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!

  • Cob oven Bathurst

    Hi this my first oven build and I am going to to use technology 1000s of years old .My problem is the latest technology ie down loading photos onto my computer and then posting them where I want .I will get some help from a younger friend soon.
    I have laid a pad of decomposed granite ,built a heavy timber stand,and laid a layer of bear bottles covered in a sawdust clay slip mix .Next is a layer of sand then bricks .And then finally I get to start on the dome
    cheers

    You may be building an old school oven but there's no use in discarding some of the new school stuff that cheap and available now. I'm sure those Romans would have.
    5 to 1 Pealite and Portland cement will give you an excellent floor insulation, 8 to 1 pealite to Portland cement over the dome will do. Pearlite cheap and available.
    I would have built a clay dome at the start but due to the oven having to be located far enough from the house ( a 2 storey Queenslander) for smoke not to be a problem. And the problem of high humidity summers and storms. I decided against it. The domes is firebrick but brick biulster cut. The rest of the base and cover is recycled salvage and swap. Took me a while, the neighbors think I'm nuts but except pizza quite readily,
    Enjoy the journey

          When the going gets tough, the tough get going.

          So is the dome made of fire bricks?
