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!

  • New guy from TN

    I've finally decided to take the plunge and build my first WFO. As a former NJ resident now living in the south, I'm more than a little dissatisfied with the pizza available here.

    This site looks like exactly what I need to get this project up and running. Thanks in advance for everyones' advice and input. I'm going to need it....

      Brad,
      I've thought about incorporating a smoker into my oven but I'm not sure I if will as I already have a barrel smoker. I want to keep a modest budget with this project and have just begun scrounging used red brick. Have you sourced any of your materials locally and economically?

        Family had 3000 clinker brick left over from a construction project... That helped a lot... have a bunch of pavers I found for the base... Look on craigslist for free items or under materials, I always find good things to recycle there. where in tn are you located?
