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!

    Hi All,

    Here are some pictures of a oven in Greve-in-Chianti.

    It used to be a big oven, must have been 5+ feet inside. Last year they tore out the old oven (you can see the remains of the dome in one of the photos) and split the space in two. On the left they made a place for grilling and on the right they installed a precast oven.

    Overview of the oven:


    Closer view


    Fire in the oven, note the grill space on the left. Also note that they saved the original arch stones and installed them above the precast oven door.


    These next pictures are taken through the rectangular hole visible in the above photo. They let you see into the enclosure. I have lightened this photo so that the old dome brick is clearly visible. The white mass on the right is the dome of the oven covered in an insulating blanket.


    I have some pictures of me using the grill (Need to get those off of my Dad's camera), but I did not use the oven....
