Forum Page Loading Response

Forum Members:

We have received feedback regarding recent issues with page loading response time. We believe the slow response issue stems from the analytics we added with the new Forum. We are in the process of reconfiguring those elements and, after an approximate 24-hour time period for the reconfiguration to run, we anticipate a return to normal page load times. Thank you for your patience!

Hello, Forno Bravo Community Forum members.

As many may have noticed already, the Community Forum site was briefly down today. While working on scheduled routine maintenance, we encountered an error when trying to add a software update. As the site is now back up and running, some of you may notice that some recent data has been misplaced from November 10th up to today. We are currently working on resolving the issue. The forum has full operational capabilities and we encourage all forum members to continue actively posting in the threads.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this issue may have caused you. The Forno Bravo family values each and every member of our community. If you have any issues or concerns, please feel free to let us know on our issues thread here:

  • Help needed in San Francisco area

    We are very excited to get some help with starting in this area. We are in the middle of a remodel and our architect had designed the kitchen to have our existing fireplace in it. He had it raised and said we could cook in it. Now we have been researching this further and realize we would like to have a high quality real oven. I am concerned we need an expert to build an efficient, safe, and effective wood burning oven. We want to maximize the space we have and we will use it regularly. Our current fireplace outside measurements are 56 inches wide, 40 inches deep. We are located in San Mateo California and would like to have someone contact us to help with designing and installing the best unit, as soon as possible.

    Thank you in advance for all your help.

    That gets tight at 40 inches deep - are you able to push our that dimension at all? Imagine a 36" oven, 3 inches of insulation in back(minimum reasonable, this is with high tech insulation) that's giving no room for a posterior enclusure, that leaves you one inch for the vent and landing. There are smaller ovens but you get pretty tight for fire in the oven cooking.
