Side by side brick ovens - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

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.

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.

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!

  • Side by side brick ovens

    I just posted a series of photos of a double brick oven we saw this
    weekend in Genova. They used one side for vegetables and the other
    for pizza (although being Genovese they called it Focaccia), which
    allows them to cook different foods at different temperatures at the
    same time. The restaurant was a tourist trap, but the ovens are
    excellent. Nice tilework. Please try to ignore my bad photography.

    This poses an interesting question. Will anyone ever build a double
    oven in their backyard? Think about how much flexibility it would
    give you for cooking!

    Here is the link.

    May build double ovens

    You asked whether anyone might build a double oven in the yard. Believe it or not, we are seriously considering it at this time.

    I have been following brick oven construction for years, but have bought into James' analysis of round vs oblong ovens: the former is better for daily roasting and the latter is better for serious baking of large quantities. So were may make accomodations for both, in order the have the best of both worlds.

    We may be chewing off way too much...
