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!

    I have a solid piece of 1 1/4 inch granite left over from my kitchen and i would like to know if i can use it in front of the oven opening. It would actually be in front of the ash drop. How hot does that area get?

    Not too hot

    The front landing does not get too hot, and you can definitely use granite there. I have granite in front of one oven and I like it. It's easy to clean and nice and smooth. No seams to worry about.

      Not granite, precisely...
      Not problems with temperature or at all.

        Nice work Luis

        Luis, what is the material? By the way, I love the look of your oven. I like the stacked brick thing. Very cool! I really like the statuary as well, it is very chic.

          Reptile

          The shell is sorta' reptilian, perhaps an armadillo. Very cool! Is the statuary from the islands? Really reminds me of my childhood in Brasil.

            Marble and such

            In front of the ash drop I used an inch and half thick piece of square cut sedimentary limestone, called Owen Sound Ledgerock here. It's the kind of stuff used for patios, and I've laid a lot them. This was a leftover from a large job. Works great, doesn't get that hot, more like warm. Even so, I stuck it down with refractory mortar.
