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!

  • quandary of a decision which Forno Bravo Oven

    Ok, first i'm a newb for ovens not pizza love it been doing it for most my life (longer than i care to think about it). I've lucked into a local dealer who will be able to get me a break on shipp since he orders a lot at a time. So now an oven is in my reach. The challenge is which one and I apologize if this is not the right location for the question. I will be retiring in about 5 years (I pray) and part of me says get the mobile oven (Andiamo 70) and take it with me otherwise when i leave its a sunk cost. The other part says if I go with the casa2g80 i can build it cheaper and would be slightly bigger. I can see the need for a single pie at a time. So has anybody here had a similar type dilemma? Thanks

    Yes, having the issues as I am also in pa and the shipping is quite expensive. I was thinking casa2g 80 or 90. OR building the Pompeii. I just sent the Pompeii plans to a mason that did work for me last year. Waiting to see what he will charge. It's the shipping charges that are keeping me from ordering the casa. I also thought about the mobile one but I think it will be too small for me.

      I posted a reply earlier don't know where it is. I too am in pa and had shipping quotes from 600- $1000. I just gave the plan to a mason. Should be cheaper to buy the materials here and build the Pompeii. I would like to have the casa 2g 80 or 90 if it weren't for the shipping cost. Also considered the Mobil unit but I would hate to spend the money on something I think would be too small.

        Who is the dealer that you are considering buying from ? Do you know if they have any ovens displayed? I'm still waiting to hear back from the contractor on the cost to build the Pompeii.
