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.

  • Water/weather proofing layer?

    I'm thinking of using an acrylic external render to water/weather proof my WFO. I plan on using the type of render you see on buildings and brick fences these days. This is the specific product:


    It's an incredibly tough acrylic/sand compound. It's premixed and easy to trowel.
    I've used it many times before on other applications, but just need to know if it would be suitable to use on a WFO?

    Sounds good particularly if it's got some flexibility. I think you should wait until you're 110% sure all moisture has been removed before you apply a waterproof coating, you don't want to lock any water in.

      Thanks for your reply! Yeah, that's the great thing about it, it's very tough and flexible, so I figured it would be perfect for the waterproofing layer. It can also be tinted just like paint and/or painted over with any other finish like Porter's Limewash or Dulux Tuscan Effects etc.
      I'll certainly wait until the hotface layer and insulating layer are completely dry before coating it with Multitex.

        Try also Flexipoint or Shieldcoat flexible pointing. They are probably the same but different manufacturers.
