  • Portable Forno Bravo in Boulder

    Here is a series of photos from The Fire Within, our dealer in Boulder, CO. They just did a 3-day Memorial Day weekend festival with a Premio100 oven (custom vent and landing) installed on a trailer. The oven cranked out 1200 pizzas in three days (a sustained rate of 30 per hour the whole time). I wish I had been there to see it. From all reports they were the best caterers at the festival and there was a line the whole time.

    I think the wood-fired catering marketing is going to take off.

    Fio, this comes right on the heels of your seeing the portable Forno Bravo in Update NY. Cool.

    Trailer Pizza


    This is very, very cool and appeals to my marketing sense. Is there any way I can get hold of some plans on the portable oven? Just so happens a friend of mine is in the trailer business. Of course, I'd need an oven, too.

      I could see this as the perfect extension to your bakery. Pizza, focaccia and hearth bread where you want it; when you want it. Just-in-time pizza. I get the sense that you would be good at it -- and it would definitely get you out of the house.

      Joseph said that experience event caterers were coming up to him saying that they've been doing this for 15+ years, and that the wood-fired oven was the best thing they've seen in years. The Fire Within is close to fully booked for the near-term, and they have a good list of events contacting them.

      We are still deciding how we are going to handle the plans for the trailer -- and the things you need to do to keep the oven attached to the trailer, the dome structurally secure, etc. We can talk off-line about that.

      If anyone is thinking about a trailer oven, you can contact me directly.

      Pretty cool.....

        More Mobile Forno Bravo's Coming Soon.

        Hi all,
        Here are some details of this trailer:
        I designed this trailer to hold a 60" pizza table off the front end during transport. Ramps are then attached to the side of the trailer to wheel the table off. I used BAL rear stablizer legs off the back end for leveling and stability. The Gable house gives it a more warm/homey feeling.
        We use 2 other pieces of equipment aside from the pizza table at our events.The events I'm booking are ranging from Corporate to Private.

        I'll be downloading some other images of this trailer at a future date.
        Currently I'm in production of a streamlined version of the trailer that is specifically engineered to hold a Forno Bravo on it. I've omitted the additional space for the table. It will soon be available to the public (August delivery). You can contact me or James directly to discuss your needs or to see production illustrations.

          Pizza to Come

          James, Joseph,

          Bring it on. I'd be really, really interested in the trailer borne pizza idea. Pics would be good, plans would be good or "all good" as they say here in the country.

              Well done. Looks like you'll get a very good seal with what you've done. Don't forget the garden sprayer for lots of steam. When can we expect pics of your first breads?

                    mobile oven

                    So many questions. How do you manage wood burning during the events? Are you using prebaked dough? How many people does it take to keep it running? How much is the finished unit?

                      Another sneak peak at the Mobile Forno Bravo

                      Hi Pizza lovers,
                      This fine mobile pizza oven was delivered to a caterer in SF, Ca earlier this month. Total weight of the trailer is 2750lbs! You can add another 1000lbs of weight in the cabinets underneath.
                      What makes this trailer so special is that the GWR has been calculated by engineers to ensure a safer ride than what can only be guessed otherwise. Also included are electronic brakes, a torsion susupension axel and stablizer legs. We've gone to extremes to produce the safest trailer on the market -not to mention we only use Forno Bravo ovens =Safety and Performance.
                      Feel free to contact us as we are compiling all the specs and options that will be available. We have a second model that is in the design stages as well.
                      Share the joy.

                          I will guess cheese.

                              Looks fantastic. I would be interested in hearing more about any logistical issues you had with the portable oven...prep...set-up...execution, etc.
