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!

  • Oven finish and roofing in New Hampshire

    Hi All,

    I built my oven a couple years ago and didn't have time to finish it before heading off to college and now I am trying to do some repairs and figure out how to protect it better from the snow and freezing rain. I was thinking enclosing the structure in a three-sided wood shed to make it look a little like a maple syrup shack and blend in better with the trees, but I am worried that the heat rising from the front of the oven could burn the roof above if it extends over the front. Could someone please direct me to a build with a simple roof structure suited for snow? Any and all advice/comments would be so appreciated.

    Many thanks,
    Lou

    Send a photo of your oven, that will help.

    Put your opening on the high side of the roof.

      I'm in conn. you get more snow than us. use at least a 5 pitch roof 7-8 would be great but that's kind of steep for a small structure go to a local shed comp look at the 8'x8 sheds for a comparison, I did a 5 pitch but used metal studs I don't think it will ever collapse!!
