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!

    Yes. FB actually sells such a stand although it isn't mobile.

      Anything is possible. All you need to do is to calculate the all up weight and have a reinforced steel 'chassis' or stand made preferably with 6 castors if you want to continually move it easily.
      A metal fabricator will meake easy work of such an exercise.

          Re: oven stand

          Are you talking a brick or a FB cast refractory oven?
          I built a 40" Pompeii and used around 130 full firebricks and 30 odd house bricks, multiply them bu 3-4kg each Plus the insulation (either board which I would suggest to keep the weight down) and the dome insulation (again I suggest the superwool thermal blanket).
          This would total to about 700kg or around 1600 lbs.
          If you use a cast FB oven, you will need to contact them for their weight but I would expect them to be at least half as they are much thinner but designed to do quite specific tasks. If you want to cook longer, then you must add extra weigh in thermal mass.

            Could you not try for a sclaled down version of his commercial wood-oven? Hope this is of some help to you.
