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!

  • Getting to it - my first Brick Oven

    I'm living in Canmore Alberta and am working on my first brick oven. I had a clay oven when I lived in Golden, BC and it didn't withstand the winters too well. It wasn't on a proper foundation and didn't have much of a roof. But it was fun to cook in and I miss having one. So, I'm getting started here with something more permanent.

    I posted some photos at:

    Its loosely based on the design from the "Bread Builders."

      Nice looking work RobertoGman. I'm sure this oven will serve you much longer than the clay one. I'll keep checking back for more pics.

          Hey Rob,

          So I'm not quite as far as yourself (as the pictures denote, I'm only on the platform at the mo)... But I must say that I am impressed with your photos and idea to build a more square-ish oven... I was considering the round style but am concerned only becuase my level of masonary work is less, than I would imagine, than anyone's here --- then I look at these photos and, with the level of detail enclosed in the pictures, hope to be able t produce something even remotely similar...Anyways, good job and one question I had to ask... How did you morter in the bricks on the floor there? Did you place them as the insulating cement set or what was the deal?
