Covered Deck implications with Primavera - 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!

  • Covered Deck implications with Primavera

    Hi Everyone,

    New to the site and excited to be hopefully purchasing a Forno Bravo unit. I'm most interested in the Primavera prebuilt. However my deck is covered and I'm curious as to the implications of using the Primavera unit in a covered deck. Is it necessary for me to have the chimney vent away from the deck? Any help would be appreciated.

    Yes, you'll have to vent the oven above the covering of the deck. The two issues are the heat of the exhaust gasses damaging or causing fire, but the greater risk is being poisoned by the exhaust gasses if they are not properly vented.

    Venting requirements will be based on both the height of the covering over the deck and the height of the roof on the structure it is attached to.
