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 Stand Question tumbled block

    I am considering using a prefabricated block to match a wall in my current landscaping. Does anyone have experience with a product like this?

    I have been searching the forums and don't really find any builds using a block like this.

    This is more expensive but creates a nice look with other things that I will be doing later with my BBQ etc.

    I used modular block like that for a friends retaining wall once. It should work fine for a oven stand, but keep in mind most of those wall units are designed to be built on a batter, so plan your footprint accordingly. They might have vertical block too, But I don't use modular wall block, so I'm not sure.

      That is a vertical 2 sided wall block, it should work fine.

          Perfect, without showing the actual plan, it will be a similar Square/Rectangle like every other stand with two Pillars in the entry of the space for Looks and for work/counter space. They will be capped and will be 2 - 2x3 foot pillar caps for putting food down etc.

          Sounds like it will work just fine.

            You do not have to do so, but I would use a product like NP1 between them. Just run a single bead down the center.

              So what you are suggesting is, take precautions to tie it all together right? I would do that....either rebar and concrete or a combination of glue. What is NP1?

              Thanks for the suggestion...

                  Re: Pompeii Stand Question tumbled block

                  Ok so the stand is done. I was able to use the block that i wanted. This took two days to build. It was two full days of work with a bit of Butt kicking. The second day was over the next weekend. Today....a lot saw work. I had to cut the block to fit in a 4 inch Angle Iron.

                  This is what I wanted and it was worth the hard labor haha.
