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!

  • chimney pipe/stove pipe questions

    What size of pipe is recommended for the 42" oven?
    What about triple wall chimney pipe - will that work? It iis stainless steel.
    And how long should it be?
    It's "Metalbestos...Type SS-II"
    and it's 30" long. Could I use this?

    Cecelia,

    Triple wall stainless steel will work fine -- it's a tad thick for what you get, but it will work.

    What is the inside dimension? You want 8".

      I can get it for 35 bucks! I am waiting to find out if the inner dimension is 8" - keeping my fingers crossed!

        What about chimney caps? I am using a clay (terra cotta) chimney - actually, an 8" thimble. I am assuming I'll need some sort of cap but what purpose does a cap serve and what do I need - as in MUST have? Do I need downdraft protection? Or just weather cover?

          Carbon from your chimney will wash down the flue and end up on your landing if you don't have a chimney cap. It may help with downdrafts, but that's the main problem if you aren't providing a critter barier for an indoor oven.

            And a spark grate of course.

              So nothing fancy is required? Taken to a simple extreme, I could just place a non-combustible cover on top (above) the thimble, slap on a screen grate thing and, voila?

              Sorry for the simple questions. I just need to understand why I do things, what I need to accomplish, before I move ahead. Once I understand I can make decisions based on whim and caprice if I'm so moved. So thanks. This oven building can get obsessive and this forum is just a brilliant collection of enablers.

                Well, i didn't get the chimney pipe - oh well. I'll keep looking - but it's kinda expensive at FornoBravo - Is it that expensive everywhere?
                Where do you get the terra cotta chimney?
                Could we build a chimney out of brick?

                Am I correct in saying there doesn't have to be an opening with a vent at all - of course the smoke would end up coming right out in your face, I suppose - not much different than my junk electric oven at the moment!
