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!

  • Oil Drum Wood Fired Oven + BBQ - On Wheels!!

    Ok, so I'd planned on starting this thread a week or so when I started my build but i had problems registering so this is going to be a bit of a cath-up!

    Essentially I love BBQ and home pizza making, but I've reached the limits of my little weber BBQ and my conventional oven with pizza stone so I decided to make a custom half wood fired/brick lined oven, half BBQ based around an oil drum.

    It's actually almost finished so I'll post a few photos of the development and a link to my album so you can see what's been hapenning. Questions/comments welcome. I wanted to post all of my picture thumbnails in one go but apparently I'm only allowed 4 pictures per post?

                Can someone give me some hints here? I've fired the oven tonight and cooked pizza and wanted to post the photos that I'd taken of the whole process but the forum will only let me attach 5 pictures in a single post and I seem to remember that it also wont let me post more than 5 thumbnails/hotlinks to my image hoster in a single post? Please let me know if i'm missing something here but I can't believe that a forum sub-section relating to photo posting would have these limitations, everyone reading this post has a broadband connection, 20 thumbnails in a single post isn't gonna grind the internet to a halt.

                  You will have to do it in multiple posts. Every pic, every , every , counts to ward the dreaded five .
                  You can however, link to a slide show on a photo site like Picasso or Photobucket etc. if you really want to keep the presentation intact.

                    Thanks for the confirmation, I think I'll just post this one:



                    and then leave this thread. If any forum administrators read this then please realise that a 5 picture limit is ridiculous in the photo sub-secton of a forum in 2012.

                      Forno Bravo sells Pizza Ovens, kits, and accessories. They do not make anything off of us who build our own ovens from scratch and buy materials locally. I still do not understand how they maintain such a populated site that, in which, the majority of it's members do not really contribute very much to their bottom line. I would have loved to see your presentation. I and many others are always open for shared experineces with the WFO. But, if you can't do a simple "work around" to the system as it is, I guess that we will just have to miss out .

                        WOW, I guess I will stop reading books without pictures. Learning and sharing information is why more of us are here. The photos are the cream on the top!

                          Looks like a lot of engineering went into that build. Looks cool!

                            Its because, God bless em, the Mods of this fine forum cant work out which button to press to make it all work like it should.
