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!

  • Trying to cool the air space in front of oven

    I own a restaurant with an indoor oven with natural venting only. The oven has a vent toward the front, which works great and no smoke seeps into the room. But, the airspace for about 5 feet in front of the oven gets really hot. Does anyone have any suggestions on a separate vent with a fan that I could install to pull the hot air up and out of the building? Any input is appreciated. Thanks!

    Sounds to me like you could use a standard roof mounted commercial exhaust fan (typically used for a class 2 hood) or if your building owner would allow just a residential whole house fan in the center of that 5' area. Mounted on the roof ducted to the ceiling with the ridged metal ducting (not flex duct). This will certainly pull the hot air out of the building in that area but its not going to do much for the operator of the oven
    Oh and I wouldn't operate the exhaust fan while initially starting the fire for the days cooking, I would think it would interfear with the draw of the chimney until it gets hot then I'm sure it will be fine. You cant really mess with that area you are talking about because the oven needs air to breath. You have to think of the oven like a fireplace only higher if you start tweaking with the air space in the front of a standard fireplace it throws the whole process off, the natural convection needs to take place inorder for the fire to keep going.
    Good luck

        make sure the exhaust fan has a speed contoller (installed at the switch)....will help "fine tune" conditions
