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.

  • Ash Hook - any homemade designs?

    Anyone using an ash hook in their oven like this one?

    I've been using an old 2x4 to move the coals around, and truth be told - it works just fine. But I have been reading the "Art of Wood Fired Cooking" and it talks about an ash hook to move coals, and I got curious.

    I thought I might weld something up for use in my oven - but thought there may be designs here on the forum that I could use as a starter.

    Anyone build/use such a tool?

    I use this. I bent it a tad beyond vertical so I can rake against the back wall.

      FB has sold an ash rake which is a variant of both.

        I bought a pooper scooper from Petco. Replaced the handle with a longer piece of EMT pipe - works greet.

          Made from 3 mm aluminum so it will not damage the hearth brick, but strong enough to push a log around. Sorry it ain't pretty but it works. One thing I discovered about making tools is the handles start off to long and all of mine have been shortened a couple ins at a time till they feel right
