Portable WFO possibly for sale... - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

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.

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.

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!

  • Portable WFO possibly for sale...

    Just testing the waters...
    thinking about selling my portable WFO built using castable refractory.
    You can view the build thread here.

    I was thinking of asking around $4k....?

    If anyone is remotely interested let me know and I will add recent pictures of it.

    It takes about 1hr to get to cooking heat (800f) and I can cook about 12 pizzas and only add two logs to the oven to maintain the heat.

    it's called many hours of manual labor...

      And a pizza place spends how much in materials to sell a pie for eight dollars? The laborer is worthy of his hire, I say.

        I actually did a bit of math after my build and determined that my $2100 investment (all oven build expenses, including tools) would actually be a $10,000 ++ job if I were to duplicate it for someone else (charging local mason rates....not those of a DR. or lawyer)

        Many, many hours of manual labor. Go for it Joey, you deserve every penny you are asking and then some.

          I have to admit that as I read that post I thought it was very sarcastic, but I find it hard to believe a 'brickie' wouldn't see the value in labor? Price seems reasonable to me for something you can haul around.
