G'Day from NSW Australia - 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!

  • G'Day from NSW Australia

    Hi everyone

    My name is Pip and i've finally joined up after many years of lurking in the background and having the main web site saved to my favorites

    I've always been interested in making my own WFO but haven't really had the area to put one, but by the end of the year I will be moving into a new place with a far more practical back yard where I can play to my hearts content!!

    I will be researching and picking all your brains over the coming months and will most likely be building something early next year......Very much looking forward to it.

    I love cooking and especially love cooking outside. I use my BBQ at least 3 times a week, and I have made a slow cooker/smoker called a UDS (ugly drum smoker), which I use a few times a month as well. I'm not to far off buying a professional smoker set up to really get my love of smoked food to another level.

    I can see myself going through everything in this forum over the coming days & weeks to really work out which way I want to head with the style and size of WFO that will be best of me!!

    Thanks everyone

    Working at an Aluminium Smelter, we have large amounts of refractory bricks and tiles, and the motor to go with it........

    So with that in mine I have been talking with the refractory supervisor and I should be able to get any number of bricks and how ever much motor I need at a dramatically reduced price....Maybe even free if I'm lucky Will get it all and store it on my parents property for safe keeping until i'm ready to build.

    I'm bloody happy about this new turn of events as it lets me spend the money on getting decorative tiles and more bench space, and generally making the whole thing look more pretty

      DONT use any secondhand bricks, they could have nasties from the smelter, espescially from chimney stacks.

        thanks for the reply Johny, and yeah I wasn't planning on it.....all the brick I will get will be straight from the factory still on the pallet
