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

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.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

  • Ir thermometer

    Hi All,
    Just wanted to share some info, I went online yesterday and was surprised to find SEARS.COM has quite a few IR thermometers. I bought model # 81998,
    Up too 1400 degrees,(they had it at the store for local pickup) has laser aiming and has a k input and comes with a probe that could be built into the oven, Though Im not sure its long enough or sturdy enough. I will have to do some more reading. Price was 89.99 plus a 9v battery. Testing around the house has been fun, I found out my favorite temperature for a cracklin cold Diet Coke was 39 degrees.

    my question is can someone recommend where to purchase a proper probe, and where should it be located in the oven itself ?

    Once again thanks to all for your help in my project as it has saved me from several Faux Paus,,,, (i think thats how you spell it )

    Sincerely
    Mark

    Mark,

    Have a look at Omega.com for probes. For pizza making, it's common to place a single probe in the middle of the hearth, about one inch from the cooking surface. This will require some precise drilling from below on your part. If you use two probes, the second one should be drilled from above into the dome material (again, about one inch from the interior surface) and at about the two o'clock position, mid-dome.
