Hello from Nanaimo, BC - 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 from Nanaimo, BC

    Hello all,

    I live on Beautiful Vancouver Island on the left coast, and am just starting to plan my patio and outdoor kitchen in the house my wife and I bought last Spring. I am planning a concrete paver patio, with L shape kitchen which will include a wood oven and built-in Charcoal BBQ. I have not yet decided if I want to build a pompeii oven or the Casa2G modular.

    I have grand ideas, and currently measuring up the backyard, and costing the project(s) up, so I will be posting lots of questions and showing my progress, as I have found with other hobbies, it is amazing the help and support one can receive in forums.

      I am still aways from starting the WFO Build, I am hoping for Late Summer or Early Fall. I am now sure I am going to build a pompeii oven, as I have been able to source firebrick here in Nanaimo as the shipping cost for the Pompeii Kit is more than the cost of the kit.

      I am starting the the patio and kitchen foundation this weekend, and I figure it will be at least a 3 month project. I am almost finished with my plans and will psot them when finished.
