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!

  • Curing oven

    Should I cure my 42 inch Pompeii before I install insulation or after I have read of people doing it both ways?

    Re: Curing oven

    Like you said people go either way. But what type of insulation you installing? Igloo or enclosure? Cladding? Lots of variables. I cured without insulation but your case could be different.

      Re: Curing oven

      I am using ceramic fibre insulation and plan an igloo style finish. The oven is under a roof so I'm not worried about rain.

          Stucco. Thank you for responding. I have been reading your build and many others for years and now finally had time to build my own

            Re: Curing oven

            My plans are just like yours. I plan on curing and having it full blast before i put the insulation, because i can see how the oven performs, if it cracks, or i should say how much it cracks etc.

              Re: Curing oven

              One thing that was suggested when I cured was to loosely cover the dome with the CF while curing to help equalize the the temperature from the inside to the outside. I did not out of forgetfulness but not a bad idea and nothing to loose.

                Thanks again for the quick response. On another note I have several lengths of black stove pipe from an old wood stove could I use this for my chimney?

                  I'll defer that question to others who used single wall pipe. I used Selkirt double wall SS pipe.

                    Re: Curing oven

                    I'm either going to use a single walled pipe or no pipe, just vent it out with a red brick chimney. I am not paying $$$$ for a double walled pipe. Thats just me.

                      Re: Curing oven

                      That's exactly my thoughts. I'm sure my wood burning stove gets hot than my oven will. I can't see spending more on the chimney than the rest of the oven

                        I read an English build and his using an enameled single steel pipe. Sounds more durable than plain steel but is it available , I'm going to be keeping my eye open for that it sounds usable?

                            Isnt enamel just the finish? If so you can even apply engine enamel from a spray can.

                              I think it's dipped and then oven baked. I don't know about engine paint would it be hard to spray the inside of a 6 in steel tube. I now have a mental picture of someone's arm up the elbow in a steel tube with a spray can. Recon one of those gloves that they use to inseminate cows. I'm not letting this thought go any further.....
