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!

  • Oven on metal rollers

    Michael,

    I have always been interested in putting an oven on metal rollers. How does the weight distribution feel? Not tippy?

    Do you move it to vairous places in your garden, or have plans to take it with you for tailgating at Candlestick? :-)

    I have heard from other folks intersted in doing something similar, so let us know how it went and how you think it came out. It looks great.

    Wheels

    I used wheels rated @ 350 LBS each they are cast iron covered with solid rubber on ball bearings. I kept them out as far as possible to prevent tipping. the two front swivel the rear are fixed. I would keep all swiveling if I were to do it again. It rolls fine on a smooth surface even over things like extention cords. Never a threat of tipping. It would be a bear to load in a truck and take to the park though.
    I keep it in one spot now that I have it in place. I put it on wheels at first so I could work on it away from my outdoor kitchen constuction that is going on at the same time. this worked great. The wheels are bolted on and the intention was to remove them when it was complete, but, I decided they worked so well I'd just leave them on. I bought the wheels at Harbor Freight
