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!

  • new oven design...worth a look?

    Hey guys!
    Found photos of this oven build at a workshop from the MHA. Interesting idea?! Make sure you look at the photos of the restaurant build in Toronto. Looks like a lot of interesting cooking appliances fired with wood!

    P.S. Here's a link to the website for the photos

    Interesting design. A barrell without the vault and turned sideways. Theoretically, this should still set up a nice rolling convection.

      Did you look at the tour photos of the other WF appliances in that Toronto restaurant? Some of this was pretty cool looking stuff...

          These guys are amazing and some of their skills need to be tapped by our builders. If you have not looked through their site you should. Especially go through the past meetings. each year they build a different pizza oven - to be torn down at the end of the meeting. One item that was mentioned on another thread is the transition from the oven to the flue stack - chamfered bricks for a smooth transition rather than a sharp 90 degree cut that can result in turbulent flow.

            I have been looking at what these guys have been doing for a couple of years. They are truly a great resource and have some really astounding ideas for these types of appliances. The masonry heater stuff is really cool and quite ancient techonology.
