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.

  • Wood Rack - Homemade for 1/2 cord

    I had a 1/2 cord of Red Oak delivered over last weekend. $150USD delivered and stacked. In order to store the wood near the WFO I needed to put it along the house without a lot of space. Quick trip to HD for some basic chain link fence parts put together in a slightly unusual way and a 8' x 4' x 18" wood rack was born. worked like a charm.

      Thanks, Les. Stacking wood brings back fond memories of my winters as a child outside Chicago. The memories are fond, hated it as a kid.

          Hey Greg, thanks for sharing....I've been racking my brain on what to use for the wood that does not fit under my oven or that still needs split. The scrap lumber rack that I banged together looks like crap and my wife is not happy...this is a clean looking easy solution.

            yea, thanks for this. It looks great. I'm a big fan of repurposing plumbing pipe which I think would work, too, but I imagine fence parts are cheaper? I'm definitely going to use this idea. I'm obsessed with a wall-o-firewood as decor but I was having a hard time coming up with a quick and easy way to get it to stay upright that would stand the weather and look reasonably decent. This will be perfect as a wall for my outdoor room and I can give it a tin roof to match my oven enclosure. Right now my wood is all stacked on my patio where my new prep tables need to go!

              Thanks to all. It went together really easy with a electric grinder to cut the pipe. Maybe 20 minutes and $50. I used two cross brackets on each upright and three across the bottom. What you can't see is the legs. I used a sledge to drive pipes into the ground until they wouldn't go down any father. They all went in different lengths. then I cut them off at the same height and added the fence brackets. Anchored to the ground like that, this thing won't tip over any time soon and you get to work with a sludge hammer....who doesn't like that?

                If you live in an area that has termites or carpenter ants, it is recommended that your wood shed not be located immediately next to your house.

                  I am planning to use chain link fence parts for a large awning. Great stuff.

                  Now all you need are a bunch of metal roofing pieces, and you can keep the rain off it as well!
                  This may not be my last wood oven...

                    I think we get about 1/2 inch of rain per year.....I thought about a roof but I think i'll pass
