Newbie
 
We moved into our new house complete with a Forno Bravo pizza oven.
The oven was installed more than a year ago and has been sitting there looking brand new - never fired.

Would someone point me in the right direction on this forum where I can read up on the proper curing process so we can get the oven up to temperature? Links welcome! I did a search and little showed up - I assume I am using the wrong search words.

Also - the fact that the oven has been dry for over a year, does that factor into the cure process or does it need the increasing heat to truly drive out the moisture?

Thanks for any help - can't wait to move onto the recipes part of this forum!

If in doubt, go thru the curing process:

That's what I thought - thanks for the link.

Why did the previous owners never fire it up?

I wasn't clear - we are the original owners. We built the house and during construction we had the pizza oven from Forno Bravo installed as per the plans.

Installing the oven was relatively early in the construction so that it would be incorporated into the house facing outward toward our outdoor kitchen. Now that we have finished the house and moved in, we are ready to 'cure' it and use it.

But before I do - I thought best to check with 'experts' on this site for experience so I can avoid Newbie mistakes.
