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!

  • How to vent indoor oven?

    Can anyone advise me of the specifics required to vent the oven so it doesn't smoke up the house.We anticipate installing it in the kitchen as part of our major house remodel. Is stainless steel chimney pipe required ? Is an exhaust fan required and if so is that a rootop installation? Any recommendations on what type/brand of exhaust fan if one is required? Any sense of materials costs? We have a single story house with a low pitch roof so chimney height would be about 20 ft.

    If I had natural gas, I wouldn't even consider wood fired. That completely removes the smoke issue from the picture.

    If no NG is available, and exhaust fan is probably required. Your local Building Department will have the final say, so I would talk to them first.

      I visited a newly opened cafe in Sac that features a wood fired oven. They used an exaust fan similar to ones I've seen over grills and french friers in restaurants. When I asked the pizza cook about it, he said that is what the building department required. Again, better chat them up. But I think it is a great idea. I would love to have one in my kitchen. I kinda have room but the stove would have to go. And because I'm married, I had to settle for the back yard or garage.

        Dusty,
        Me too. 6 grand plush shipping and installation me give up the plan. If I was building a house, it might be different, but retro-fitting an oven would be expensive.
