32" Forno Bravo
 
We will be ready to fire-up for the 1st time in one week. Believe you me, we are very excited.

Our question is to how to fire-up for the 1st time and the kind of wood we should use. Here in Texas, we have plenty of mesquite. It burns really hot and we wonder if anyone uses this wood.

Surely we'll have more questions to come...thanks so much for your help...W&C

mesquite now there is a thought, if it burns hot enough it would give a really nice flavor to the pie. I will have to try it.

I used to burn mesquite when we lived in San Antonio, TX. It has a pleasant ambiance and burns almost as hot/long as oak.

Fredricksburg is one of my favorite areas in TX. That big rock is a lot of fun to ramble on :)

I'm close to being ready to fire my 32" Casa 2G. The curing process says to heat the oven at varying temps and takes about 5 days. Do you need to to the curing all at once or can you do in several stages. ie: over 2-3 weekends?

FiredupinNH, unless there is something different in the instructions coming with your oven, follow the instructions in the link below. If your instructions differ, follow the specific advice from your manufacturer, call manufacturer if you are not sure. It DOES matter. :)
