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.

  • Oven wood storage...

    Another post made me think about this tip:

    When storing wood under your oven or fireplace, make sure you have an aggressive slope so that any storm water drains away from your wood and avoids any puddling.

    XJ, that's good thinking. Too late for me... maybe I can build a "rack" to keep the wood off of the slab.

    To also help, after cooking and the oven has cooled a little I've started pushing coals and embers to one side and put a load of wood on the other and let it "cure" in the heat for the next time I start a fire. That way, at least I have good dry wood to start off.....

      Mark, if you've got a puddle you can always just tile your wood storage area and make it drain out.

        My drainage problem was created when i put in the wall supports for my granite countertop. The slab drained well but the walls were perpendicular to the slope. When it storms, I get a puddle backup at each wall (dam).

        Tip #2 Put drain holes at the base of walls, counter supports, etc that run perpendicular to the slope of your terrace/patio.....
