Howdy from League City, Texas - 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 from League City, Texas

    Hi folks,
    I have been browsing this and numerous other sites for the last year dreaming of building my own oven. Tired of waiting to get the large amount of "dough" together to go with a full fledged brick oven, I began construction of a cob oven a couple of months back. All that time to this point has been put into a solid base that will stand up over the years and be reusable should my oven not hold up, fail to meet expectations , etc.

    In the near future, I'll post the picture series of the work and a bit on what I've learned. I have not cooked in wood fired ovens before but, I'm no stranger to wood cooking. A little learning curve on temps, recipes and all but looking forward to it.

    Thanks for all of the information you folks have supplied that has shaped what I am doing. Hope to pay back and forward a little by sharing what I have built.

      Thanks will do.
      I guess there was quite a delay in the system. I made the first intro post about 2~3 weeks ago and thinking it didn't make it through (since it never popped up, posted again.
