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.

  • Pompeii Oven Wiki site

    After complaining about this for a while, I took the bull by the horns and started a wiki to be a repository for Pompeii knowledge. I have just started loading up some blank pages for sections, really just placeholders

    I think this would be a great asset for the community and a see it as a complement to the forums. Ideally, we could just update the FB plans with all the knowledge that is passed around here, but that's probably not practical.

    Building this is not something I can do, or would want to do by myself. If it's going to take off, it will take a number of participants.

    The link to the wiki is here: Main Page - PompeiiOvenWiki

    If you are interested in participating in getting it set up, PM me with your email address and I will add you as a member.

    Edit: I found a different host that looks better doesnt appear to have the same limits on members and storage.

            I really like the contributions you've made to this website, your dome spreadsheet calculator and your beautiful build. I also commend you on your patience. You have inspired me. It is people like you that make this website so GREAT.

            I would like to participate in your Wiki effort, but will refrain for the moment until I have something more tangible to offer than my simple anecdotes...but I'm thinking.

            Thank you,

              I saw your post last night suggesting a wiki, I was going to get home tonight and suggest Tiki Wiki, Im all over that particular wiki software like a rash, it does change over time but the basics stay the same, its what I have used in the past.

                Great start! We need to get some of the pros to start filling the pages. It would probably help if you made a menu with some basic categories to give people a starting point. I'm looking forward to seeing how this progresses.
