WFO Inside or Outside: which will get more use? - 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!

  • WFO Inside or Outside: which will get more use?

    We have just started the process of designing our next home. The debate is whether to build a WFO in the kitchen or put it outside as part of a grill/outdoor kitchen build. We live in Durham, NC (USA) and the question becomes will I/we us the WFO more if it is in the house or outside. My concern regarding an interior build is that it will make the house way too hot to use the oven in the summertime which essentially runs April till mid-October. However, an outside build will require us dodging the local flying vampires 'aka mosquitoes' from June till October.

    If you have done a WFO inside your house, does it generate a lot of heat outside the oven? I cant seem to find any specs on heat loss on FB modular ovens in the interior setting. Do you think you use the oven more or less because the WFO is integrated into your regular kitchen vs in an outside kitchen?
