How Your Oven Works - 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!

  • How Your Oven Works

    I have been describing verbally how wood-fired ovens wook to folks for a while, and it always makes sense, so I tried to capture it in a series of graphics.

    Here are three graphics that show reflective heat, natural convection and conduction. The next posting shows two graphics on how coals work in a brick oven, and then a graphic on retained heat.

    They are pretty simple, but does a picture tells a thousand words?

    Click on the next posting to see the graphics for using coals and retained heat.

    Here are the three graphics on using coals and retained heat.

    These are used in the new Wood-Fired Cooking e-Book, to help describe the different ways you can cook with a WFO.

    The previous posting shos graphics for Reflection, Conduction and Convection.

      Just starting to look over the PDF, and the first comment I wrote down to send you then was that I thought these graphics are quite usefu. They give new users, even the experienced the whole idea very quickly and concisely.
