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!

Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena

Hello,

For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.

If the link doesn't work, simply go to You Tube and type Forno Bravo Channel. The video title is How to Set your Forno Bravo Oven Dome Pieces.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

  • Oven Door.

    Hi All,
    Came up with this idea for an oven door.
    As I couldn't easily fabricate steel plate, I decided to use what was available and easy to form.

    I used a piece of hardwood for the outer layer, then placed a sheet of ceramic sheet, then a layer of 40mm square galvanised steel tube laid on top of each other, then another layer of ceramic board. All held together with coach bolts.

    Looks okay....will let you know how it performs.
    My only concern is how the ceramic board holds up to the wear and tear of being moved around etc.

    Re: Oven Door.

    I very much doubt it will work, the tubing will serve no purpose and the hardwood will scorch and or catch fire.
    The coach bolts alone will transmit LOTS of heat out of the oven.

    Back to the drawing board.

    Edit.
    DONT EVER PUT GAL in the oven unless you wish to die.

      What concerns me is the ceramic board - what is that? If it's a tile - bad idea. It will break on your second bake at best. The galv product is not the best, but any vapors from it being heated would most likely go up the flue. You apparently put a fair of amount of time on this thing - I hope it works.

        Hi All,

        The Ceramic Board is a compressed ceramic product thats used for flame proofing and underlay in houses. It has a very high heat resistance.

        Galvanised steel will only give off zinc fumes/vapour when heated to extreme temps. Issues during welding are common. The oven door will only be put in place when baking, so temp will be around 500f, which is not going to cause any zinc vapour as the zinc will not react at these temps.

        Noted your point on the bolts and they may heat enough to blacken the wood on the inside, but at the bolt heads on the outside are completely sealed, there will be no chance that oxygen will be available to allow a fire to develop.


        While researching the building of the door, I found several threads and info on people that used hardwood and only hardwood for there door. The door is usually soaked, but provided the hot coals are removed then the chance of fire is slim to nil.

        But in the interests of safety, I'll thoroughly fire the door several times to ensure that is is safe!!!!

        Will be the first to stand corrected and hold my hand up if I run into any problems.
