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 South Jersey

    I love to cook and have always wanted a wood fired oven. I found a treasure trove of old bricks on Craigslist and figured now's the time. The picture below is about 2/3, still need to pick up the rest. My helpers were key in stacking them all



    I've put the word out to all my friends, looking for various materials. So far have all the cinder block for the stand, concrete mesh, some flue liner and all the rebar I need.

    Bonus,...just found a brand new 3.5 cubic foot cement mixer for $150, that arrives in two days. Once I get that I can start in earnest. The plan is to pour the pad this Sunday and build the stand the weekend after.

    Re: Greetings from South Jersey

    congratulations on your decision! We gathered material for a good 2 years and are very glad we did. Almost 70% of our finished oven includes salvaged and recycled materials. We also made quite a few calls for the firebrick and found out that in our area the prices can differ up to 25 cents per brick so do your homework! Good luck!
