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!

  • Mortar and a Poratable oven

    Hi, I am toying with the idea of making a camping portable wood burning oven. Now I know itís not going to produce the perfect heat, will probably crack, be a bit small and not last very long!! But hay that part of the fun in building it. I have snooped around on this site and basically understand the common rules in building a Pizza oven thermal lagging, heat convection ect, including the Beer Keg idea. (Not ruled that out just yet) but I want this to be quick and dirty put together take apart idea!! I know you can get a dome pizza oven mounted on a trailer, But how do you stop it cracking? My first idea was to build a small dome at first and transport it in foam lined wooden box. Then place a pizza stone or slab on top the fire embers (In stead of insulation under the slab) with the dome just placed on top, then light a fire inside the dome and see what happens. We might be able to modify the design to just cover the fire and place a smaller pizza s stone on a wire stand and cook off of that. The basic principle is the same as cooking on a B-B-Q with a lid. But thatís no fun and doesnít taste the same. The dome construction can be a metal one lined on the out side, or a clay moulded one lined on the out side (First thoughts were a large flower pot or cement moulded around a wire frame. Any suggestion would be most help full.
