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!

  • Materials in Vancouver, BC

    Hi everyone,

    I've been reading the forum for a month or so now while I prepare to build my oven and have learned a lot from all the members, what a great resource.

    I've had some difficulty tracking down materials in the Lower Mainland, but I've almost found everything so I thought I'd share.

    Firebricks:

    BC Brick Supply in Richmond- 1.18/brick
    IXL Masonry in Burnaby- 1.80/brick

    Fire clay

    Only supplier I could find was Greenbarn Potters Supply in Surrey. 100lb bag-16.00

    Vermiculite/Perlite Large bags

    AADT Solutions Vancouver Branch-604 322 6652 Have 110L bags of perlite for 13.75 and vermiculite for 26.50
    David Hunter Garden Center on Broadway has bags for around 50.00
    John's Plant Factory on Hastings has bags for around 40.00

    Insulating blanket/board

    Clayburn Refractories in Abbotsford. They sell firebrick and premix mortar as well, but the prices were significantly higher than elsewhere so I decided not to use them. I suspect that I may have been quoted a high capacity firebrick rather than medium, but by then I had found another supplier.

    One interesting note is that both Clayburn and BC Brick reported that ALL of their pizza oven customers had been buying and using the premix wet mortar. After more research on the forum, I continued my search for fireclay as the general consensus is the homebrew mix is superior.

    I hope this will save people some time and feel free to post if you have any questions.

    Jesse

    I'm looking for some ceramic fireboard. Does anyone know where I could get some?

      Clayburn in Abbotsford would have it or be able to point you in the right direction.

        Thanks Jesse.

        I just started the search for materials and you saved me tons of time.
