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!

  • Foundation / Stand - Raised deck floor

    I will be installing a Casa2G at the end of my deck which is 32" above ground level and have the following questions:

    1. Should I put footings at ground level rather than a slab, since wood will not be stored there?

    2. What suggestion for use at the deck floor level to support wood storage?

    3. What suggestions for non-combustable hearth extension in front of oven to cover wood deck?

      1. Should I put footings at ground level rather than a slab, since wood will not be stored there?
      Either way will work. Is frost heave a problem in Atlanta? If so, the slab on well-drained crushed rock may be easier than digging below frost line.
      2. What suggestion for use at the deck floor level to support wood storage?
      I just put in a pressure treated deck material floor at ground level on my oven.
      3. What suggestions for non-combustible hearth extension in front of oven to cover wood deck?
      This partly depends on whether you're running it past the building inspector. I'd think that for practical purposes a layer of pavers laid directly on the deck would work, but an inspector may call for a slab cantelevered out from the masonry structure as would be done in a masonry fireplace.

        I have a similar situation and I plan on putting footings at ground level and building the stand up to my concrete deck level which is about 5 feet higher.
