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.

  • Multiple layers of insulation board

    So, I ordered eight pieces of 2" board (InsBlock 19) and received sixteen pieces of 1" instead (w/o advanced notice so I don't know if it was an inventory mistake or if they intentionally sent me replacement for out-of-stock 2" without notifying me). Northwest Ironworks provides several packages and this is clearly one of their packages (16x1", 10x1.5", 8x2", 5x3").

    Anyway, so now I'm thinking about layering multiple 1" boards to make my hearth insulation and I'm trying to anticipate any problems that might result. Does anyone think I will have trouble with the boards sliding around against one another in a way that will make it difficult for me to hold things together cleanly during the construction process?

    Or is this just not a problem at all? Mostly I'm miffed they didn't send me what I asked for.


    [CLARIFICATION: I contacted NW Ironworks. They said the shipment was not an error, that their 2" is actually 1" glued together and their 3" is 1.5" glued together. I'll have to check when I get home to see if it is actually "glued together", I don't recall at the moment.]

    It won't be a problem. With the amount of weight sitting on it, it's going nowhere.

    Check out my pictures here:

      Multiple layers offers an opportunity for improvement.

      Lay each layer on top of each other but rotated at 90 degrees. This gives a huge reduction in 'straight-through' joints resulting in slightly better insulation.

      Sorry for not posting this reply sooner.
