Getting Ready to Fire Up in Texas - 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!

  • Getting Ready to Fire Up in Texas


    My name is Jamie, and I'm just about finished installing a Giardino 70 modular oven. I chose the modular oven to speed up construction as well as keep the footprint a bit smaller than many of the ovens I've seen built on this forum. I'm definitely more into the cooking side of this than the construction side, but I've channeled my inner mason to get this thing built. Looking to starting curing fires next weekend. I built this oven to hone my skills and recipes as I'm thinking about opening a Neopolitan pizzeria to fill the appalling lack of quality pizza available in the Houston area.

    Good luck Jamie, be sure to post some pictures of your oven, its always interesting to see how other people skin the cat

    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.

      Thanks Lee. Finally figured out how to post photos, so I just uploaded the series I took during my build.
