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!

  • securing an oven to trailer

    I am getting ready to build a mobile pizza trailer, with a modular casa2g 100 and am looking for input into the best way to secure the oven to the trailer. Any ideas/advice would be greatly appreciated.

      Re: securing an oven to trailer

      I secured my mobile oven dome to its supporting slab by grinding grooves into the supporting slab where it meets the base of the outer dome shell. My oven sits in a steel cradle (which has 6 wheels), made from 1/4' galv. angle and the cradle is held into the trailer with chains and turnbuckles. because my trailer is a single axle it has unbalanced a couple of times and the draw bar went 45 degrees skyward, but the oven didn't budge. I've been over plenty of rough roads and the oven is still holding together well. I've seen plenty with loose floppy flues so I made my flue removable and it has worked really well. It slides into a stainless steel sleeve, not hard to build and works beautifully.

        I also plan to put a ring of concrete around the base and on every joint and also at the bottom of every segment joint for extra protection.
        David S. could you give a link to photos of your mobile build. Thank's

          I didn't create a thread for the build of my mobile, but there are photos in some of the mobile oven threads somewhere. Due to a computer failure and an external hard drive that wasn't working I lost all of our photos about three years ago so I can 't access old stuff.

            Thanks everyone for the responses and input. Here are some photos of my progress, with much help on the welding side from my father.
