatís about as far as I can go for a few days. I will have to make a trip to Albuquerque, New Mexico to pick up more fire brick and heat stop50, and order Ceramic Fiber Board.

                Looking good. Those forms remind me of my pour.... I must have reused those form boards 5 or 6 times before they got to ugly or too small to use.

                    Really? I have my oven finished and am missing out on all the fun you guys are having. I am with Lars, "this may not be my last oven"

                      I know this won't be my last oven. I learned so much it would be a shame to waste it by not doing it again!

                        Seems I got shipwrights disease while building my oven. After the concrete was done for the oven - i needed 2 more slabs for the outdoor kitchen, footings for the steps from the patio, concrete benches, herb stand .... Kinda wish my wife would have called for an intervention. That harbor frieght cement mixer got more than it bargained for and those 2x6's oven forms stuck with me the entire time.

                        For some reason - I see another oven in my future - we'll figure out some reason to move again. These ovens are too much fun not to have one! And now the thing as somehow integrated itself into our normal lives....

                          High friends
                          I need to ask a couple of questions. I am using the ceramic fiberboard to put my floor, and soldier course on. I just found out that the Ceramic fiberboard is on its way and should be here Friday. My question is when you cut out the ceramic fiberboard do you cut it the same size as your soldier course or do you cut it a little larger like maybe 1Ēor so. My soldier course will be on top of the ceramic fiberboard, not on floor. I have everything it takes to complete my WFO I should be able to start on it Saturday. Iíll be sending photos of my progress.

                            It depends on what kind of enclosure you are planning. If you are doing an enclosure, there is no need to cut it at all. If you are doing a igloo, i'd cut it the size of your finished insulation, i.e: two inches if you're using blanket, four inches if you're using vermiculite concrete.
