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!

  • chimney question

    Does anyone have a close up top view of the chimney opening being built into the dome oven? Size for opening on a 41 inch dome oven, or at least real good picture of the installation process.
    Thanks
    Bill

    (M) I'm not sure if the following link will serve your purpose but try:

      Hi.

      I have a few pics of my progress at that point, and could post more if helpful. The opening in my arch is (from memory) 3" x 14". It was actually a little wider than the flue pipe I got and I had to fill the edges a bit. I wanted a smaller opening than the flue itself, after reading about Rumford fireplaces and smoke accelerating through a smaller opening into a larger one.

      I don't think I get smoke coming out the front of the oven, and I don't even have a draft door. Interesting because before I put the flue tiles on, smoke just poured out the front. I need to use acid to clean those bricks so that I can truly see if I have any smoke escaping. I'm very happy with it.

      I found the flue tiles were much cheaper than chimney pipe as well. Spent something like $70 on the whole chimney.
