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.

  • Knocking on heaven's door...

    With the oven curing i have had a go at cutting out a door from an old piece of steel i had laying around, its around 7mm thick.

    See images here... still working on the handles;

    I really like the look of this material... but when cooking with the door closed (bread / roasts etc) does this door need vents holes in it i wonder? How will the fire breathe with no holes or will it suck enough in through the gaps?

    regards

    You'll want some decent sized vent holes and maybe even some way to close them to control the fire. At least that is what I am planning to do. I haven't built my door yet (still using a piece of cement board) and I have to prop it open or remove it altogether to keep a small roasting fire alive.

      7mm!!? At least it will stop your wife from taking a peak inside the oven when the door is in place.....

        No holes in your door if you're baking or stabilizing your oven, its counter productive. Try to seal the gaps around your door if you plan on cooking for multiplies days.
