Design idea for Pompei oven, Pantheon Rome - 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!

  • Design idea for Pompei oven, Pantheon Rome

    Go on google images search on Pantheon, Rome to catch my drift. Its potentially just a big pizza oven.

    Thought you could have pull out columns to reveal the oven door

    Get your white marble and chisels ready! I think having your soldier course set with niches with Catholic saints in them would be a particularly nice touch.

    Don't fall into the error of venting at the top of the dome, though.

      Since we're on the subject of dome geekery, the book "Brunelleschi's Dome" is the utterly amazing story of building Santa Maria del Fiore, aka, the Duomo in Florence, Italy circa 1430. It was and still is the largest self-supporting dome, 142 feet in diameter. Probably one of my most favorite books ever.
      Makes building a WFO look like legos.
