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:

    Re: Hello

    Greetings, I'm in the process of building a 36" pompeii in my small city yard, the biggest decision for me was where to put it and how big could it be.

    If you haven't already read the plans, look here:

    Brick Oven Plans | Build an Italian Brick Oven

    This is a great overview of what's involved, also take a look at some of the oven construction threads, and take advantage of the forum "search" function, you're sure to have lots of decisions to make along the way, and you'll see how each oven is unique.

    I never would have attempted this without the forum and all of the great people here who are ready to share what they have learned,

    good luck,

      In addition to the plans, there are a few builders in your area that should be able to steer you in the right direction for material. If you want to avoid all the shopping, James is offering pretty much all you need in one package.


      Check out my pictures here:

        Re: Hello

        Having recently sourced out materials in the Phoenix area for my oven, I can tell you that James' kit price is *extremely* competitive. I would have gone that route had it been available when I was building. If you'd like I'm happy to share the local resources I found. I concentrated on east valley suppliers, but bought some of my materials from Phoenix sources that wouldn't be too far from you.
