wood fired spit roaster - 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!

  • wood fired spit roaster

    I've been asked assist in puting together a kit oven by a guy who also wants a wood fired spit roaster. Anyone had some experience ? I was thinking along the lines of a fire brick pit (a few holes in the side to allow air in) over vermicrete, with a s'steel lid and inside an electric powered spit. Help !
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

    You could take a Forno Bravo Fireplace Kit and bore a hole in each side and mount the motor on one side add a grate to hold a tray if you need one . Bingo an instant Wood Fired roaster and a cozy Fireplace when your not interested in Roasting.

        CK, good to hear from you!

        I have a couple of windsheild wiper motors that may just do the trick. I love the ideas one can find here.

          Make sure you add some heat shielding, I made one from a wiper motor, and the casing ended up glowing red!!!
