What NOT to do when building the wall - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community

New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

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.

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.

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.

  • What NOT to do when building the wall

    Never place anything smaller than the block cavity hole on the edge of an unfilled cavity unless you have someone handy who has really long and skinny arms who can reach down and retrieve it.

    Good bye, trusty tape measure. You have served me well.

    Unless it was a fat-max..then you should knock a hole through the cell and get it.

      That just means that you are not drinking enough beer. Those cells should be full of empties.

        Tape measures are the best tool ever invented to fish out tape measures.That's why they put that thing that looks like a belt clip on them.Now if they would just put a GPS location device on them.

          Get yourself a good rare earth magnet on a long pole or cord and retrieve it.
          I do this all the time, in fact some automotive spare parts outlets sell them on telescopic wands.
          You will need to attach it to the metal end tang but a good magnet should attract the metal tape through a plastic body.
          Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!
