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 do I install oven outside with door through a wall so it opens inside the house?

    We are doing a remodel, and I'd like to install a pizza oven, something like the Casa2G 32" oven. We have an outside wall near the kitchen, so I'd like to mount the oven on the outside. Has anyone done an installation like that? How is the door tunnel "extended" and placed through the wall so the actual oven stays outside and the chimney has room to clear the outside wall of the house? Does anyone have an ideas how to do an installation like this? Many thanks!

    Here's one construction project similar to what you want to accomplish:

      Re: How do I install oven outside with door through a wall so it opens inside the hou

      There are two issues with an oven attached to, or in, a house. One is that the oven has to conform to building code, usually the code for masonry fireplaces, which means serious footers, a hearth in front of the oven, clearance to combustibles, and so forth. The other is that you need to vent the oven two feet above anything within ten feet, which usually means a long chimney. You may also have to supply an air intake, depending on how airtight your house is. The difficulty/expense of all of this depends on the flexibility and reasonableness of your building department, which varies by jurisdiction.

      Good luck with your project.

        Many thanks for the replies. I was hoping to build a platform outside the house on knee-braces that should be able to support the 6-700 lbs of the oven, run the chimney up along the side of the house so it clears the house, and make an opening in the existing wall for the door of the oven. It seems that the pre-made Forno Bravo ovens such as the Toscana or Casa2G series (32" ovens) have rather short "tunnels" that lead from the door into the oven. I would have to extent that "tunnel" at least 8-10" so it could penetrate the existing wall. Of course I would plan on building brick work around and below this "tunnel" to maintain a fire safe zone, but how would that longer "tunnel" from the door into the oven affect the oven's function?
        Thanks, Al
