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!

  • WFO's in Cold Climates

    SCChris made a good point in an earlier post about moisture forming on cold steel studs for an enclosure when the heat from the oven hits them during the cold winter months (well for some of us ). Is this an issue that anyone has run into that has freezing winter months?

    Here in New England, our cold weather is so cold (how cold is it?) It is so cold the moisture is squeezed out of the air by the mean cold winter. It is relatively dry and I haven't had any problems with moisture in the winter. Now, summertime is a different story, humidity is rampant! Whatever moisture there is on something (metal studs, cement board) will be quickly dried by the heat. Moisture absorbed by something over a period of time, then heated quickly and expanding too quickly damages the absorbing material. (firebricks as an example)
    Short answer - no problem here!
    Hope that helps...

      if well insulated the location where the studs are should be the same as the outside temps.

      My oven roof looses snow about the same rate as my house.
