Intro - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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 everyone!!

    I have been researching pizza ovens for a few months now and figured it was time to stop lurking and start building. If all goes well I will be pouring the base in two days from now. I have pics of the prep work and will post once I have poured the base and taken a couple more pics to include.

    The plan is to build a 42" Pompeii with a gable house finish. Right now the plan is to get the base, block wall and hearth installed before winter sets in. Then finish the rest next summer.

        Yeh, Trapper, welcome aboard.
        one thing down here in Australia, we don't get the cold snow/ice climate (except for up in the high country), so we can build all year round which makes an oven build around a month.
        Anyway, good luck and enjoy, this is but the beginning mate!
