Primavera 70 Just Arrived - 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!

  • Primavera 70 Just Arrived

    At long last, my Primavera 70 was deliverd today. I know FB says the oven can stay out in the elements all year round, so long as you don't let water get inside. My oven arrived without a door (FB is shipping one to me), and the FB person who helped me said I could just cover the oven with a tarp to keep out rain until the door arrives. She added that she keeps hers covered with a tarp. So my question is, even with the door in place, do you folks keep your WFOs covered when not in use? Thanks in advance!

    I have a roof on mine so no tarp required. I am sure others will chime in on this.

    Welcome to the party!!!

      Ya have to keep the oven dry, just by placing the door there wont stop the water soaking into the oven.

        I keep my primavera covered.....you should also, sideways rain will get in. I bought a cover intended for a small patio furniture set, as recommended by someone here. It really should come with the oven to be honest.

          The problem with a cover or tarp is that it also holds moisture in. A roof over the oven is really the best solution so moisture can escape with air movement, but a roof means effort and expense as well as creating a problem where the flue needs to penetrate the roof. My oven is out in the weather and after heavy tropical rain for weeks the inside of the door starts to grow some mould. Probably should leave the door off so the inside can breathe. A few prolonged fires easily restores normal function.
