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.

  • Homebrew or Heatstop on arch/vent/flue/chimney?

    I'm going to try homebrew for the dome, but I think I've read some recommendations for using something a little thought on the arch, vent, and flue.

    I'm making a run to the masonry store today (to get my firebricks!!!) and they're kind of a drive, and only open during business hours (so I have to leave work), and they're the only place I can get Heatstop (the dry 50lb)...so I would love to decide if I need any and get it now, so I don't have to go back. Buying it to be conservative isn't any better b/c then if I don't use it, I still have to return it.

    So, anyway, what do people think? Can you homebrew the arch, vent, and any work around the flue, or should that be done with Heatstop?

    Thanks.

    Yet another case where a newly create thread does not show up on the new-posts list...at least for me.

    My apologies for the otherwise pointless bump.

    Cheers!

      I don't see why you can't use homebrew on the other parts of the oven.
      Also, in terms of posts showing up, I've noticed it too, but I just wait a bit and hit the refresh button on my browser. Works every time.

        Thanks. It's just that replies to existing threads appear in the new-posts lists instantly, so I was suspicious when new threads took longer to show up...but maybe you're right and it would eventually make it to the list.

        Cheers!

          I like using the homebrew for setting the brick. It's nice and sticky and cheap. Use the heat stop to grout the interior dome and parging the throut.

            Hi kebwi
            sorry, I glossed over your posting this morning in my rush to get going.
            I built my whole Pompeii with the poor mans mortar 2 years ago and not one crack.
            I wouldn't waste my money on the expensive refractory mortars as you ideally need 2 types, one for small (less than 3mm ) joints and a second for the thicker joint.
            Use the mix in my thread and I'm sure that you will be satisfied an a few extra dollars to spend on your insulation!
            My thoughts anyway.

            Cheers.
