Portable clay wood fired oven. - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

  • Portable clay wood fired oven.

    Hi all, I thought i would post some pics of my portable clay wood fired oven for those of you interested in going down this path.
    As i am am living in a rental i needed a portable oven that could fit through my side gate. The final dimensions are 70cm x 120cm and the dome is fireclay/sand/sugarcane mulch and the base is structural pine. I am pretty happy with how it has turned out, easy to move around and can cook 2 pizzas side by side in 1 and a half minutes, So far i have cooked 15 pizzas in a row with no problems. And the best part of the whole build is that it only cost $300 to make

      If it is fit for purpose and you are happy with how it works then it is a wonderful thing. At the cost of the build it is a very practical alternative and if you are mobile then the oven should be too.

      Congratulations. I would be interested to follow the longevity of your work. I am sure that it may surprise some people.
      Cheers ......... Steve

        That is a really cool oven!
        I have a friend who's first oven a cob like yours became garden fill under a layer of mulch, when he moved.
        The secound a "paver special" built on a brick pallet was picked up and dumped in a trailer and went south, with a job move. I've always wondered how it went.
        I was always disappointed he would never post what he had done on the forum.
        ...so to see a movable homebuilt oven is great!

            Put a little portland in it. That will stop their offspring from coming back .

              How did you make it exactly? I am looking for a cheap portable one myself. Do you have any sort of plans?
