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.

    I'm with Mick here. You can get the fire and cooking done with no problem but it will be a nasty job to do it. Smoke in your eyes is not a fun thing...

        Re: do i need a chimney

        A "beaver tail" design would allow you to put the chimney entrance at the front of the oven and then curve the flue back over the top of the dome and up from the back;

        [ ] <----chimney at the back
        [ ]___
        [___ )_
        (______ <----oven entrance
        oven floor

        The advantage being that you maintain the pompeii design/thermal heat retention (keep heat in the oven where it belongs) and not up and out the chimney which would occur if you put the chimney entrance at the back. Do some research and you'll find a better description of what I am talking about.
