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!

  • Making a new grill and oven! need lots of help!

    Hey folks, im 29, and living in my parents house!

    haha, kinda, they dont live here, this is an old house down in argentina they had, and anyways, im here now, fixing it. They continue to live in DC, and come to visit often since I moved back here.

    They have this grill area in the backyard, and its really the only part of the house that is structurally not ok so we are tearing it down and redoing it, with the help of an array of stonemasons, tile people and whatever.

    I have a 60x60cm area where a brick oven can go, all the way to the right of the grill. from my reading, i gather that the top height should be around 45cm, and the door height, 63% of that, so around 25cm, plenty for pizza, bread, etc.

    I also have this collapsable wire rack that might go great inside of it, not sure if it will end up in there or not, id really like to be able to take it out and put it in.

    Anyways, here are the pics, hope they explain a good amount.

    I have the bricks, fire bricks, tiles, trim, cement, fireproof mortar... just not sure if i know what im doing!

    Another issue is that the grill when used, fills up this area (arched car port roof in brick) with smoke, and im hoping the new grill/oven doesnt do the same.


    Any tips are welcome, the workers start bright and early, 8am tomorrow (23/mar/13).
Working...
