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!

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.

  • building oven on trailer

    I am putting my new Casa2G oven together on a trailer with plenty of capacity. I need to raise the level of the foundation on which the oven will be built in a way that keeps it from moving around too much when moving. I am considering 6x6's on the trailer bed under the insulated oven foundation and floor. Any suggestions/ideas on this or in general?

    There are threads concerning trailering these ovens, do a search.

    Myself, I'd take it to a steel fabricator and have him make a custom base with supports built-in. Also you need enough suspension to handle the weight of the oven when yo hit a pot hole. HTH

    I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.

      I did a few searches but couldn't find the answer, what do you think will hold the thing together?

        My mobile sits in a steel cradle which in turn sits on a wooden trolley on 6 wheels. The steel cradle is secured to the trailer with chains and turnbuckles. Works for me, but my oven is less than 200kg. I pinched the weight from everywhere possible.

          Re: building oven on trailer

          There's a local company here in Sacramento that has a FB WFO on a trailer. I talked with him at a local farmer's market - and he told me that the guy who built his trailer is in Denver (I think). It rotates 90 Degrees so he can cook from the side. It's got quite a few miles on it - and the roads in Norther California stink.

          Here is his oven on a trailer:

          The owner, Michael Johnson, was apparently a Chef at the FB Expo 2011.

            I can't figure out how to hold the segments together safely

              Neither could I, that's why I cast it in one piece.

                I think a steel banding machine would hold the segments together safely and strong but i just can't figure out how to secure my oven to the trailer?????????
