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!

Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena


For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.


If the link doesn't work, simply go to You Tube and type Forno Bravo Channel. The video title is How to Set your Forno Bravo Oven Dome Pieces.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

    should the floor firebricks be layed flat or on the side? what is the difference?

    Re: floor bricks

    A 2.25" brick layed flat will take less time to heat up to a given temperature while a 4.5" thick brick set on end will take longer to heat up but yield a higher volume of stored heat
    up over a longer period of time. How deep you design your floor will affect the amount of wood you must buy and the time it takes to heat up your oven to your prescribed operating temperature.

      Is it twice as much to heat up bricks laid on their side: time- or wood-wise?

        Re: floor bricks

        I don't know if there is data to support this. Besides, fully saturating a firebrick is different than surface-heating. You would need a thermocouple embedded in the underside of both styles of floor and make a set of general assumptions regarding brick alumina content, wood type and size of fire, ambient temp, etc to get that comparative data. As in all things, your mileage may vary.
