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!

    Applied finish coat of stucco this weekend and had two pizza parties! Oven is functioning well but I am still learning. I have uploaded photos to: http://picasaweb.google.com/STidik[/URL]

      Steve, is this it? I don't think I've ever seen a black stucco WFO. It looks FANTASTIC! I love the black with the exposed Stainless Steel vent. This is one sharp looking oven.

      I looked thru your Picasa web album (yup, I'm fixated on your proper wine pours for some reason) and I notice no smoke smudges outside of your opening on the outer arch. You've done a good job with the vent opening and that transition. Your 1st pizza's look nice too. Congratulations on nice build.

      Cheers, Dino

        Steve,

        Your oven looks magnificent! Hope mine comes out nearly as nice. You wouldn't happen to be a Raider fan would you?

            Re: Progress in San Luis Obispo (36" Pompeii)

            My oven is almost done! Finished the slate, and had the granite installed last weekend. I found an old european oil jar for $94 to hold the pizza tools. On the outside of my entry, I have exposed yellow fire brick. I plan to add a coat of refractory mortar to change its color to gray. Does anyone think that there is a chance of the brick, wicking water into the insulation during a rain storm? If the water is a potential problem, then my plan is to make flashing out of very thin SS to cover the entry brick.
            Thank for everyones help

              Your oven looks fantastic. Your attention to detail really shows. That's a classy oven! Your night time photos of your backyard turned out great.
