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!

  • How many rows ahould I have for a 42" oven?

    I wanted to check if anyone knew the number of rows of bricks it would take for a 42" oven with the soldier row being a full brick with the top cut at a slight angle?

    I had 13 including the plug. I didn't do a soldier so you are probably looking at 12.

      Here's what I had:
      8 on TOP of a soldier course (cut about an inch at a 10 deg angle) shown in this pic and then there where 3 rows that where almost vertical then a "larger" keystone. That equals 11 on a tall soldier.

      If you went with a tighter final keystone (ie: a smaller one) then it would have added another row.



      BTW: Don't get lazy like me and line up any joints. Try to avoid it; but it happens to the best of us.

          Les I've seen your thread and you have a beautiful dome. I like the big plug that looks almost like a full brick.

            I had eleven rows on top of the soldier and then a ten faceted keystone.
