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!

  • Need fast technical help please with crack

    Hey guys, built my oven last fall and did a small curing fire in November. Goin to get on the finishing material this week and after standing idle for six months I just lit a large fire to test it. Got a few hairlines but one 1/8" crack has developed. Not worried cosmetically as it will be covered but need advice if it will cause any structural failure. Safety first. Will try to upload a few pics soon.

    If the brick breaks it's bond on the other side it may slip a bit. I don't think you need to wory about it sliding out because of the taper. Does the crack shrink back to normal after the oven cools? I personally haven't seen that but have read about it on a few posts.

          No problem. Keep firing it.

            I thought I did? If it opens and closes I don't think you have a problem. If it grows an eighth of an inch every time you fire - that would be a problem.

              It didn't seem to close much so I filled it with some heat stop the next day. Haven't fired it since as it has been raining.
