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!

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.

  • Steel pipe anchor plate importance/purpose?

    How important is the base anchor plate? I'm not entirely sure what purposes it serves. One obvious suggestion is structural stability; it's the only thing actually holding the pipe in place, but is that it? I mean, what if I made a little "shoe" out of brick, two or three bricks high and inserted the pipe into that, or what about the extent to which the pipe's positioning through a roof essentially holds it in place? Does the anchor plate serve any other purpose, some sort of thermal or aerodynamic behavior I am not currently envisioning?

    Thanks.

    Re: Steel pipe anchor plate importance/purpose?

    I think the anchor plate is intended to be an anchor point. Remember, these pipes and anchors were originally intended for wood stoves and such, not for imbedding into a masonry oven. I think most of us that have used a Duravent type of product have used the anchor plate (I did). I think the verdict is still out as to whether you should secure the plate with Tapcons or just mortar it in place. I used Tapcons, and the more I think about it, this may be the cause of my reoccuring arch crack (the metals expanding at a different rate than the firebricks and mortar).
    I would use it just for the extra stability it gives before and during the build around it, but not screw it in tight. Several inches of vermicrete and stucco should be enough to hold it in place unless you going with an extra tall run.
