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!

  • by chance can anyone help?

    Hey all, closing in on completion of me 42x16 corner oven. this thing rocks already and isnt quite done yet. I will not post pictures till it is 100% completed. Here is the point of my story. All I need to finish is a small piece of some sort of insulating board for my door that is apx 18x9 and hopefully 1 " or more thick. I am having trouble finding it locally and a small piece at that. my effforts to find one on the net are also not working as the shipping is usually more than the board in the first place. I am in NH and was hoping that maybe someone had a remenant that they would sell /ship to me or could point me to a vendor(net or local) Thanks for listening, I am open to alll suggestions. -marc

    I thought about the same thing, but had no board left over. And found the same thing you have to buy a whole piece and pay for shipping again.

    So, my plan is to make one. I have some left over Durock, door size. Cut that to shape of door. Install 2 short bolt and washers as anchors for the next layer. Will form up and pour a 2 inch layer of perlite cement onto durock. Will attach wood or metal facing to durock and not quite sure about perlite side, a heat reflective paint or foil. I know this door may be fragile, but hoping it will last at least a couple of years.

    Of course if you are fortunate enough to get a piece of scrap, then forget what I just said and tell me if they have some more.
