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.

    Re: What Tools are Necessary?

    Blow pipe, 8 inch banjo peel, hook to pull pots and pans, brass brush, rake / hoe, ash bucket, some way to light up inside of oven, well insulated door, IR thermometer, cotton mop with ringer, blast door, hot pads or gloves, a nice set of cast iron pans and enameled cast pots, rib rack, beer can chicken rack, perforated pizza pans (optional), pizza peel, roll of parchment paper, proofing linens, proofing trays, pizza cutter

    several of my tools have aluminum handles, they are very cold to hold when it is below freezing. Wood is much nicer.
    That is it for now.

            Thanks! So the actual oven tools that one would need are the following? Peel, turning peel, rake, shovel, brush?

              Erd,
              I do find that I use the Blow pipe enough to justify having it; it does a great job of blowing of the last bit of ash from the floor. Mine is just an aluminum Cross Country ski pole with the handle removed and tip cut off. Others have used metal shaft golf clubs (head and handle cut).

              I do not have a shovel I use the banjo (turning) peel for removal of ash.

              Tools photo left to right
              Mop - BTW currently frozen stiff
              Brush
              Baguette Placer (think Peel that rolls bread off gently to the side)
              Rake
              Blow Pipe
              Pot Hook -- also works well to move wood around
              Banjo Peel (Turning Peel)
              Perf. Pizza Peel

                  I make bread and it is used to mop the floor prior to baking bread. It adds moisture to the oven giving the bread a better crust and texture (think holes).

                  It also takes some of the heat out of the floor to prevent the Bottom from burning.

                  And lastly it cleans the ash off the floor. Nice clean bread.
