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!

  • 40" Corner oven in Manor Lakes - West Melbourne

    Well after much thought and reading here I finally made the decision to build an oven. It will be a 40" corner installation with a 20" dome. 19" wide and 12-13" high entrance. The base has storage for the lawnmower and wood pile. The long edges are 1800mm and the cut off on the front is 1100mm. Will photos as the build progresses.

    Any questions or if you see any issues please let me know.

          Hey Johnny,

          Why would a mower cause an explosion? The autoignition point of gasoline is 280C or 536F
          while the flash point is -43C or -45F. Unless he has an ash slot, where live coals can ignite the gasoline he has nothing to worry about. If he stores wood under his oven it will ignite at 250C. If he's getting that degree of heat lost from his over he should rebuild, its a heat sink.

            Vapours are my main concern, along with the possible sparks etc. not a real wise move, but would be OK if its not stored whilst WFO is in use.

              That would have to be one bad ass nasty spark to jump out of the oven, go up and then back over the dome (enclosure?), drop down and ignite the possible vapors. If that happened - it was destiny. If Dan is going out, it's more likely from choking on bad pizza

                  A few more picks of the top slap reinforcing. To support the counterlever corner it is supported by a piece of solid I beam.

                  Also got the insulating boards down and started butting the floor bricks.

                  re: spark igniting the petrol gases, as the entrance is diagonally opposite the entrance to the oven, and the spark (providing is still glowing) will then need to go into the storage area. So,thanks for your concern but its a risk I am prepared to accept.

                        Some things are slow in the U. S and A. Looks like the brickies can slap up a house quicker than these blokes can cobble up a WFO.

                              The very last thing that you should do is contact the council, you will be dealing with some moron who is just filling in time until pension day and who will know bugger all about how a properly built oven should perform.
