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: oven position

    Quick answer would be yes. as per the plans under tips and hints

    "When selecting the direction your oven will face, consider
    making sure that your opening does not face possible
    winds, which might disrupt your cooking and fire

        But in many cases you want your oven facing in a certain direction for aesthetics and for practical reasons. So if you have a constant wind problem you may need to balance those elements and reach a compromise.

            You could build a section of fence to screen the oven area if the winds become a problem.
