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!

  • Pompeii oven design

    If we build the walls on the 2inch fb board will the oven not be susceptible to moving as opposed to laying out the first course of brick walls on the concrete base and cutting the fb board to support the oven floor only.Also if we plan to block over the oven as opposed to stucco,can we lay cement and block on top of the fb blanket material without crushing it.Also do we need to insulate the hearth around the oven opening in front of the door

    Re: Pompeii oven design

    you want the walls on the FB board to insulate the dome from heat loss to the floor. The board will handle the weight. You want insulation everywhere to hold the heat. the blanket would need a stucco layer to support the weight of the block to keep the compression to a minimum. you will want a thermal break between the opening of oven and the hearth.
    Do you have the FB plans downloaded? It will answer many questions as well as searching the forum. check out the links that LBorou has made to many great tips and builds out on the foum: http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/14563-lburou/
