Very cool Artigiano installation - 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!

  • Very cool Artigiano installation

    Now this is a cool oven. What I think is particularly notable is not the great color, or even the inspirational bar (or even the vineyard views) -- I like the open hood look. The vent is hidden within the hood, and the entire front of the oven and the landing is open. That's a nice design choice.

    Take a look.

      Interesting design variant. I like the wide open landing. I presume that the front above the door and below the hood will get sooty over time?

      The one other potential issue I can imagine is the effect of wind on the oven. Do you suppose it has a short tunnel into the dome?

      As windy as it is here, I was thinking that the side walls around the flue arches would probably help block the wind from blowing into the dome from some directions?

        Very interesting design. Obviously quite new as was noted there is no soot above the entrance.

        Two things I don't understand: They seem to have the grass etc. finished and mowed up to the serving bar yet the step down or up into the oven work area appears to have the potential as a real ankle turner and the fall (out of view in the photo) has the potential for high drama.

        And second, am I seeing river rock caged beneath the serving area/bartop? Everyone has their own idea of art, and that's as it should be. Personally, I think better use could be made of that "primo" storage area..just my opinion on that of course.

        However, the first concern (regarding the step up or down) is one of safety and I would have expected it to have been addressed while the oven was under construction. So on that I give the oven a thumbs down.
