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!

  • Convection for a WFO

    I was helping a friend cure their oven and we found out that we could get much more even temps using a computer fan with the double hot plate we were using for heat. I didn't think it was possible, but the plastic computer fan survived to an average oven temp of around 275. We didn't push it any further because, after we hit around a 300 dome, we starting burning wood fires (I'm overkill when it comes to curing).

    My friend would like to get a more even pre-heat by utilizing some form of convection, but, to hit the 650ish temps he's working at, the computer fan obviously wouldn't work.

    Doe anyone have any ideas? The fan would have to circulate the air in the oven and not introduce fresh air.

      Heat travels up, your oven walls will transport the heat again through the dome to the floor by conduction.

      That would have me thinking you do not need a fan....

      Just my 2 cents though... maybe having a fan indeed helps but I think it will hardly make a difference....
