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!

  • Dismantle and Move Modular Oven

    I need to move my oven due to flue position and neighbours

    It is a modular oven with a ceramic fibre insulation, chicken wire and 2 coat sand cement mortar over the top
    when you tap it you can hear the hollow layer between mortar and modular kit

    The base of the kit was cited on a metal / concrete base but was not stuck down, it's own weight held it in place

    Has anyone done this or does anyone have any advice ?

    I am thinking once the mortar layer is off then the fibre insulation comes off revealing the original kit for me to then move it

    Any help it advice would be appreciated

    How far are you moving it...across the yard or across the town??? If across the yard see if you cant rent a fork lift that is capable of moving it to a new location. Do the whole thing in one piece.

      I think Faith has it. It sounds like the base is not attached so you should have one module including the base/hearth/oven including insulation that should move without damage. Just have to have the site where it is to go ready to accept it and you should be right.

      No chance of modifying the flue so it discharges higher or in a different direction? Pity to have to move it once it is finished.

        I can't forklift it as I won't be able to get one in the back garden.

        Once the cement top coat is off the modular kit, which is in 6 prices on the dome and 5 on the base should come apart easy and it was not fixed except but it's own weight and gravity

        It is a shame to move it but in hindsight I did not take into account neighbours properly

          A crane might be an alternative. Difficult not knowing your situation but it is a pity to dismantle it.

            An answer to Faith's question might help with an idea! Some pics of the oven might help also. Everybody should know this trick. The rollers in the pic could have been placed on runners, which woud have made it even easier than trying to roll a load across soft turf.



            But also, we have an old historic church in our neighborhood that was moved about 100 yards on logs in the same manner to make way for a highway. That was a little before my time . My dad said that they used logging mules and oxen for the power source.

            Your oven doesn't weigh any where in the neighborhood of a large church.
