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.

  • Using Plaster.....

    Spanish builders use plaster during construction for all types tasks. It comes in two versions, Yeso rapido and Yeso controllado. (Quick set and slow set)

    It is not for exterior use but if covered with cement, it's fine outside. (I believe it to be powdered gypsum or "plaster of paris") I think it is a good option to cover an interior oven with stucco since it's cheap, easy to use and also has insulating characterists.

    When I was covering my oven, a builder told me to use yeso as opposed to cement because cement cracks with heat but yeso tightens up and gets harder with the heat. On my recent firebrick hearth, the old timer at the brickyard told me to use yeso, some sand and a little cement. I tried this mixture and we'll see how it holds up.

    Quick set is used extensively for holding temporary forms, bars, fixtures, etc. until the final cement is used around it. Once the final structure is in place, the plaster is knocked out and the form removed.

    Just another building material option to consider.
