My Oven/BBQ - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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 Leepinla,

    Is that the oven we see in the 3rd picture?

    My Oven Thread:


    • #3
      No that is the BBQ side


      • #4
        this is the oven side


        • #5
          nice work

          I really like your ingenuity with the combination, but can you explain the other side? Is the opening a vent for the barbecue? It looks a bit like an oven opening but the dimensions are not oven like.


          • #6
            Great, otherwise, that was going to be one very shallow oven.

            The other side looks like a great place to grill to me, build a fire on those bricks or scoop some hot embers out of the oven and grill away!

              Do you have some concept drawings you can share with us?

              I'd like to see what it looks like when it's finished...before it's finished!!

                Both sides are on a thermal/insulating hearth
                On the Deep Pit BBQ side
                I have run a gas line
                cause sometimes you want it now,
                and the holes under the bbq well?
                Letís have some idea?
                What do you think?
                There are three of them.
                2 are 8x16 about and one is 8x10

                  Sorry, I have no concept drawings, any concept lies lost somewhere in my head
                  I just get to see bit and pieces of it myself ( haha )


                  • #10
                    Ok well the holes under the bbq, are for lights, and maybe some dry ice for
                    All hallows eve.
                    I think that would look cool.
                    But we will see they may just be holes

                      The Dome

                      Learning how to use the saw as I go.
                      The next oven I build will be better. hahahahahahaha
                      any way here are some new photos
                      Thanks for all the help so far.

                        moving up

                        It's satisfying seeing the dome go up, isn't it? Looking good so far.

                        For some reason with the -la at the end of your name I imagined a smaller person than the one in your saw image!

                        Wonder why you wrapped your oven floor with a cargo strap? I won't hold my breath waiting for an explanation this time

                          Cargo strap

                          Well Leepin, is a nic name from when I was skydiving, and l a, are my initials.
                          silly names that stick. haha
                          the cargo strap was so nuthing moved when I sanded the floor bricks,
                          and I just left it there, did not seem to be in the way,
                          hope this get your way in a timely maner. haha



                          • #14
                            very timely

                            strong work, the cargo strap is a nice bit of ingenuity, I would imagine you have now a perfectly level cooking surface. Keep sending progress photos, I'm interested to see your BBQ progress especially.
