Pizza oven and outdoor kitchen - 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!

  • Pizza oven and outdoor kitchen

    Mike, beautiful layout! I can feel the love that your kitchen exudes.

    Where did you buy your oven?

    I noticed that the Flue pipe for the oven looked like a black Single wall. Is that correct?

    If so, is that what is spec'd by the manufacturer?

      The Flue is a single wall, the instuctions that came with the oven were not clear. I contacted the manufacturer and was told that for an outdoor oven single wall heavy flue was fine. Interior construction requirement varied by building code.
      I used heavy single wall flue rapped in 4" of ceramic blanket. The oven is sitting on 4" ceramic board and rapped in two layers of 4' ceramic blanket then the remaining void in the attic was filled with vermiculite. At full temp the oven exterior walls stay cool to the touch.
      My oven is from caminetti bertucci of Italy. I bought it while on vacation and had it shipped home. What started out as a way to save some money by buying the oven in italy and shipping it home turned into a complete backyard remodel. But, I have to say it was worth it. I use my outdoor kitchen almost daily. See link below


      What type of oven do you have? What type of construction did you use?

        I built my oven about 4 yrs ago. It is an Allen Scott Design.

        Since then, I have built 5 others for friends.

        You can see my work on this forum under Pompeii Oven Construction in the thread, 'New Pompeii Started'.

        I too spend a lot of time in my outdoor kitchen. Unfortunately, I just sold my house and will not get an opportunnity to build my new Outdoor kitchen for about a year.

        Until then, I will just have hang out with my freinds and their kitchens.
