Japan Newbie! - 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!

  • Japan Newbie!

    Hello all! I'm completely new to oven making and working with materials like concrete and brick haha! But I'm living in Japan in a small town that's famous for its ninja clan! There is a real lack of decent pizza places in my area and the options that are here charge an obscene amount for something similar to Dominos. We're talking about $25 - $30 for a large pizza! Not to mention that a Japanese large is an American medium!

    So I've taken it upon myself to learn to build my own wood-fired oven! I would love to cook pies for friends and family and really stick it to the man! I think it would be a fun project and something that would really improve my quality of life! I'm looking forward to talking with all of you!

    Welcome and you are in the right place.
    What type of oven did you have in mind?

      If you are in this to save money the payback curve may be quite long. But the value of eating pizza better than Dominos is more than worth the extra cost.

      Welcome, and looking forward to your build.

        Welcome to, I MUST say, the best place to be for all things wood fired oven.
        This site as no doubt you already know, probably having trawled it yourself before joining up, provides almost everything you need to know. And if not all you need to do is ask.

        Be really interested in knowing your plan towards the best pizza in Japan. Notwithstanding laurentis and mikku
        Cheers Colin

          I have to laugh and agree if I live to be 90 and eat pizza once a week I can get down to about $5.00

            Welcome Wing70301!
            You have really come to the right place for pizza ovens and L O N G W I N D E D C O M M E N T S

            That is me!

            So I give up! What city or town is well known for its Ninja?
            City, Prefecture, Island, --closest big city for dummies like me! Then I kind of know where you are ! And I know a little about your climate!

            How about a little about yourself! What do you do here to bring home a paycheck? How long have you been here? Are you planning on being here a while or in and out person? What is your age group?

            Do you do anything besides work and eat? Something about your interests and mechanical abilities!

            Just call me "interrogator Mikku!" always want to know what is going on with the people I try to share ideas!

            Is wing a handle because you fly? or command an airwing? or a lifestyle of winging things? See--you get the idea! Always got too many questions!

            Is English your native tongue?

              Maybe too many questions?
              If you need help on your build, there are a few of us in Japan who might be able to assist... The value of the assistance is sometimes questionable!
              Welcome aboard!
