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!

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.

  • Slip Joint or not?

    Hi Out there,

    I will be building an outer arch out of Bullnose bricks 9". I'm leaving the half bricks out to create a toothing which will be filled with 3" of blanket 1" of vermiculite/fondu then 3/4" of render 41/2" of the Facade bricks will overlap 41/2" of the firebrick inner arch should this overlap be a slip joint would appreciate any thoughts.Bricks

    The outer arch looks from the pic like it will be in contact with the heat and flames?
    If so it will crack with the heating and cooling cycle.

      Hi Bricky in Oz,
      I'm thinking the same. Perhaps a 5mm gap between the to arches as both are selfsuporting.Or because its the furtherist from the fire a bed of fire clay or ramming puttey between the two could work.bricks

              Hi Bricky in Oz,
              Just thinking that if i cut a channel into the internal and external bricksto take the rope it would act as an anchor and a great seal still allowing say a3mm gap to difuse heat transfer to the facade. Bricks

                I just use Portland. It is in a slightly cooler area and seems to work ok. Fondue is a bit of an overkill IMO when used outside the main oven. It is also way more expensive.
