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

Hello,

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.

  • Mosaic Question

    I have just finished my brick pizza oven. Thank you all for the postings. They have been extremely beneficial in my constructing my oven.

    Three layers of insulation is complete and cured (I think). My question is on putting the final layer as a 3/4" x 3/4" mosaic tile on the dome. Has anyone tried it? Is it recommended or are there any known issues with it vs. Stucco.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    I have also documented construction steps on my blog.

    Thanks in advance.
    Regards.

    I have seen beautiful mozaic instead of stucco on commercial ovens imported from Naples. I think it probably the best way to get a waterproof skin without adding unneccessary weight.

    Go for it, add in mirror, rogue colors and shapes

      Like you I have admired the mosic oven on the forno home page, but the minister for war and finance vetoed that.
      Its pretty easy to do...basically tiling really. Break up you tiles and glue them on with tile glue which I might add is cement based ( yes you can get rubber types you don't want them). when the items covered you fill the gapes in the tiles with tile grout. you don't have to use the white grout either there coloured types as well. grout sealer is also avaliable which will mean you can make your ovens pretty waterproof.
      I have attached a pic of a mosic under the little pot belly stove on the back deck at home

        Re: Mosaic Question

        It is important to seal the surface of the stucco with a tile primer before glueing on the tiles. I used to use a cement based adhesive, but now use an outdoor acrylic adhesive because I think it has more elasticity. Heat on the adhesive is not really an issue provided the area to be tiled is all insulated well.
