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.

  • plastering the supporting wall

    Hi, need some advice on this please. As I understand its a 2 coat process ( or us it 3 coats?). First layer needs to be scratched so second/final coat adheres to it. Can I leave a long gap in time between coats? I assume thats ok?
    First scratch coat should be thicker if the two.
    What do I scratch with?
    Am I making any obvious mistakes here?
    Any advice welcome

    Thanks

    Here is a article that helped me gain some understanding of the stucco process.

      Scratch, brown, finish. Use more line with each layer.

        We just used Quikrete Quikwall Surface Bonding Cement and acrylic fortifier, then added stucco color and covered with one coat. Just another option.

          Richard, we just took a narrow board (about your forearm's length) and put screws through it every inch or so. The screws went through about 1/2 - 1 cm, as long as they are even it doesn't matter how far they go through. Then you just drag the board over the first stucco coat and the screw tips scratch the surface nicely. The outer, 2nd, colored layer will dry fairly quickly if you don't mist/lightly wet the first layer - so you need to have everything ready, make more stucco than you need, work quickly, and relax...nobody will notice if you make a mistake or that the stucco's not "perfect" when they have a freshly baked pizza in front of them!
