Heat radiation from external wall of oven?? - 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!

  • Heat radiation from external wall of oven??

    Hi Folks

    Firstly great web site and forum!

    I am in the initial stages of planning a dome oven.

    I have sourced good refractory bricks and mortar.

    At the moment I am setting out possible locations for the oven. I want to place the oven as close to my boundary as possible, but local council restricts the distance to 450mm from the boundary. The neighbouring property is an additional 900mm from the boundary which equates to 1350mm or 1.35 metres from the back of the oven to the neighbours wall (rendered brick).

    I am wondering is this sufficient? I donít want to burn next door down! I will of course be utilising appropriate materials, insulating bricks below the oven, refractory bricks for the interior, insulation blankets and am currently looking at then covering the oven in sandstone.

    That would be my second question, does the internal oven have the ability to support and additional layer of bricks or stone work?

    Thanks for your time!
