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!

  • *waves from Virginia, USA*

    Greetings, pizza oven enthusiasts!

    I'm so new to pizza ovens that I don't even have one...yet! I stumbled across the Forno Bravo site while doing a search for "build your own brick oven". It was hands down the most complete, easy-to-follow site I saw. After spending a day lurking around this forum, I couldn't stand it anymore and I signed up.

    Anyway, my husband and I are still weighing our options. He wants to go all out and build one ourselves... but I'm the chicken who's considering an assembled one.

    Haha we should have it figured out soon, and I'll post back when we've made our choice!

      Welcome! At first glance, it does appear to be a daunting task to build it out of brick. You are not the first. There is PLENTY of help here. The kit is obviously faster but more expensive. Either way you go, welcome to the obsession.

      If at first you don't succeed... Skydiving isn't for you.

          Hi, Mr. Chipster, but I'm afraid we're "Go Army!" in this household! Hope you won't hold it against me. Thanks for the kind welcome!

          Les, you are SO right about there being a lot of help available on this forum! I already know I've lost the battle...my husband's already downloaded the Pompeii oven ebook! I'm sure we'll be building sooner rather than later.

          Faith, I'm in Central Va, near Charlottesville! Just a couple hours on 81, I reckon. Nice to meet you.

          My one burning question, can an oven made from the Pompeii plans roast a turkey? Pizza's great, sourdough bread's even better, but a TURKEY in my VERY OWN brick oven would blow my mother-in-law's mind when I host Thanksgiving later this year!

              I'm in Harrisonburg. You are more than welcome to see my oven if you would like.

              I have roasted chickens, turkeys, cooked steaks...I think you can do pretty much anything you can dream up. Smoking, dehydrating, slow cooking. It is way cool to work with the oven.

              A friend and I did multigrain bread last weekend after pizza the night before.

                Welcome! My wife and I almost relocated to that area a few years ago...beautiful, and lots of stone! You'll see how versatile these ovens are the most you research.
