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.

  • mixing trowel

    I ground off flat the area shown on the tip of the trowel which now helps for mixing my mortar. You can scrape the bottom of the bucket with the point gone. No use saving my sales receipt on this trowel now.....wayne

    and this micro fibre rag is the cats meow for cleaning mortar off bricks....the gunk doesn't spread all over the rag to easily so you have lots of clean spots on rag to turn to and then it cleans super easy in cold water as the gunk seems to hang on all the hairy fibers

    I almost bought one of those towels Wayne.

    I've been using a old worn out towel....kind of hit-or-miss.

    Thanks for the info.

          Where did you get the microfiber rag? It sounds like it's a lot better than my big HD sponge.

          We are also starting to grout our first bathroom remodel, and it sounds like it would work there also for the final tile clean up.

              Great suggestion.
              For those getting ready to buy a trowel this (picture) is called a margin trowel and works excellent for this type of work. These are stainless steel but Marshalltown makes very good steel ones. When buying one make sure you can see the weld ghost on the underside this is a sign of a good weld, and makes a difference in price. The others will break or bend at the attachment point after a few uses.
