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!

  • Locking the oven

    We will be starting the WFO for our community garden ,hopefully in the next few weeks
    Its going to be in an easily accessible piece of park land .
    What we need to incorporate for safety and security is a way of locking the oven so it cant burn some kids or be vandalised.
    Does anyone have some ideas ?

    You can make a lockable door, but it will have to be on the outer opening. Maybe you can have a blacksmith or ornamental iron fabricator make something up for you.

    Current WFO build - Dry Stone Base & Gothic Vault

    When we build, let us think that we build for ever.

      A roofed enclosure that could keep the oven dry, perhaps with some seats and benches inside. Maybe weld mesh sides covered in passionfruit vines.
      Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

        Lockable security fence (ornamental iron or masonry or chain link; aesthetic choice) around the WFO.

          Do a google search for "The St. Paul Bread Club" and contact David S. Cargo (he also goes by "escargot"). He researches and documents community ovens around the country and would very likely have some ideas, or even perhaps examples, that could help you.

          Good luck with your community oven!

          P.S. David also frequents the "Brick Oven Group" on Yahoo. That may also be a good place to pose this question.
