Installing Indoors - 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!

  • Installing Indoors

    I bought a Forno Bravo Oven a few years back. It was almost finished then the reality of moving to Maine set in. I covered it up never fired it because I knew it was coming with us and did not want to expose it to possibly weakening it with heat/cool cycles before the move. We now have a spot for it and this season we're going to have some riggers move it inside the new building. I have some questions about installing the flue for this oven and making sure the installation is safe. I can't find any information on the flue requirements for the Forno Bravo 120. Can anybody help me with this? TIA

    I'll post a simple diagram of what I'm thinking about to further clarify the installation. I should add that the other flue is for an antique wood range so there are two flues shown. Does this set up look ok?

      Hi Sailfish
      is there a reason (maybe asthetic reasons) why you would not take the flue straight up from the oven and through the roof as per your other flue?
      I would take it directly up from the oven rather than put in 2 bends that will adversely affect the draw of the flue ESPECIALLY since it is indoors.
      However, if a critical roofing beam is in the way, the it is a different matter.
      I would hope that it is an 8" for a 42" oven, nothing less will put smoke out the front of your oven which is not ideal in an inside application.
      The same setup with a double walled (and insulated between them) flue shoud do the trick.

      I would also look at the reinforcement of the floor to withstand the weight of the oven but I guess that you have already done your homework on this.


      Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

      The more I learn, the more I realise how little I know

        Hey Sailfish,

        We have installation guides for all of our ovens, and they will be really helpful for your installation -- including setbacks from combustibles and venting requirements. In general, for a 120cm oven, you should use 8" UL103HT Listed pipe. FB sells DuraTech for your oven. It includes an anchor plate, spark arrestor, various lengths of pipe and 30 deg angle sets for routing the pipe up the right location in your walls.

        If you have any questions, or need help finding the right installation guide (or the DuraTech installation guide), send us an email at info at fornobravo dot com.
