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!

    Re: oven door construction

    My first oven door was jut a temporary door of uninsulated 20mm ply that didn't last long and ended up in a pile of ashes.

    My Mk II "temporary" door is a bit of 6mm ply (the old arch form work) that is glued and screwed to a couple of 50mm thick aerated concrete blocks and has a thermometer through it. The plywood does not touch any brick so is not showing any signs of charring

    It has lasted for 6 months without fail so far and one day I'll get around to making a permanent door that is better looking.

        Re: oven door construction

        Thanks Paul
        your door is a Great idea as low on time and funds at the moment so I brought some hebel ($6) and from what I had lying around knocked up a passable door. Cut in the hebel to fit the revel and got a tidy fit . Lit a small fire as the oven has had a good soaking due to the rain to find out how it worked. When I blocked the oven late Fri night when thr fire was dead I fitted the old meat thermometer through the hebel showed 200F next morning 175F and 3pm sat still at 125 F. Great to know the oven holds its heat but the ovens soaked it real steamy when you open the door. Hope this rain stops so i can dry this oven out and seal the render. by the way were did you get the thermometer from? The child brides real crook on my using the meat one and wants it back. And the Degree in F and the low temp rating only going to 200F I could use a proper one.

        Again my THANKS
        Dave

          Dave,

          Glad to see that the door is working OK. I ordered my thermometer online from Reliance Pacific. The link to the thermometer I bought is 200 mm Short Probe Wood Fired and Gas Pizza Ovens Thermometer - Reliance Pacific
