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!

  • Greetings from CT

    Hey All,
    Just joined, but been reading from this forum for a while.
    but as any newbie I have tons of questions and plenty of help.
    looking to start my build late summer early fall.
    Literally been cooking all my life back when there was no option to help in the kitchen when Mom was getting stuff ready for family dinnerbut been catching my attention more and more cooking using WFO and bottom line love it.
    Here to have a great time learning.
    Thanks.
    Dave

    Welcome D Rod, Something mysterious about WFOs. Start with going to the Newbie section look at the attached link. It is a composite of some of the best documented builds on the forum. Then ask away, for the most part you will get a myriad of answers and suggestions. If you have not downloaded the free Pompeli plans from our forum host Forno Bravo, then do so, it is a good but dated baseline.

          I went to stone place off brainard rd and they quoted me on the bricks for 1.28 ea. is that fair enough? do you know any place who supply bricks locally?

            While I know some have managed to scrounge them for cheaper, $1.28 is a fantastic price for firebricks. I paid $1.69 a brick in Washington DC area and thought I got a reasonable deal. The Aussies have to pay upwards of $3 per. Presuming they were quoting you a price for firebricks, yes?

                Is that Stone Depot that you went to? That price is about right for CT.

                You can also try Better Stones in East Hartford off rt 84.

                When we build, let us think that we build for ever.
