Looks like a lot of fun - 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!

    What a great resource. I was just noodling the idea of building a pizza oven, but now that I've found this site and forum I have no excuses! I live on 15 acres in central California. I will be following the stories of you here as I gear up to build one of my own.

      Go for it Jim,
      I did the very same thing a few months ago and am enjoying the results today.
      Watch out that you don't get information overload! Very easy to achieve at this forum.
      Great incentive to get going with realistic expectations, material selection, sourcing, build and then how to use it with receipes and all the know how that goes with it.
      I got a lot out of it and continue with the cooking ideas and assistance from other members experiences.

      Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

      The more I learn, the more I realise how little I know

        I think I will just follow the basic instructions for the larger size. We're just trying to finish up building our house, so I may take a break from projects for a while but will be lurking here, and will eventually get going.

        Thanks for the encouragement!

          You've come to the right place to get yourself educated. You will be amazed (as I was) at the depth of knowledge and generosity of the forum members. I figure I am about halfway through my oven build and no way would I have gotten this far without the forum's support.

          I was in your neck of the woods last spring on a trip to Angles' Camp. I remember Copperopolis as a charming town.

          Best of luck to you,
