Refractory Mortar - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

      Heat Stop

      That refractory mortar is called Heat Stop, and should work fine.

      Or, you can make the fireclay mortar described in the plans, which is fireclay (ground up firebricks), sand and portland cement. It is not a true refractory mortar, because is it based on portland cement, but it will take the heat your oven will put out and you can easily find the components.

      We are going to be getting more Refrax in California, which is Italy's biggest refractory mortar brand, and really nice. I will make a posting when it is back in stock. It's $25 for 22lb (just add water). It's great stuff and made specifically for brick ovens and fireplaces. Our oven producer makes it.

          Thanks for the tips! I set the bricks for the stand today, took some pix. It was slow. I spent most of my time figuring out what to do; very little actually doing. Tomorrow should go faster, as most of the problem solving is done.
