Smile Welcome to the new Canada Regional Forum

Hello to all of our northern neighbors,

Due to the fact that a number of members have asked for a regional forum, we have made available this new forum for all of Canada. Thank you to Fornax hominus for being the proverbial straw that got this up and running. We welcome everyone to this forum and hope to hear from all of you very soon.
This is a great way to get to know your neighbors for years to come.

Cheers,
Forno Bravo

Thanks, James, for setting this up. As a fornoholic, I'm building #2 on Vancouver Island, trying to improve on #1 in Calgary. The forums are always a tremendous help.

Thanks James for setting up this forum.

I am interested to see who else has a WFO in my neck of the woods. I already know That's Amore. But who else is in the Sudbury Ontario area with a WFO or considering building one?

Maybe we can organize WFO dinner parties?????

Though I do not live near you, I have recently completed my brick pizza oven. Last night was pizza night, the pizza was amazing, I stated that all the long hours and hard work weret, certainly worth it.

I would like to make bread in my oven today, I need to purchase another thermometer to regulate the heat, do you have any tips on the bread making?

Hello Country Living,

I just started baking bread this year and still a newbie at it. I just started baking what I liked to eat. I first tried Foccaccia which turned out good but I found it messy to work with and since my WFO is at my cottage/camp I don't want to spend a lot of time cleaning up a mess. Lately I have been baking french baguettes which are turning out very well. I tried to find the recipe I used on the net for you, however could not find that particular one again. I attached a couple of pics of my last batch.

The one tip I did learn with baking bread is to keep the oil you use to coat the bowls for letting the dough to rise to a very minumum is you like your bread with a crispy crust.

I do read alot of articles and books on baking in a WFO and they all recommend baking large batches of bread to keep the humidity level high in the oven. So the next time I will be baking baguettes it will be a huge batch.

Cheers.

On Vancouver Island.
I need to find out how many bricks are needed in a 42 inch dome?
Foundation & concrete structure floor just poured. Waiting for first floor to cure before moving on to hearth. Vermiculite mix the only way to go? Does vermiculite really break down that much when using a mixer? Can hardly wait to have the finished oven.


Thanks.
Donald

Hi Cobbe hill

On Page 67 of the FB plans it states 65 for the floor and 135 for the dome. I ordered 220 and at the end of constructing the dome I was short 4 bricks. So I purchased 6 more so that I have a couple of spares. So for me it was 224 bricks for a 42" high dome oven.

I can't help you on you on you vermiculite question I used the FB board it was easier to install and my oven retains good heat for days.

Good luck on your build.
