Many Thanks James/FB Forum Posters - 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!

  • Many Thanks James/FB Forum Posters

    James: I wanted to take another moment and thank you for developing this forum and to also thank those who take the time to regularly post on the FB forum like Canuck Jim.

    I was showing a friend my Horno del Lena (wood fired oven) the other day and he asked how I knew what I was doing. I responded that my wife and I have always loved to cook and have been willing to try many new recipes an techniques. It wasn't that hard.

    Then, on reflection, I told him that I'd found the Forno Bravo forum and had learned a lot before I'd fired it up. That's very true...without the FB postings I'm sure I would have not had all the successful pizzas, breads, meats and vegetables that we have enjoyed and shared.

    Thanks to you and all you posters. Learning, Experimenting, and Sharing...
    May you alll have many successful firings.

    I'll second that.

    In researching my oven, I found many websites and manufacturers and builders. Some were local to the USA, some downunder and many from Italy. I even stopped by to meet James, who could not have been more cordial and helpful that day that I showed up out of the blue.

    And no where can be found a group such as we have here. I start my day reading this forum. And I have spend many a weekend, inspired by what I have found here.

    My hats off to James and all of the rest of us.

        I know my build would not be going nearly as smooth or worry-free if I weren't able to hit up the forum for advice!

          It just goes to show that from a necessity, comes a good idea, with great response from an enthusiastic group of participants.
          On ya James!!!
          I am also aware of a lot of the other WFO sites but none compare with this one. I am not normally one for forums as they often get out of hand but a select few members, but this one keeps on keeping on with ideas, help to others and all for free!!! A big bonus for those budget builders especially in today's economic environment.

          Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

              I have to jump in as well. If it were not for this forum my out door kitchen would be minus a WFO. Thanks James and all who contribute to make it possible.

                Ditto - When I came across this site, I was looking for oven kit's. Paul and Robert (two of the first builders that have long since passed) gave me the bug to build my own. The plans evolved from those days and every week we see a clever improvement. Thanks Again James!

                  I've got to say thanks too - I had wanted a brick oven for years but I would never have taken the leap from dream to reality if not for the pompeii plans and the support of the WFO community here on this forum!

                    I totally agree. Since this is Thanksgiving time, I also want to say "thanks" to James and others who allowed me to walk through the process of building something that I knew nothing about!

                      I can attest to the other site thing, when I was doing my inital research on the oven I came across a few sites that nearly deterred my desire to build. This one makes it seem if not easy, totally doable!

                            James, I could rattle on, but just suffice it so say thank you so much. This forum and the work you do is just fantastic. Change my life, and definitely changed my plans for an oven (not to mention my plans from whom I will buy bits to build and go along with it!). You are providing a wonderful thing here, and I can't thank you enough for it!

                              Well, I don't want to be the only one that doesn't chime in on this one! I agree with all the thank yous and I need to add that the first time a looked at the FB building Instructions PDF, I read that you don't have to be a master mason to build one of these from scratch. With help from the fine community here- it's a fact! No chance that a novice like me could build an oven without FB. I would have kept ordering from Dominos!
