Building new oven in screened lanai enclosure - 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!

  • Building new oven in screened lanai enclosure

    I have built a new 31' x 18' lanai. I have planes to install a new Forno Bravo Oven. Understanding the rules of : within 10 feet of a structor, chiminy need to extend 2 feet above the roof. My question to anybody out there, is:

    Is it a good Idea to build an oven in a Screened Lanai Enclosure? My plan was to construct it on the far side which would put it 12 feet away from the back of the house. I was planning to have the builder of the screened lania to construct a metel frame around of the chinimy the will be extending through the top of the enclosure.

    Any Advice would be greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks, with Warm Regards

    Even with vents, these things will produce a lot of smoke, particularly when starting the fire.

      I don't see a problem with it. People have indoor WFO in their homes and restaurants and they work just fine. There are specific building codes for just this thing so just have your builder follow the codes and have it pass inspection. If your lania is attached to your home then it will fall under normal building regulations.

        Something that would really help this situation would be a chimney exhaust fan. look into models by Exhausto which are designed to work in conjunction with metal flue systems. Also designing a door with a draft at the bottom to help encourage cold air to draw at the bottom and exhaust to exit through the chimney would also help.

          Thanks for all your comments.

          What I'm most concerned about is the temperature that the Chinimy produces. Does anyone know? If I have the usual jacated chinimy piping, what temperature should I expect?
