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 opening question

    Hi all,

    I am at the point where I have put down my oven floor and am thinking about the construction of the dome courses. One question has me a little stumped - the exact placement of the oven opening. Should the back of the arch for the oven door run flush with the adjacent solider brick on each side or should it be set back a little? Is there a position which is the optimum placement for the subsequent hanging of the dome courses onto the entry arch? Any advice would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    I believe it should be flush....prevent turbulent air flows and avoid a place for ashes to gather. You want to be able to rake out coals and sweep the hearth so if you set it back I think you'd create a problem.

    On with the new year....

      Thanks SpringJim,

      I played around with a dry layout of the soldier course today and what you said made perfect sense. No matter how much you read new questions always come up when you actually have to do it.

      Cheers
