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.

  • A. P. Green bulk fiber?

    I have access to some A. P. Green bulk loose fiber, 50lbs worth. I believe it is ceramic based. Can anyone here comment on how far 50lbs would go and how it might be applied? I assume that since it is loose fill it cannot be applied to the hearth, only over the dome. Would I be correct in assuming that it must not be too heavily compressed? What could I do with it? Drape it somewhat randomly over the dome and then hold it in place with chickenwire? Would 50lbs cover a dome to any advantageous thickness?

    I'm pretty clueless here. I tried to look up A. P. Green online and didn't find too much, and really didn't find any information on their bulk loose fiber.

    Any help appreciated.

    [Followup: this stuff is apparently InsWool HP Bulk]

    Re: A. P. Green bulk fiber?

    One would suspect that the insulative value of the fibers would be relative to the density they were compressed to (within reason). So if that assumption is correct, if one figured a 8 lb per cubic ft density (similar to the denser kaowool), the fifty pounds should give you a bit over six cubic feet of insulation. Depending upon the size of your dome and your enclosure that may or may not be enough material.

    Hope this helps,
