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.

  • Angle meter

    Hi all,
    Just following a recommendation from a forum subscriber.

    I'm using this Angle Meter, borrowed from my next door neighbor (and pretty much ruined by now) to check my brick angles as I place them. I've been working without shims, except for the occasional time when I tamp the bricks down too far while setting them, then I use the shim as a wedge to boost it back up again.

    By this method, at least so far, I'm able to hand butter the bricks with mortar and do away with a grout bag. It works really well.

    I have no idea where to buy something like this. My neighbor can't remember where he bought it. Try Google????
    Everyone makes mistakes. The trick is to make mistakes when nobody is looking.

      Re: Angle meter

      I was a carpenter for over 10 years and I never saw one of these before.

      Nifty gadget!

      Would of been handy to have for carpentry and oven building!

      Here are a couple links to purchase one.

        Also called a goniometer at least in medical practice.

            Re: Angle meter

            Just a note. I've used Starrett measuring tools for years, and they are among the best and most accurate out there. Don't have the angle gauge, though I probably should, but I do have a two foot and four foot level from them, plus a miter square, a tiny box square and some other stuff. Highly recommended.

                    Inclinometer - not sure about medical applications, although sounds like there could be some.

                    Can be had on eBay here for &#163;15-&#163;25 depending on the version.
