Hello from Bremerton, WA - 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!

  • Hello from Bremerton, WA

    While attending our annual family reunion out in Wolf Creek, MT I had mentioned to a number of people that the reunion site could really use a woodfired pizza oven. I'm guessing I made this comment for the 5th year in a row 2009. 2010 rolled around and I asked myself why I keep thinking-about-talking-about building the oven. We have since built the stand during our 2010 reunion and I am hoping to drive out to MT and assemble the floor and dome with my Dad in late August. I am precutting the bricks in my garage and assembling the structure with wooden shims on form. It's a 42 inch tuscan. I've posted a couple photos in the Dome section of the photo part of the forum.

    Glad to be here, glad this forum is here, and hope to talk to some interesting people during their build as well. Thanks Forno Bravo for operating such an awesome well balanced and organized site, I kind of feel like you guys are the Google of the pizza oven sites. You realize that you can make plans open source and will still benefit from the people who take on the DIY oven builds.

    If you have ever watched Close Encounters of Third Kind's mashed potatoes scene I believe I closely resemble that guy at this point in the process. I am hoping to progress through the build rapidly enough that my wife will not kill me because unless she is talking pizza oven I am not listening very well....

    Hi Sean and welcome aboard.
    I hope that you will enjoy this forum as I have over the years.
    Post heaps of pics once you've decided on all those choices that you have to make and enjoy.
