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!

  • Anyone willing to make and ship me a door???

    Greetings all!!

    I have been an avid reader of these forums for what feels like years now. I finally purchased an oven last year and have had a ton of fun making pizzas and roasting..but this year I want to get into baking breads. For that I will need an insulated door.

    Forno Bravo does not sell one that will fit and although I know how fun it is to make your own it would literally be years before I get around to it. I have found welders on craigslist but I dont think they have the knowledge on ovens to get me a good product.

    Is ther anyone on the forums with some spare time that may be willing to fabricate and ship me a door that will give me some insulation and help to retain my heat after my pizzas are done?

    I am in New Orleans, Louisiana and would pay for the fabrication and shipping. Any help is great appreciated.

    BTW.. The oven I have is the Forno Bravo Napolino 70. I believe the specs are on the website.

    Thanks!

    Bobby

    PS. If I have posted this in the wrong section please let me know!

    If you don't want to build one yourself, check out your community college welding programs. I see that Delgado Community College in New Orleans has such a program. Often these tech skills programs are looking for interesting student projects and usually charge just for materials. They certainly will be more interested in taking on a small project--such as an insulated oven door--than a commercial metal fabrication shop.

    I had two large carts built for foundation bays beneath my oven by one of the welding students at our local community college for his final project. I use the top of the carts for baking/serving prep surface while the underneath area serves as storage for baking/serving supplies and wood for the oven. The instructor was so pleased to have the project for the student that he made and gave me a light-weight, working door as a thank you.

    p.s. Lots of folks on this forum have built simple, yet effective doors...don't just give up on yourself or your abilities so easily

        no luck from the local college....I do have some interest from a local welder. But he has never done a oven door before

        Am I over simplifying this...or can I just take my old (Non-insulated) door that came with the oven cut 2 pieces of the FB Board 36242 and fit it to the opening and close it up with a weld?

        Keeping the thermometer that is already in the door???

              Yes, that was (supposed to be) the link the the 'show me your door' thread. Plenty of good ideas for doors in there.
