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!

  • Inner/outer arch hight

    Have found all kinds of help on the Forum building my 42 inch oven. I have not found any mention of any advantage or disadvantage of the outer arch being lower than the inner arch. Would having the inner arch 12 inches high and the outer arch 11.5 inches make any difference in shunting smoke up the chimney? Any thoughts would be apprecieted.

    Re: Inner/outer arch hight

    I do not think it matters for the draw, but I will tell you that the major design flaw of my oven is that the inner and outer arches are the same size. This means that my inner door has to be in two parts to enable it to be placed.

    My advice is to make the outer arch big enough to pass the door through in one piece.

      I thought about that while building my oven. My guess would be that it really doesn't matter as long as your smoke chamber is well designed.

      EDIT: Tom, good point about the door fitting through.
      I made my outer entry wider but not taller than the inner entry, therefore I do need to slightly tilt my door to clear access through the front entry.
