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!

  • Fabricated my insulated door.

    We built the insulated door to the oven. Using steel sheets,
    4" of CF insulation and gate handles.
    No bolts, all welded on. I still have to clean the steel and paint the outside
    (only) with
    high heat paint.
    I plan on using a gasket of some sort but im not sure what, as im skeptical
    about ceramic fiber stove ropes,
    the fibers are very loose and the package clearly states to not go near food.
    I was thinking of using gas oven door gasket ropes, anyone know what the
    temp rating is on that?

    Anyways here are the photos.

          Your build is looking great! I will be interested to hear how hot the outside of the door gets.

                  Re: Fabricated my insulated door.

                  My door is 4 inches of ceramic fiber board wrapped in thin aluminum sheet metal attached to a piece of plywood (on the outside). I initially propped it up against the oven opening (which is rimmed by a flat 1 1/2 in lip of brick) with a brick. No gasket. I recently put metal handles on a nice piece of wood and adhered to the outside (plywood) of the door with 600 degree silicone. Now no brick prop is needed.
                  The oven seals well enough to extinguish embers, and is generally 550 F the next morning after pizza and drops about 100 F each day after that - quicker if the oven is used to bake / cook. I haven't though I needed an additional seal.

                    Thanks for the info, my door is tight also, however ive got lots of extra gas oven door rope gasket which is not loose fibers, id like to use this but i dont know what the temp rating is, and apparently neither does the manufacture.

                        According to the Internet, a self-cleaning oven can get over 900* f. I would think the gasket would be rated to handle that temp. Just a guess.

                            Its funny how i cant find any info on this on the net



                            Does it not bother anyone else how the Fiber ropes let out fibers and are so loose? This is not good for food laying around in the oven?
