I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena

Hello,

For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.

If the link doesn't work, simply go to You Tube and type Forno Bravo Channel. The video title is How to Set your Forno Bravo Oven Dome Pieces.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

  • Stone Mason Tools - CanuckJim

    So a web is only as good as you make it. This is essentially a cross post of data now that we have a tools section. This picture is also posted in the photo gallery along with the description...

    Credit goes to CanuckJim



    Left to right:
    a large Marshalltown brick/block trowel
    a 1/8 inch pointing trowel
    a 1/2 inch pointing trowel
    a 2 inch square end plastering trowel
    a small brick/tile trowel useful for restricted spaces.

    Immediately above is
    a decorative 3/8 inch pointer called a beading tool or grapevine here
    (gives a rounded convex shape to facade brick joints; there are other sizes).

    At the very top,
    a rectangular Marshalltown smoothing trowel for slabs, foundations, plaster, parging (very useful).

    Not shown, an all metal, double ended block joint pointer;
    it results in a concave finished joint.

    Except for the beading tool, all should be available at Home Depot/Lowes/OSH....
    Masonry suppliers will handle the more expensive Rose label and things
    like the grapevine.

    The dark staining is from refractory mortar: LaFarge Fondue.

    The narrow pointers and the beading tool are all shown working faces up;
    others down. I modified the length of the pointers to the size I prefer,
    then rounded the noses to prevent tool marks in the finished joints.

    For brick joints, simply choose the pointer width that fits most snugly.
    These are also useful to dry measure and maintain consistent joint size
    without using a tape.

    Here are some tools from the Lonja (15th century silk exchange) in Valencia.

    (no I can't list the names.... but they're pretty cool and the building was awesome)
