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!

  • pour hearth and stand cores at same time?

    I just started making the block stand and decided to have a truck pour the hearth slab rather than buy and mix the concrete myself. Can I have them fill every other block hole (with rebar in it) at the same time? The plans say to do the latter first, then pour the slab, but is there a problem with doing it all at once? It would save me some wear and tear on my back.
    Here's mine:

    I poured every core and the hearth at the same time. You might find that the cost to fill every core is the same as skiping every other one by the time you pay for the truck. Check your bracing and check it again to verify that it's ready to go.

    Best to you!

      I can't see any problems at all. In fact you would need to fill your blocks before you covered them with your hearth slab anyway, or once boxed up, the concrete would run down through your blocks as the concrete was laid on to for the slab.

        This is my plan too. I've got about 20' of a retaining wall to fill & cap at the same time for about a cubic yard of concrete total. I'm hoping on "renting" 3-4 college kids w/wheelbarrows for the pour.
