Inflatable Form - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

  • Inflatable Form

    I don't know if this exists or not, but it would be a great tool for the DIY builder. Imagine an inflatable 36" and 42" Pompeii form. It would be made of heavy vinyl or other suitable material and would be inflated with an air compressor and the DIY builder would build over it just like a form and then deflate it and remove it when finished. If this does not exist, can it be made?

    I think they exist - they are called exercise balls. The 105 should work for a 42 inch oven.

      That is along the lines of what I am talking about, but what I am looking for is the entire form. Imagine an igloo shaped inflatable form. It could even have a brick pattern drawn on the outside as a guide so you know approximately where to place each brick.

        What about an inflatable pizza oven, now that would take all the work out of it..?

          Like beer in a can, I think pizza from an inflatable would taste funny
