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!

  • How Many Firebricks?

    I successfully poured my hearth in mid August and then took some time off for last minute recreation before my children went back to school. I am going to pick up my firebricks this weekend, but am confused regarding the quantity needed. the materials list states that 100 are needed for the cooking surface and an additional 180 are needed for the dome. Does the 180 refer to the number of half bricks needed for the dome, or will I need 360 halves (my oven is going to have a 36 inch inside diameter)?

    I did cad drawings for the 36 inch oven, and came up with 171 firebricks, not counting the entry arch. The pics of the cad drawings are here:

    Each layer is shown separately, you can count them your self.

      I made a 38" oven (20" dome height) and used approx 210 bricks. I just checked my order, and I ordered 280, and I still have 70 left over...
