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!

        Looking good! Curious how you are planning to finish/flash that chimney. I am building a similar design and am a bit perplexed about that one. Looks like you've got the roofing on with no flashing yet?

                    There is not much you can do about it, really. Seal both the arch and the stucco with a penetrating sealer to make cleaning easier.

                      Dave,

                      As was mentioned, not much you can do about it. I suggest you finish the front with the brick you have used. It will still get exposed to soot but will not show as bad. I am contemplating raising my vent, not for draw, but on fire up the smoke gets pushed back down from my vent cover and lands on the stucco finish of the dome. You will not have that issue. Your overhang may get exposed but you can cover that with many things that can be easily washed.

                        You could also slice the same brick thin and face the oven with that, it will show less soot than stucco, but sealing in either case is your best bet.

                          Or just live with the soot. I don't find the soot buildup unattractive. I think it adds to the "old world" charm of the oven.

                            Are you using a blast/draft door? They help the oven heat up faster, and channel the smoke up the vent. I can't decide between SS and Neoceram... in the meantime, I'm using a piece of cal-sil wrapped in heavy aluminum foil (my temporary bake door) shimmed up and tilted back in the entry.

                              Yea im might just go with stone like i have on the bottom half and then stucco the sides and back, then seal the front of it like tscarborough said ...ok thanks for the replies - much appreciated..
