Hi,
I might as well admit right now, I dont have a brick oven yet. I am a Canadian living in Spain. We own a restaurant here and are ready to try a new venture.... AND - there isnt a really excellent pizza to be had anywhere near us.
Ive been reading about Forno Bravo ovens during my internet research and seem to keep coming back to the site.
Im hoping to find out more about everything really, what all I can do with it on a commercial scale, resources for learning/training, you know, everything.
I never have much luck with the search feature on these things, but Ill certainly try it before bugging everyone with dumb questions.
Thanks, and again,
greetings

Welcome Cardinal. I have a feeling anything you need to know is already posted somewhere on this site, but if you can't find the answer, my feeling is that there are no "dumb questions." Everyone here is very helpful.

Hey Johnny, Welcome, sourcing refractory insulation and firebrick is a chronic problem for Australian builders. Glad to have you on board.

G'day Jonny,

Can you give me some details of the company you work for and some prices for your products? PM me when you have a chance.

Cheerio,

Mark CH

Johnny, hi there, I am an Australian just about to begin construction of my first oven. I'm a bit confused about all the different materials so it will be great to have your expertise on tap for the project.

One question: if I opt for a dome oven it will involve a lot of firebrick cutting (angles etc to shape the bricks) - do you supply pre-shaped bricks? If not, how hard are they to cut? my only experience with concrete and brick cutting has been with an angle grinder but precision is not part of that experience!

Cheers

Crowtrapper.
