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!

  • Bop's build

    Started my build...pics to come soon.

    Poured the insulating hearth today perilite and portland cement 5:1.

    Ended up only being 2 1/2 inches thick. The closest supplies are an hour from home, so a quick trip for more peralite was not possible.

    Options? Can I pour a second layer? Will I be ok with only 2 1/2 inches? Do I just scrap it and continue to call pizza hut? ( just kiiding about the last option)

    Opinions please.

    I had a similar situation to yours, just poor the second layer ontop as soon as its viable. It should have a good contact as the mixture is normally not too smooth..

    Get them pics up!

      I too had the same problem. I started with perlite and the second layer was vermiculite. About 2 1/2'' each layer and it's working great. You are better off getting more insulation as 2 1/2 is not near enough.
