Portable Forno Bravo in Boulder - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

        Website is up.

        Thanks for inquires. The site is now up.

        Our 2007 catering business is really taking off and we are finding new venues and opportunities every week. We personally have seen the potential first hand and even our customers comment, "What a great business idea."

        We can be reached at the exisiting email address for further information.

          Joseph said that experience event caterers were coming up to him saying that they've been doing this for 15+ years, and that the wood-fired oven was the best thing they've seen in years. The Fire Within is close to fully booked for the near-term, and they have a good list of events contacting them.

          We are still deciding how we are going to handle the plans for the trailer -- and the things you need to do to keep the oven attached to the trailer, the dome structurally secure, etc. We can talk off-line about that.

          If anyone is thinking about a trailer oven, you can contact me directly.

          Pretty cool.....

          My friend and I are actually building an oven on a trailer this spring - ya know, when the ice melts off his driveway - and we'll be traveling to different farmer's markets in the area to make pizza and bread. He's got an LLC for the bread, and I'll be getting the LLC for the Pizza, as you have one business for each type of baking in Wisconsin. If you don't mind, I'd like to take your idea and run with it for the name, "Just In Time Pizza".

          We're planning to build the oven on a 4x6 trailer, using welded angle iron as the base, with a hand-built forno-style oven on top, and we'll likely end up building the house around it like you have shown in the pictures, just because we'll need the extra structure for the bumpy roads around here. 1200 pizzas in 3 days... that's amazing... I think we'll have to start doing carnivals. =)

            Out of curiosity, when you do events like that, do you bring dough balls and stretch the pizzas there or do you have them pre-stretched? I'm trying to visualize how you have the dough all at the right point of readiness for an all-day event when you have a steady line of people waiting. I bet you have to spend a day or so making all the dough ahead of time, wouldn't you?

              Like everyone else, I too see the boundless possibilities of a mobile pizza set-up. What I am running into is problems with existing Health Code regulations. Here in Atlantic Canada, like many other areas, the Health Code would classify a mobile oven as a pushcart/hot dog stand as it is not enclosed. The regulations are quite specific in that any "scratch" product needs to be made in an enclosed facility so that it is protected from any form of contamination including "sunlight." So, by building or purchasing one of these units, I would have to serve only "processed" product such as McCain Frozen Pizzas. What's the point! I might as well open up a McDonald's. Does anyone know if the Fire Within has managed to find ways to circumvent narrow minded Health Inspectors who want to protect us from "sunlight."
