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!

    Just downloaded the pompeii oven instructions and I am already drooling. Can't wait for my first Pizza party in my new oven. Only problem is I don't know when i will be done so i guess i better buy a bid for all of the drool: Look forward to the build and scouring this site for ideas and tips. Thanks

    Re: Just Getting Started

    Welcome! The plan gives you a good general idea of what's involved in the building process. But make sure you read through dozens of build threads here as there are so many tricks and ideas so you'll end up with exactly what you need from beginning to end.

    What part of L.A. are you located?

      WCS,
      George gives good advice: read through several threads for each process (ie: building your stand and support slab, under-oven insulation, oven style and entry geometry, etc) to glean answers to the same questions you will have.

      But first!!! Look at as many completed ovens as you can to determine what style you want when you're done. There is no reason to make an oven that looks like someone else's. You will put so much thought and sweat and attention into constructing your oven that it will be all yours. It might as well look like yours too.

      Looking forward to seeing your plans.

      John
