Howdy Everyone from Jack Rabbit Junction - 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!

  • Howdy Everyone from Jack Rabbit Junction

    Grettings everyone,
    Name's Larry. I've been perusing the site and forums for over a year and a half and have finally bitten the bullet and decided to build a 36" Pompei style oven in my backyard.

    Last month I poured the base slab, the last few weekends I've been laying out cement block, going to fill cores thin Memorial Day weekend. It takes me a while because I only have a Jeep Wrangler and I throw a few bags of mortar/concrete, or 13 ciner blocks, or 40 fire bricks in the back on my way home from work.

    Anyways, I'll take the following week off to go to California for my youngest niece's High School graduation, then on the 15th, I'll rent a small mixer from HD and pour my hearth.

    That about is where I'm at for now, Oh Yeah, for those who might be wondering? Jack Rabbit Junction used to be the name for Silver Springs Nevada in the Great Basin.

    Welcome Larry

    It sounds like you have a good plan. A daily trip to the supply center seemed the norm for quite a while for me, your trips home from work with a load of essentials will soon aggregate all you need to build your oven...A good plan.

    If your planning can stay a step or two ahead of your work, you will have a minimum of do-overs.

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