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.

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.

  • keeping my oven dry

    I'm going to install my oven within some outside stone steps of my old stone house, but I'm concerned about the oven being damp.

    I don't really want to encapsulate the whole thing in a sort of waterproof bubble as I'm worried about condensation, though I may be wrong - any ideas on this?

    Re: keeping my oven dry

    Are you worried about wetness during the build, or after it's assembled?

    I don't think you have to concern yourself with condensation issues during the build--you'll be soaking bricks and spraying it down to get a nice, slow cure, anyway.

    After the dome is built, you'll be insulating and coming up with some weatherproofing solution (be that enclosure or igloo of some variety) and driving out the moisture slowly through the curing process. Moisture is inevitable during the build; just take care to dry the oven out properly and you'll be just fine.

      Yes, I'm worried about dampness after the construction as the oven is going to be built inside a large block of basically (and ironically!) dry stone walling (see attachments above)... I've never found these to be dry within!

        The attachments didn't work for me for some reason, so I can't see the details you tried to post. Try again, perhaps? Sounds like an intriguing location, and I'd love to see what you mean!
