premio2g - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

    Hi I have been reading for a long long time, and due to time I would like to get a modular oven. My wife would like to cook on the weekend massive amounts of food to feed everyone we know at our lake house. She wants to be able to cook thanksgiving about 6 times a year and pizza every other weekend. Can any one tell me what you think of the premio 2g 44", 1) will it work for what she wants it for. 2) Are there any pictures of one being installed. 3) If I added more fiber mat will this be a benefit. I appreciate your time thank you.

    Hey daytripper,

    I'll jump in. I think a 44" Premio2G is a great choice for serious backyard cooking. It is big and heavy, so you have the space you need for a huge amount of cooking and hte heat retention is excellent.

    You can download the installation guide from FB.com here.


    The manual provides photos and graphics of the installation process. We also have some fun eBooks on wood-fired cooking. You can download those for free from the FB.com store

    Finally, the Premio2G comes with 4" of dome insulation and 3" of floor insulation -- which is a lot. You should be good with that.

      Thank you james How much larger is the 44 inch compared to the 40 inch? How big of a bird fits the oven? I know that this may sound silly but I do not know anything about this oven.

          Looks like the Premio2G110, which is 42x52, is the same size as the Casa110, which I have.

          Mine holds a very large bird, over 20 lbs, just fine. The door height is the only limiting factor - there would be room for more than one 20+ lb bird on the inside. The door on the Premio2G110 is 16" high, per the specs; I don't think any turkey you are likely to eat would have any trouble clearing that door. (Any bird too big to fit through that door would probably be eating you.) You could remove the backbone and flatten it out, which would reduce the height (not a bad idea in any event - it's a great way to do a turkey).

          My oven handles 15 - 20 lbs of bread per bake, which should feed everyone you know (if not, do two bakes, which works fine in my oven and would do even better in the Premio, which has more insulation and a thicker casting, and, thus, greater thermal mass). Unless you're a pro, you'll never come close to maxing out on pizza capacity; you can't make them fast enough to get more than 1 or 2 in at once. They cook in a minute or two and it takes that long for most of us to build them. A 44" oven should handle all the pizza two or three good amateurs can build.

          Dave Konstantin posted a great gallery of his build of a Casa110 like mine on facebook. Go to Forno Bravo DC | Facebook and look for his gallery identified with Forno Bravo DC.

          Good luck,

              Did you get your Premio 2G yet? My 2G110 arrives next Monday. I have finished the hearth and will start assembly next weekend.
