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!

  • Gas powered brick oven..?

    Hello All,
    I am new to this forum.
    I have a gas line that runs to my backyard. I would like to build a gas powered barbecue grill and gas powered oven next to the grill with it.

    I share this information in order to request advice, suggestions, etc. And, to see if there is another forum section on "Forno Bravo" where I should post this question instead.

    An additional question:
    I've come across a lot of information and design for wood fire ovens. I see that these must have a flue/chimney. However, what about gas powered outdoor brick ovens? Gas burns fairly clean. So, it seems to me that a chimney is not in order. Still, what about the pressure build-up? How is this managed?

    I do appreciate anyone's help w/ this.

    Jose, I'm wondering the same thing. I have a gas line in my backyard and am wondering if I could use it with a wood-fired oven--if nothing else, to kick-start the wood.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

      sorry guys.

      we only discuss Wood fired ovens here. The introduction of gas to the build is not allowed to be discussed on the forum. Just a heads up. I will try and find the rules, just dangerous mainly i think is the reason.

        Im sure its just a safety thing not a rule as such.
        A gas oven has to have fail safes in case the flame goes out, if the flame goes out and there are no fail safes the gas will still run and if someone should happen along say after 10 minutes and chucks a match in the oven will turn into a bomb.

        Booooooom.......bye bye.......... If ya going to do it please make a vid and put it on Youtube......

        At least if wood goes out the re ignition is a slow process and not instant.

          Lots of ovens with gas as the heat source, Just have to know what your doing.

          Kinda defeats the purpose really...
          The cost of living continues to skyrocket, and yet it remains a popular choice.
