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!

  • Pompeii plans hit 1,000

    Some time tomorrow the Pompeii Oven plans will be downloaded for the 1,000th time. That's pretty exciting. At the start, the plans were being "ordered" about 10 times a day, but over the past week, they have been downloaded over 20 times a day.

    So it looks like the word is getting out. Tell a friend.

    The Wood Fired Cooking and Wood Fired Bread e-Books have also been downloaded about 500 times each, and the Pizza Book is the second most popular in current downloads. Not bad.

    The joke I've been making is that I paid $100 for my first set of plans. Hmmmm. $100 times 1,000.... Then, I stop dreaming. :-)

    Kind of like the old saying "If I had a nickle for" (fill in the blank)

    Great work

      Congratulations! I downloaded just a couple of weeks ago and I bet I've read them 1,000 times!

            I built a 42" Pompei, from the plans....., I gave a copy of the wood fired cooking book to my mom, we had bought a few from the barnes & noble, but she said yours was the best.... keep up the good work and thanks so much for the forum and all the info as It would have been incredibly more difficult without to build my oven without it and your plans...

              I am new to the site, but I have already downloaded all the ebooks and found the plans will be perfect for my WFO project.

              Thank you so much!

                Hey guys,

                I hope you get a kick out this -- the Pompeii eBook has now been downloaded over 25,000 times. How cool is that?

                Keep building and keeping enjoying your ovens!

                  How many ovens do you figure have been built from the plans? I know it's hard to tell, since so many (me includuded) have never posted any proof of having built one.

                    That's a good question. I don't think we can make an accurate guess -- but it runs into the thousands. There are FB ovens all over the world:

                    US, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Brasil, UK, Ireland, Sweden, Denmark, France, Belgium, Amsterdam, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Israel, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Iraq, Russia, Japan, Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, New Zealand -- and I'm sure there are others. :-)

                        Australia comes to mind.

                        But it's astonishing how impacting - life altering that these ovens seem to be.


                        James,
                        You are making a distinctive mark, globaly. And I think that that must be very rewarding.

                        As backyard ovens replace barbaques, your legacy will grow.

                          Thanks guys. We're getting there one back yard at a time. :-)

                          I'm having blast, and FB has all sorts of things planned for next year; which I cannot wait to announce. My only complaint is a small tear on my right achilles, which has to heal before my next race -- Dec. 6. I'm stuck on an ellipitcal for now, which just isn't the same.

                          Seriously, thanks again.
