Hello from Phoenix AZ - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

  • Hello from Phoenix AZ

    Ok, my next project is a pizza oven. My last one was setting up the equipment to make craft beer at home. That checkmark has been checked(and checked, and checked...), and now ready to make the pizza to go with it. Totally stoked (no pun intended). I am in my 30s with three little kids at home. The wife is supportive (important) in this new venture. I am a Dallas Cowboys and Texas Rangers fan, but please don't hold it against me.

    Looking forward to reading through posts and figuring out the basics. I have attached a picture of the location of my oven in my backyard. Thank you guys ahead of time for the content you have already posted and helping me along the way.

    My preliminary questions (will be searching this site) are:

    1. how to choose a proper location
    2. Can I build a 42" oven that I can have as "semi-mobile"? I don't want to live in this house forever, but I want this brick oven forever, you know?

    Thanks guys (and gals)

    If you want an oven that will move with you, perhaps an oven with wheels from the fornobravo store would suit you.

    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.

      Just checked our your organized archive...very nice.

      I think it is just more likely to build another one if I move. Looks like I have lots of research ahead of me.

        "I don't want to live in this house forever, but I want this brick oven forever, you know?"

        I would just leave it. Add it to the price of your house or as a selling factor.

        Use the proceeds to build another, better, oven with the skills you will end up with.
