Aha! The big gift crate exposed.
The nice thing about a modular wood-fired oven kit is that the weight is divided up making it easier to handle. It’s an advantage particularly if you have difficult terrain to consider. However, we absolutely love many of the preassembled ovens. We chose the Casa2G90 because the 36 inch oven base is going to be a great size for how we cook,bake and it will be very suitable for demos. It’s going to perform beautifully.
Ground fill will cover the lower foot or two of the base so it doesn’t look so massive, and stone will cover the block. We chose to build a center wall interior wall so the wood wouldn’t stray clear to the back and the benefit of added support for the oven floor is a plus.
The curing process involves gradual fires at very low levels and rises over the course of five days! At the end of the first day of curing you can bet a little celebration was in order!
The oven (our oven!)is likely to adopt a name soon- other than its birth name: Forno Bravo Casa 2G90- which is pretty cool, but after lighting up this beauty (which by the way we’re on day four of the five day curing process) it feels far too personal and alive not to have it’s very own name. I’d be curious to know how many others have named their ovens. DO TELL. I welcome oven blog happy friends to share your great wood-fired cooking adventures.
