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.

    Just ran across this. May be of interest to those starting a oven who may have Code concerns.

    1/2/2008
    Dear Valued Firebrick Customers:
    Whitacre Greer manufactures quality firebrick that comply with ASTM C-27 (Low
    Duty) and ASTM C-1261. Whitacre Greer also carries Heat Stop products for
    resale. Heat Stop is a line of refractory mortars that complies with ASTM C-199.
    Whitacre Greer firebrick and Heat Stop refractory mortars meet or exceed the
    requirements of local and national building codes and are certified by Whitacre
    Greer as such.
    Whitacre Greer also carries fireclay for resale. Fireclay has many uses for
    residential, commercial, and industrial applications. In some instances fireclay is
    incorporated into homemade/jobsite mortar mixes for firebrick and clay flue
    installations in fireplaces and chimneys; however, with changes to building codes in
    recent years, these mixes no longer meet the codes or the codes’ intent. Fireclay is
    not refractory mortar and jobsite mixes utilizing fireclay are not refractory mortar,
    no matter the percentages of the mix or the items included in the mix. They simply
    do not meet the code.
    It is Whitacre Greer’s intent to inform our customers and to offer products of the
    highest standard for fire safety in accordance with the building codes. Please contact
    Whitacre Greer with any specific questions.
    Sincerely,
    Colby DeHoff
    Whitacre Greer

    Staining firebrick is often a cost-effective way to get the color you want especially if the fireplace is already built.

        Staining or painting firebrick is moronic. Light a fire and the firebrick are black.

          I coat the inside of my dome with a mix that makes it white. When the carbon burns away you are left with a nice bright white dome. Works for me.

            I understand what he was saying or doing but don't understand why it is in reply to my post? I did not ask anything but wanted to help those who might get into trouble with code issues
