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!

  • Hi from York, UK

    Just started researching next summers project (hopefully).

    I LOVE pizza and am really looking forwards to recreating the ones we had on the Amalfi coast.

    This is a great resource.

    Hope to be posting progress pics in 2013.

    Cheers,

    Paul

    Hi Paul
    Welcome, just a quick question - what are the price of cinder blocks / breeze blocks back there. I am an ex pat and they are asking equivilent of 3 quid each (just noticed I dont have a pound sign key on my keyboard either, doh)?
    All the best with your project, I have just laid a base for mine, see the gallery
    Cheers - Andy Bring on summer

      Hi Andy,

      I must admit to not looking at breeze blocks yet. Just been planning the dome.
      Hopefully we will be having an extension built next year, so I will probably get the builders to pour the foundation and build the base. I'll take over to pour the hearth and construct the dome.

      Still need to finalise my ideas, but fancy an igloo design decorated in mosaics as I have seen on here.

      From a quick search:

      Breeze blocks: approx 1.50 each, but depends on size

      Firebricks: 1.29 each from Firebricks

      Hopefully this year we will have a summer!

      Cheers,

      Paul

        paul,
        If you haven't already, download the free FornoBravo pompeli plans. It is a great baseline to help you plan your oven. Looking forward to seeing your build in 2013.
