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!

  • pizzaoven on a traler?

    We're a bunch of swedish scoutleaders wanting to build our own woodfired pizzaoven. Our main concern is that we would like to build it on a trailer so that we can bring it to jamborees etc.
    Do you think its possible to build an oven on a trailer or will it shake to pieces?
    max. load for a trailer in Sweden is about 1 ton (2000pounds) can you make a pizzaoven that light?
    Sincerely
    Marcus

    I was quite surprised by this simple design. It's an mouth venting Adobe oven.
    Simple enough for an aspiring Eagle Scout candidate to construct.
    They pull this all over the area.

      And the link to their website, which has larger and more abundant pics is home I emailed the owner to try and get some more detailed info about his ovens but he didn't seem very interested in helping out. I guess he's afraid of competition even though he's in Washington state and I'm in South Carolina. Short of doing an oven like he has done, I don't think you'll be able to build an oven like the Pompeii design on a trailer at under a 2000 pounds. I think the Pompeii design requires over 200 firebricks @ 8 pounds a piece is 1600 pounds. Then you have to factor in your stand, mortar, insulation, etc. I've planned on my trailer for my oven being able to carry 4000 pounds to be on the safe side. Hope this helps.

        Anvegard,

        To to Joseph Pergolizzi's website at Home to see what he's done with FB ovens on trailers. I'm pretty sure he'd be willing to discuss your project with you.
