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!

  • Cantilevered door for bread oven

    I'm hoping to weld up an insulated, cantilevered oven door, simliar to this (around 3:00), but maybe with 2"fb layered in between two pieces of steel.
    anybody have or built something like this?

    Very interesting door. Not sure how it operates but there must be a foot or arm lever connected to it. I used Stainless on the inside of my door and made it 4 inches of FB Board, it insulates very well but it is a simple plug style Stainless pop rivets hold it together.






    The door now has handles and a Bi-metal thermometer in it, Not shown in these photos.

      no lever. it's just counter weighted so it tips flat. the ash dump is recessed so the door lays flat on oven floor to load bread.

      your door is sharp chip. let me know how the rivets hold up over time. i'm pretty sure doors will always fall apart eventually, especially with heavy use.

        Stainless Rivets in stainless 22 ga I think they will hold up for a long time.
