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.

  • fire board options

    Okay - a bit of a random question but I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm building a little hibachi / yakitori grill that's about 24" by 10". Its a steel frame with (right now) tiles set in the sides.

    I was asuming that the tiles wouldn't hold up (although they are fairly heavy floor tiles) to the heat of the charcoal that's going to burn inside it. I was thinking of lining/backing the tiles with something like fireboard.

    Any suggestions? I need something fairly cheap thats no more then 10mm thick if possible. Again - the heat isn't direct but I would like it to last a while. Do you think the tiles would hold up?

    I'd recommend firebrick splits, but they are 25mm thick, and might be hard to source in the UK. You could try what we call quarry tile, hard dense terra cotta tiles that are used for commercial kitchen floors. They are cheap, and measure what would be 150 square by 10mm thick

      In the UK I also remember heater bricks being used.

        Thanks for this - but I need something fairly thin as I mentioned. I'll look for some quary tiles and see how that works.

        Do you think the floor tiles would hold up to a fair heat without cracking? Do I need a second layer at all anyways?

          I don't know. It's not what they are designed for. In any event they are cheap enough that they are readily replaceable if they do crack.
