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!

  • Greetings from Western Orygun

    Hello,

    We are in the process of leaving suburbia and relocating to 30 acres (17 forested) in the western Willamette Valley. Once the boxes are unpacked (or maybe a tad before) I want to construct a a wood fired oven for our new hillside home.

    Having the opportunity to learn from the group's experiences will be something I look forward to andding my $.02 from this culinary experience as well.

    Would that be Yamhill part of Western Willamtte Valley? We are in Eugene Area. South Western Willamette Valley. I have yet to start my WFO. Still working on the wifes OK. Welcome to the forum. I am a newbie here too. If you have 17 forested Acres. It would be a crime to not have a WFO. Good Luck Gene

          Small world Nic, we're in the same industry (me at the nursery end) and live in the same neck of the woods (me between Newberg and Yamhill) I'd love to see your handywork sometime.

            Thanks Gene and Nic. With posts on this board from all over the world it is nice to get responses from WFO'ers practically in my back yard. Making it a smaller world, I live between Newberg & Yamhill. I am also in the nursery business. Love to see your work sometime Nic.

              Mike, we'll have to have you over some pizza and other WFO creations here in the next couple weeks. Right now the outdoor kitchen/living space is upside down while I pour and polish concrete counters and hearths and simultaneously try to construct the flue and chimney on the fireplace!!

              This is the first one we did a few years ago in Lake Oswego with one of the Casa kits. It is still my all time favorite outdoor living space that we have created. At least until I get mine wrapped up

                Excellent work Nic. That is an awesome outdoor space.
                We are currently making moving trips between Yamhill County and Puyallup. Once the dust settles and the boxes are gone, I'm looking forward to getting this project underway.

                  Wow this world just keeps getting smaller. I grew up in Issaquah. For those not familiar with Washington that's less than a 30 minute drive from Puyallup.
