Plans for gas fired oven? - 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!

  • Plans for gas fired oven?

    I am looking for plans for a gas fired brick pizza oven, or a contact with someone who could design one. Any ideas?

    Re: Plans for gas fired oven?

    Gas ovens are much more complicated than, say, gas grills because of the hemispherical dome, which can contain gas and provide an explosion hazard. Commercial gas ovens are expensive partly because of the sophisticated safety controls.

    If you are looking for a commercial oven, there are lots of gas choices, and the expense issue becomes less important, because you're making money on it. Forno Bravo makes a commercial gas oven.

    As far as building a home oven and sticking a propane burner into it, I really don't recommend it.

      Thanks, good advice. I was actually trying to retrofit an existing gas indoor barbeque. It already has gas and a chimney so I was hoping there might be a way to do it safely.
