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.

  • Neill's prototype oven door

    I'm not sure whether this is the right place to post this thread, but it seems the most appropriate.
    As I will be baking my first lot of sourdough bread today after a small pizza lunch, I thought that I needed better heat retaining doors on the oven.
    I cast some aluminium doors a year ago but haven't got around to insulating them yet.
    So yesterday (24 hours before baking) I decided that I'd better do something and if it works, then to apply it to my adjustable existing doors.
    I grabbed a scrap piece of 1/2" ply and cut it to shape. I also had a salvaged sheet old expanded metal and cut it with a 2" allowance for folding and securing to the plywood.
    I then cut out the corners allowing for a reinforced corner (could weld it if needed), cut out 2 layers of 1" thermal blanket, inserted it into the mesh inserted the plywood back and tacked it into the sides of the ply. A little minor panel beating saw the corners straight and square. Put on a spare grab handle that I had lying around and almost ready.
    I will lace the fibreglass sealing strip if needed as the temp door will be pushed up against the existing sealing strip built into the oven door surround.
    The door will be held in place with the high tech brick stack, but I did say that it is a prototype!.
