Insulating Hart - 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!

  • Insulating Hart

    Hello all,
    I just started this last wknd with the foundation and planning to have the stand complete by Friday. Here is my question: I was reading in the material list that a 50' roll of 8" aluminum flashing is needed for the insulating hart but can not find anywhere where to place it or how to use it. Any suggestions\idea? Further more, are all the bricks used for the dome construction cut in half?
    Thank you in advance for your time and respond. Really appreciated.

    You don't need flashing

    Thanks for pointing this out. The flashing was a thermal test we made a few years ago, which proved to be unimportant. The prototype design had to do with the intersection between the heath and the stand; how hot they both become; and whether you need a slip plane at that point. I will take a look at the Pompeii Oven plans, and make sure that we remove any mention of them. This is something you definitely do not have to worry about.

      half bricks

      The bricks for the dome are cut in half, the bricks for the floor are used whole, except for cuts for the bricks to alternate in the floor patern.
