Newbie FB Pompeii90 build - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

  • Newbie FB Pompeii90 build

    Hi Everyone,
    I'm new to this forum and building a WFO. We purchased the Forno Bravo Pompeii90 kit and picked it up the other day in Marina, CA. We live outside Sacramento, CA so it was a days ride over and back. We started this venture (pizza oven) by being in Boquete, Panama a month ago. The folks we stayed with (in a casita on their property) had a small WFO and then we went on a tour of a coffee farm and the fellow who owns the from is fram San Francisco. He had built a Pompeii 42" and we were intrigued. We decided to build one because we both love to cook. So on we go. I appreciate the response regarding the IT so far and look forward to more info, both getting and giving in the near future. Have placed the pad already and will start on the concrete block walls whenever it stops RAINING!!! Oh well, better the rain.

    If you are thinking about building a brick oven, my advice is Here.
    Our One Meter Pompeii Oven album is here.
    An album showing our Thermal Breaks is Here.

    I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.
