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!

  • Roof is on....almost done

    I just had the saltillo tile roof installed this week on my oven. Pretty happy with the way it turned out. It does look like the roofs you would see throughout Italy. Next up is the stone or rock work on the walls and chimney. I am debating between a cultured stone or real stone veneer. Due to costs, probably will not be done until late this year or next spring.

    The main thing is the oven is working very well and everyone we have over loves the pizzas. Thanks to everyone for their input and great advice. Definitely could not have done it without this great forum James has started and without Forno Bravo!!

    Grazie James.

    Nice, nice.

    I love the tiled roof. I had the same roof in Sicily. Every night in the summer, just at sun down/dusk, the bats would come pouring out of my attic, one at a time from between those tiles. I'd watch them emerge and fly off into the night. Very cool to see. As a renter, you don't really care. If I owned the place, I'd be trying to get them out of there.

      No no, they don't hurt the house and they keep the insects down! I'd love to have bats in our roof, and actually considered building nests for them... but I bet they'd stay empty. Haven't had much luck attracting hedgehogs into the garden so far either...

      Any bats in your oven roof yet?

        Frances; if you'd like i'll ship you our bats. Yes they do keep the bug population down but are quite a pain when they get inside the house. After living here for 14 years i've finally got it down to about 1 a year in the living areas. Although i can't say that about the attic. However if you are looking to keep them around the house for bug control do an internet search for bat houses.

          No bats yet and the way the roof was installed I do not think they will be able to make any nests. I have attached a photo of how I want my finished product to look like. Still debating between cultured or stone veneer. The only product I have found so far in the look I am wanting is a cultured stone. I really do like the overgrout technique though.
