Heat profile of the "as designed" oven - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

  • Heat profile of the "as designed" oven

    Has anybody done a fair scientific heat profile on the pompeii oven as it is designed in the ebook? I would like to see one with at least a thermocouple embedded in the cooking surface and one within 1 inch of the dome surface and while I'm dreaming here one on the dome outer surface. Fire to a clean dome and then plot temperatures to time and get a graph.

    I want to know if the as designed oven will give me at least 2 hours in the 425F to 350F range.

    The real art of conversation is not only to say the correct thing at the right time, but also to leave
    unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

    All right another geeky engineer. Do a seach on "probes" and maybe another on "Temperature profile" About a year or two ago somone poseted some detail graphs of temperature and time for firing up the oven and cooling down.

    Also consider slow cooking where your cook for a longer time at a lower temperature., With the food product (meat) covered by foil it will still be quite moist. if you are thinking bread then you may need to charge the fires to a slightly higher temp, steam the oven with a sorayerand then toss in the dough.
