Modeling The Oven Try One - 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!

  • Modeling The Oven Try One

    Hi all,
    I have decided to build a brick oven. I am going to go at it by sourcing all the materials locally. I have two very good places within a couple miles that carry everything that will be needed.

    I have taken the time to try to model my oven in 3D as a way to work out some details in my head. The biggest thing is the chimney. If anyone could take a look at the linked video and give me some thoughts. I am trying to avoid an arched front, since I really don't like the look.

    Nice modeling. It's good to see the original half-brick, angle iron style is still in consideration. Not every oven needs to be a work of art.

    Your chimney will work better if you angle the bricks on the sides over the entry to form a "funnel" for your flue gasses.
