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!

  • Oven building in NZ

    Hi ya all love the forum.
    To cut a long story short I have allways wanted a pizza oven but every oven I saw built was set in stone,brick ,blocks etc I wanted a oven that if I ever moved home I could pick it up with a fork lift put it on a truck and take my prize possession with me.

    So I said to my good old Dad in his 70s now and has been a engineer /mechanic all his life and now a trout fishing guide I want to build a pizza oven base I can pick up move he said hmmmm its got to look good and its got to be heavy and solid so it suits the oven sitting to it... He then started pulling steel out from under the house and out of his shed this is what he came up with . ( more photos to come)

    and that is why you need a big shed and should never throw anything away. You never know when it will come in handy!

    Daznz, It is a mighty looking stand. Is you dad also helping in the rest of the construction?

      Hi ya Paul
      Yes Dad made all the steel work timber work etc etc on the days he was not fishing construction was a team effort and a lot of fun . It looks like I didnt do alot but that was because I was taking the photos hahaha.

      Paul I loved the posts of your oven construction I viewed it many months a go mine is alot easier as I brought the oven as a kitset you did a awesome job.

              I absolutely love that chimney tower and the use of steel for the base. Steel is real!

                  Daz,

                  I love the look of the timber and the black metal. You seem to have built this very quickly! How many beers has it taken you so far?

                      Thanks guys we just need to do a finishing coat of morter/cement and a coloured oxide.
                      I took a far bit of time off work to get this done hahaha... I would say building the oven about 5 dozen beers drunk (some nice hot days) And theres been a hell of alot more drunk standing around it with friends
                      Im very happy with the heating up time of the oven she gets to over 500c in around 1 and a half hrs.
